"After taking a sip of this Azur rosé, close your eyes. You’ll be transported to sunny Provence sans airport security lines and itty-bitty plane seats. The pale salmon color belies the deliciously refreshing strawberry and watermelon fruit layered with intriguing mineral notes that glide over the palate like silk.

When Èlan and Julien Fayard, who came to Napa Valley from southern France, first started making this rosé in 2007, it was considered a bold move. There was nary a dry rosé to be found in the valley at the time. Today, the category continues its popularity streak."
