Wander + Ivy Rosé is the cool, bright drink we sip all summer long

The real ones know that rosé is a seasonal independent wine, but there’s no doubt that the pink drink thrives in warmer temperatures. Maybe it’s the cheerful hue, a hue almost exact with the summer sky at sunset. Perhaps it’s the taste, a harmonious balance between fruit, flowers and minerality that naturally complements the season’s star foods – raw vegetables, watermelon, cold oysters, concession fries – and which only improves with age. fresh air. Clearly, we’re obsessed with rosé here. And our obsession was only reinvigorated when we discovered Wander + Ivy’s Single Serve Rosé, presenting us with a new, improved and more efficient way to enjoy our favorite drink this season (and beyond).

Fast facts:

  • Region: Languedoc, France
  • Grape variety: 54% merlot, 41% cabernet sauvignon, 7% pinot noir
  • ABV: 12.5%
  • Goes best with: Seafood, cheeses, spicy dishes


Wander + Ivy’s single serve rosé comes from an organic vineyard in Languedoc, a region in southern France nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees that is famous for its organic wines – and in particular their rosés. The vineyard has been family owned for over 14 generations, and is now run by a young woman who learned the trade from her parents and grandparents.

To the taste, the rosé is dry, sweet and distinctly floral, with notes of rose petals, berries and stone fruits. The brand recommends pairing it with seafood, white-rind cheeses and spicy dishes, but there are few summer dishes that this crisp, refreshing, yet relatively full-bodied rosé wouldn’t do. complement well – be it leafy, herbal salads, lemon pasta, hummus and pita bread, or fruit desserts. That said, it works wonderfully on its own, even more so when half sipped on a beach towel all summer long.

The backstory

Wander + Ivy Founder and CEO Dana Spaulding started the company after spending countless evenings watching her husband, a whiskey drinker, sip one glass at a time, screw the cap back on the bottle, and sit back. rest knowing that this bottle would survive another few decades. Meanwhile, Spaulding, a Level 2 certified wine drinker and sommelier, was often forced to spill the rest of the bottle after she enjoyed just one drink. A parody.

The solution was Wander + Ivy, which pays the same attention to the wine drinking experience as it does to the quality of the wine itself. The company sources its wines from award-winning family vineyards in France, Spain, California and Italy – all of which are made with organic grapes that are pesticide-free, CCOF-certified and naturally low in sulfites – and they are packaged in graceful glass bottles measuring 6.3 fluid ounces each, or a generous single glass.

The bottles are slim and squeezable – ideal for summer trips or beach getaways – and come with an airtight seal to keep wine fresh and prevent leaks.
