Bouquet of rosés pouring in Los Gatos


There was much jubilation when the 2024 Sunset Wine Competition awards were announced and the 2023 Boathouse Pinot Noir Rosé from Kings Mountain Vineyards in Woodside received a Double Gold and 97 points.

You can taste this new rosé, made by legendary vintner Nate Kandler of Thomas Fogarty and Precedent, at a pop-up party at The Tasting House in Los Gatos, June 22, 1-3 p.m. Taste four exceptional Santa Cruz Mountains wines from Kings Mountain Vineyards, including the 2021 Clone 13 and 2021 Bacchus Pinot Noir, both of which were awarded Gold at Sunset. The $50 ticket price includes a bottle of the limited-edition Boathouse rosé. https://www.tastinghouse.com/events

Speaking of rosés, we recently tasted the new Rhys Sparkling Brut Rosé, which has an annoying habit of evaporating from the glass. A sure winner. The 2021 Rhys Horseshoe Chardonnay is stunning in its minerality, and the 2021 Rhys Pajaro Pinot Noir fires on all cylinders. Rhys just added Sunday hours to its tasting room on Skyline Boulevard in Los Gatos, so appointments are now available Wednesdays-Sundays at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., in advance only to https://rhysvineyards.com.

Gali Wines just released three new wines made by Ridge’s former winemaker Eric Baugher. The 2023 Gali Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir is crisp, clean and precise. The 2022 Gali Estate Chardonnay, made from an old Wente clone, was barrel-fermented and stirred frequently while aging in 11 percent new Francois Frere barrels. The 2022 Gali Estate Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir has carefully tamed tannins make this wine enjoyable right now. These wines are available at Gali’s tasting room,  21 W. Main St. in Los Gatos.
