Barry Bayat has always harbored a curiosity for wine, particularly rosé. Whether hosting weekly gatherings with friends and loved ones or dining out, he sought something new and extraordinary—a rosé that could leave a lasting impression and generate excitement. Motivated to craft the ideal blend and product, Barry transitioned from his finance career and embarked on a journey to the vineyards of southern France in early 2019.
RUMOR represents the quintessential blend of authentic Provençal grapes. It starts with the terroir—a collection of vineyards with a 2,000-year history, selected for their unique location where sun, wind, and elevation uniquely influence the wine.
Our esteemed winemaker handpicks the varietals, curating a blend of quintessentially Provençal grapes—Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Tibouren, and Vermentino—to achieve the ideal balance of acidity for the palate.
Crafting rosé is a delicate art, requiring a blend of artistry and science to perfect the acidity, aroma, and taste. After selecting the appropriate grapes, the journey from grape to wine requires a careful balance of timing, technique, and meticulous attention to detail.
Our winemaker works with utmost precision to harvest the grapes at the perfect temperature, times the fermentation, and processes the grapes with minimal interference. The outcome is an elegant, balanced, and enjoyable rosé that presents a perfect pale pink hue and captures your attention.
