At ion, we source fruit from premium vineyards and specialize in dry Provençal style rosé wine.

Ok, let's get nerdy. If you ask science, (ion)ic bonding is a type of chemical bond that involves the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions. So basically, we're bringing people together through wine! Oh, and (ion)ic compounds are balanced, just like our rosé.

Rosé of Pinot Noir

Vineyard Overview: The vineyard is sustainably farmed, located in Lodi, CA and crops at 4 tons to the acre.

Winemaking: Slow and low. That’s the philosophy at Ion wines. The fruit was harvested at 24 brix to ensure high acid and lower alcohol. Using 100% stainless steel, our fermentation goals were a brix a day at very cold temperatures to keep the brightness and freshness of the grape. The wine rested on its lees for 4 months to help gain additional character. The 2017 vintage is 100% Pinot Noir.

Tasting Notes: On the nose it’s tropical, floral and inviting. But, notes of guava, lemon zest and lychee on the mid palate steal the show. It’s dry, muscular and the rich mineral driven acidity lends a crispness to the finish.

Rosé of Grenache

Vineyard Overview: The vineyard is sustainably farmed, located in Grass Valley, CA and crops at 4 tons to the acre. Rolling hillside on loam.

Winemaking: Slow and low. That's the philosophy at Ion wines. The fruit was harvested at 24 brix to ensure high acid and lower alcohol. We foot treaded the fruit for three hours, cold soaked for a day then pressed off the skins. Using 100% stainless steel, our fermentation goals were a brix a day at very cold temperatures to keep the brightness and freshness of the Grenache. The wine rested on its lees for 4 months to help gain additional character. The 2016 vintage is a blend of 97% Grenache and 3% Cinsault (for color at time of bottling).

Tasting Notes: The aroma of stone fruit and fig is seductive. It has notes of watermelon rind, tart pomelo fruit, and raspberry brambles. Mineral driven acidity lends a crispness to the mid palate and finish.
