  • Bieler Père et Fils Rosé is an homage to Charles’s father, Philippe, who ushered he and his sister Mira into the wine business in the mid-1990s. This particular bottling was named after Charles’s daughter, Sabine, who was born in 2005, the year of the wine’s inaugural vintage.
  • The classic Provence Rosé profile is what every serious winemaker around the world attempts to mimic and for good reason. Our goal is to find the delicate balance between floral, herbal, wild red fruit (not overly ripe), stone fruit and acid. We don’t want singular big flavors, we want more nuance, energy, soul and personality. While all our fruit is contracted, we have been working with these same growers since 2005 and collaborate closely on every aspect, as if we were partners in each other’s business.” – Charles Bieler
