Being one of the winemaking pioneers of Santa Barbara County, The Brander Vineyard produces a range of distinctive and flavorful sines made from Bordeaux style varieties.  In making our 2017 Rosé wine, we blended Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which made for a refreshing, balanced wine that easily pairs with a variety of foods.
