RUMOR is an elegant and drinkable rosé, bottled in Provence, but poured for the world.
We speak rosé. We believe in its power to spark magic between people. What matters to us are the moments we enrich and the company we keep.
A combination of sophistication and lightness, and a beautiful blush pink, RUMOR is an easy-drinking, high-quality rosé. It masterfully blends delicate citrus and fruit aromas with a well-rounded crisp and dry finish, perfect for celebrations, no matter how big or small, whatever the weather.
Barry Bayat had grown tired of the uninspiring rosé options that had seemingly been available for decades. As he hosted his friends and loved ones for weekly gatherings or dined out, he yearned for something new and exceptional – a rosé that would leave an indelible impression and create excitement. Determined to create the perfect blend and product, Barry left behind his finance career and set off to the vineyards of southern France in early 2019.
RUMOR is the perfect blend of true Provençal grapes.
It begins with the terroir, a series of vineyards dating back 2,000 years, chosen for their particular location, as sun, wind, and elevation provide distinct effects on the wine.
Our esteemed winemaker hand selects the varietals, curating a blend of distinctly Provençal grapes — Grenache, Cinsault, Shiraz, Tibourin, and Vermentino — to strike the perfect balance of acidity for the palate.
Rosé is a delicate wine to create, requiring a mix of art and science to create the right acidity, aroma, and taste. Once the right grapes are chosen, the journey from grape to vine is a delicate balance of timing, technicality, and attention to detail.
Our winemaker works with precision, harvesting the grapes at the perfect temperature, timing the fermentation, and processing the grapes with minimal intervention.
The result is an elegant, balanced, and drinkable rosé that’s the perfect, pale pink, and captivates your attention.
