“We are very happy at La Celia to add a Rosé wine to the portfolio, it is a point of balance between our reds and whites and is made up of two very fine varieties such as Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio, which develop very well in cooler regions, like ours in Valle de Uco. With an aromatic combination of red fruits and flowers, Celia Rosé bears elegance and refinement, which is the hallmark of our wines” explains Andrea Ferreyra, Head of Oenology at the winery.
