how romance wines came to be

In the Spring of 2003 on a wine-sourcing trip to Argentina, we tasted barrel samples of some wonderful, deep-colored red wines from a family-owned bodega ("winery"). These were big, palate-pleasing wines with a long finish and dominant red and black fruit. The wines had not yet been fully-developed and so over many conversations and bottles of wine, we created a wine we love to drink ourselves. We brought together the passion of Argentina's beloved tango and the beauty and romance symbolised by the rose. What else to call this beauty but Romance?

Everyone needs a little Romance in their life!
