Lisa Rinna Vs. Lisa Vanderpump: Whose Rosé Is Better?

Posted on

Creating a wine that captured the essence of Côtes de Provence rosé was essential in making Vanderpump Rosé, per Lisa Vanderpump (via Wine Enthusiast). The reality star shares that rosé was a part of every meal she enjoyed with her family while they lived in the region years ago. 

Capturing authenticity with a sense of place is what the French call terroir, and the historic region of Provence exudes terroir. Rocky, schist, and limestone soils give a minerality to the wine. Wild shrubs of sagebrush, lavender, rosemary, and thyme, which the French call the garrigue, give earthy herbaceous flavors to the wine. All vineyards are less than 25 miles from the Mediterranean Sea, providing a slightly salty, briny note from constant saline-filled breezes moving off the water through the vines. 

This herbal, saline, mineral character mixes with days of eternal sunny daylight, ripening the fruit. Wine-Searcher reports Provence enjoys up to 3000 hours of sunshine a year, producing fruity, refreshing, juicy wine that melds fruit with structure and balance. 

Vanderpump Rosé blends cinsault, grenache, and spicy syrah, from the interior valley of Provence, where wine grapes and the garrigue are intertwined, creating a gastronomic, food-friendly 13% ABV wine with a dry palate. Aromas of tangerine and wild berry mix with woody herbs and purple flowers, giving way to red fruits, golden apricot, and crushed pink peppercorn flavors with touches of wet stone minerality.
