Summer is coming! We're prepping by hanging poolside and sipping on refreshing rosés. We're looking forward to releasing the 2019 rosé very soon. It showcases notes of pink grapefruit, Fuji apple, tangerine, and wet stone minerality that'll keep you refreshed all summer. Stay tuned...
We are excited to introduce the third vintage of our estate Falanghina, a fragrant and refreshing white wine from Italy's southern coast. Falanghina has been called an "authentic and precious gem" due to its balanced, versatile qualities and its rich history during the Roman era. Its home region of Campania is home to great cities like Naples, Pompeii, and the idyllic beaches of the Amalfi coast. Take a vacation here, and chances are you'll be sipping on Falanghina with the locals. Its affinity for the coast and laidback lifestyle make it feel like a seaside vacation in a bottle. So even at home, we can sit back, pour a glass of Falanghina, and let it take us to the shore.
2019 ESTATE FALANGHINA
VARIETAL: 100% Falanghina
PRONUNCIATION: (fa-lahn-GHEE-nah). From the Latin word 'falangae' referring to the wooden poles that support the grapes in a vineyard
BIRTHPLACE: Campania, Italy
CHARACTERISTICS: Zesty and refreshing
NOTES: Citrus blossom, apple, pear, lime
Traditional: Seafood (Tip: Pair it like an Italian and enjoy it with linguine and clams)
Modern: Thai food
As some of you may know, we've been growing Falanghina since the beginning here at Speckle Rock. The Italian varietal has proven itself to be particularly successful with our terroir here in San Diego. We have received numerous awards and appreciation for its outstanding quality, including gold and double gold medals (a gold medal vote by all panel judges) and multiple 90+ point ratings. We aim to continue this tradition of excellence and bring Falanghina to life here in California.
Stay tuned for our next entry, ‘Pairings: Falanghina’.
As we continue to receive your orders, we'd like to give a big thank you to all of you for your continued support! We've decided to extend our free shipping within California for orders of 3+ bottles until Sunday, May 31st. Simply use code ENJOYATHOME at checkout. We look forward to enjoying a glass of chilled Falanghina with you in the tasting room soon. In the meantime, we hope we can help you enjoy these wines at home. Stay safe and be well.
P.S. Don't forget about mom! Mother's Day is Sunday, May 10th. Check out our handpicked mom-approved wines that she'll love here. Place your order by Tuesday, May 5th to get your order in time.
We are spending our weekend tasting through different sugar levels for our next sparkling wine. It will be exciting to see how this one matures and turns out...
We hope everyone is having a relaxing and happy weekend. Looking forward to cheers-ing you all soon 🥂

Rosé is a fun wine to pair since it goes with almost anything! Not to mention it’s appropriate for brunch, lunch and dinner. Our Provence style rosé is dry and pairs perfectly with light dishes such as salads, fruit, seafood (especially tuna and salmon), shellfish, crudités and more. Here’s a list of some of our favorites you can make at home.
