From the same family behind Clif Bar & Company comes Clif Family Winery, founded by Gary Erickson and Kit Crawford in the famed St. Helena region of Napa Valley. Gary and Kit began their love of food and wine with cycling adventures through Italy where long days of cycling would end in leisurely evenings of good wine, food and hospitality. As great lovers of food, wine and adventure, Gary and Kit hope to bring these memorable experiences to their Napa Valley home.

Their 2019 Rosé of Grenache comes primarily from the Bartolomei Brothers Vineyard near McClure Creek in Mendocino County where fourth generation farmers nurture these vines. Pale pink in color, this Rosé offers fresh aromas of watermelon, green apple, juicy peach and jasmine. A refreshing mouthfeel accentuates the fruit on the palate with flavors of raspberry, ripe pear, and sour candy watermelon that lead into a long, tangy finish.
