more than just wine

hey hey it's rosé
When picking a Winter Rosé: "You’re going to want to seek out rosés with more skin contact that will result in a darker, almost ruby color. These rosés tend to have more body, a livelier personality, and a dryer mouthfeel that can stand up to heartier dishes.” - @britandco
Wine and book pairings is a thing, and we only fill our shelves with boss lady authors that pair perfectly with our lady made wines.

ABOUT SOLMINER: Sol-miner as in mining the "Sun" which in turn nourishes the soul. The name inspires us to discover and unearth the treasures in the soils of the California Central Coast. Our decisions have always been personal (not commercial) and involve what we call "conscious farming". As we learn about our little piece of earth and our place in it, the picture begins to widen. We have a feeling of connectedness as each trip around the sun gives us the chance to experience the magical process of exchange from the dirt, plants, fruit, wine, humans, sky, moon, sun and stars.
