WHO: Tom Nye, Master Winemaker & General Manager, The Blind Horse Restaurant & Winery
“While dry Rosé wine may not have the prestige of other wines in our industry, it’s always been one of my personal favorites because of its versatility, complexity and elegance it can exhibit. This Rosé is crafted with a blend of Grenache and Sangiovese grapes and is the result of years of tweeking and refinement in our process and the grapes used, which finally has produced a Rosé wine capable of reaching those high standards.” ~ Tom Nye
