2021 "Cohort 1"

Rosé of Pinot Noir, 2021

Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir 

Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma, CA

Progressive Scale Weight: 3P

Pairings: Tastes great with beach days and block parties! This is a wine that plays well with food, so it will love your salad as much as it loves your burger. And don’t feel like you have to get fancy with this wine…it was built for your solo cup. 

Get ready to have your mouth water with each and every sip! That’s thanks to the beautiful acid that runs through this wine. Acid opens up the pores on your tongue and makes your mouth water for more. It also preps your taste buds for food, so this is a wine to enjoy with snacks or a meal. Although this wine is light in color, a nice touch of tannins from the Pinot Noir skins is what moves its body up the Progressive Scale. 

But enough about what we think - tell us your tasting notes! Community learning helps us all feel like wine experts! 

Some Quick Info About

PWC's Core Tenents

PWC is not made from bulk juice.

No leftover juice or "shiner bottles here - you deserve to know where your wine comes from! We've been working with this wine since it was grapes on a vine! We're choosing to work with growers like Juan Gamino, a first generation Mexican-America grower in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma. Over time, we expect our entire grape portfolio to be as intentional as our wine.

PWC is a new way to think about wine.

Learning about wine is intimidating. To make it easier, we developed the Progressive Scale - a way of categorizing wine by its body in stead of varietal or region. Our first vintage will feature lighter bodied wines, and the 2022 and 2023 vintage releases will build to more medium and full bodied styles.

PWC pays it forward.

$1 of every bottle or piece of merchandise sold goes to support learning opportunities for the Urban Grape Wine Studies Award for Students of Color participants. When you support PWC, you're not just buying wine to enjoy, you're also supporting equity and inclusion in the wine industry. Learn more about our program! Learn about our Program!

PWC is a vehicle for industry learning.

For ten weeks each year, the current cohort of Urban Grape Wine Studies Award for Students of Color interns will work a full harvest season in Sonoma to learn the ins and outs of winemaking. They will assist our winemaking team in all aspects of making PWC. The sales from their wine will allow the next season's interns to have the same experience. Each vintage is named after the cohort that helped to make it. And this is how we change the wine world - one vintage at a time!

At PWC, everyone is a wine drinker.

Progressive Wine Company is for EVERYONE. Let's face it, the wine world doesn't need another brand. What it needs is a new way to think about wine.This is the only way we'll encourage future generations to stay connected with the industry. PWC is here to build a bigger table - and set a wine glass at each place setting.
