Rose Wines and Pink Aperitif to Sip Through Spring and Summer

Renowned wine and spirits writer Amanda Schuster features our Rosé Vermú among top drinks for the 2021 spring and summer seasons: "This delicious pink vermouth from Baltimore, MD is made from local wine and infused with botanicals such as cinchona bark, Spanish oranges, chamomile, wormwood, gentian root, juniper berries, clove, and star anise. The flavor is tangy, warm and spicy, hitting the flavor target between tart and sweet..."

Freed from the Cocktail

Wine & Spirits Magazine featured our Rosé Vermú, adding that this "vermouth evokes pink grapefruit and chamomile. Enchanting on its own, it’s sublime with a nip of Campari and gin for a Negroni-esque drink called a Marianito."

Imbibe Magazine: What We are Drinking Now

Imbibe's May/June print issue highlights our Rosé Vermú: "Crafted from the winery's rosé and fortified with a Chambourcin grape spirit (distilled by their Union Collective neighbors Baltimore Spirits Co.), the vermouth is accented with botanicals like Valencia orange peel, juniper, chamomile, and clove. The result is juicy and bittersweet, with a heady floral aroma that opens up nicely with bubbles for a simple spritz..."

Conversations with Enrique Pallares

Interview with The Wine Collective's co-founder, Enrique Pallares: "We wanted to bring people behind the veil of winemaking by creating a winery with a tasting room in the middle, a sort of contrivance of theatrical mutuality where the winery and the tasting room are each other’s audience, witnessing the spectacle of making and feasting together–a logistical nightmare and a conceptual dream."

Wine Collective Rose Vermu

Wine and spirits connoisseur Amanda Schuster rates our Rosé Vermú highly (92 pts) on Distiller.com, adding: "A pleasant scent of fresh berries, pine trees and blood orange carries the nose, with more pronounced fruitiness (watermelon, strawberry, orange, lichee) on the palate. A refreshing note of mint, earthy green tea and warm spices follow through into the finish. It's a delightful, semi-sweet sipper on its own, but would be excellent to use to lighten up summer Negronis, or even a summer version of a Manhattan, not to mention an array of spritzes. "
