Behold Bretta Rosé! The foundation of this gem is Bretta Weisse, our Berliner wheat beer acidified and matured in French oak puncheons for 10 months. Add 1.5 lbs/gallon of fresh raspberries; allow a secondary wild fermentation and further maturation for 4 months and, voila! The result is a crisp effervescent concoction, bursting with raspberry perfume and flavor, bracing acidity, underlying funk, and a clean refreshing finish.
Thirty miles north of Barrelworks lays the fertile Santa Maria Valley, and one of its' crown jewels are locally grown Marvella raspberries. We jumped at the opportunity to ferment fresh local raspberries, and over the years have come to understand the effects of soil, season and sun on the fruit - much akin to the concept of Terroir with wine grapes.
For the first time, taste our 2016, 2017, and 2018 releases of Bretta Rosé side by side, and join us in an understanding of the effects of season and aging on both the fruit and our wild creations. A Santê!
