NV Une Femme "The Callie" Sparkling Rose, California (750ml)
About the Icons
A Quarterly Sparkling Wine Club Selection
Une Femme was founded in 2019 by Jen Pelka, CEO and owner of Magnum PR and founder of The Riddler, the all-women-funded Champagne bars in San Francisco and New York. Une Femme is a young women-led wine company dedicated to highlighting sparkling wines made by women, and rooted in women-focused charitable giving. Born out of the realization that every time she put a woman-made wine on her wine list, it would outsell all others, Jen was moved to create a modern sparkling wine brand aimed at, and celebrating women. Each of the Une Femme wines is made in partnership with leading women in the wine world.
The Callie sparkling rosé is a collaboration with POE Wines in Napa—made by up-and-coming winemaker Samantha Sheehan. Samantha founded POE in 2009, inspired by the wines she tasted in Burgundy and Champagne. She strives to create site-speciﬁc, age-worthy wines that showcase California’s terroir, using minimal intervention winemaking techniques, judicious use of sulfur, and never any additives. This bottling is a blend of 90% Zinfandel and 10% Chardonnay, sourced from Sonoma and Napa counties, viniﬁed in the traditional Champagne method.
Peach hue. Delicate aromas of red apple and orange blossom. The rather sot, oﬀ-dry palate shows ﬂavors of raspberry, strawberry and red apple skin. This crushable rosé sparkler has a persistent bead and a juicy, fruit-driven ﬁnish.
A portion of proceeds from The Callie gives back to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
