Rosewood Estates Winery & Meadery is an award winning boutique winery located on the Beamsville Bench. Family owned and operated, Rosewood is proud to produce 100% VQA Ontario wines and the first honey wines in Niagara. The winery crafts low-intervention wine, innovative mead, and local honey that reflect their individuality as artifacts of the Niagara Region. 

The Rosewood story begins over 80 years ago when R.W. Roman’s passion for beekeeping and mead began as a teenager in Ukraine. After arriving in Canada, he continued keeping bees alongside his son, Eugene Roman, who quickly fell in love with the craft. Years later, during Eugene & Renata’s honeymoon to Niagara-on-the-Lake, the two fell in love with the region for its natural beauty, people and wines. Here the concept of Rosewood began, as Eugene promised his new wife that one day he would build a winery with her. After years of planning, planting and a decade of harvests, the team is made up of a diverse group of talented and passionate wine-loving individuals.

Tasting Notes

More aromatic than your average Chardonnay dominant blend due to the inclusion of Chardonnay Musque.  This wine offers lots of stone fruit, white peach, pear some white flower aromas.  The medium bodied palate is round with a silky texture and tangy fresh acidity with lemon curd and green apple flavours.  Just a kiss of neutral oak adds interest and does not detract from the freshness the wine.  Delicious with salads, seafood and chicken tacos. 

Method

The 2020 vintage of Follow The White Rabbit is a blend of 64%  Chardonnay, 21% Semillon, 11% Chardonnay Musque, 4% Pinot Gris.  Hand sorted, whole-cluster press, fermented wild in 25% fermented in neutral oak puncheons and 75% stainless steel with no additions used in the winemaking.  The wine is aged on the fine lees for 8 months and bottled unfined.
