Dear Readers—

2023 “The Seated Rose” California Rosé 

(Proceeds benefit the Mark Twain Library)

This is a custom bottling produced exclusively for Ancona’s wines in collaboration with a second-generation family-owned winery located in Geyserville (Sonoma County, California). 

At some point in 2022, Mitch came to me and asked if I knew of a producer that could and would bottle a killer California rosé that we could sell for $20. The answer was almost obvious. These guys. 

Without saying who made the wine—I’ve been asked to keep that under my hat—let me say, this is a producer that Ancona’s has worked with year in and year out at least since I started working here in 2011. Their vineyard holdings are loaded with really old vines and they specialize in extended barrel aging without too much influence of wood which instills them with a little old world sensibility and finesse. And custom bottling aside, their rosé might be my favorite wine they make. 

The Library

When Mark Twain set up the library in Redding in 1910, it was his humble request that it operated without the aid of municipal funding because it was the government that had banned and censored his books. Mr. Twain contributed over 200 of his own books and was instrumental in raising money to construct the original building which still houses the original books and continues to serve as the library’s meeting room to this day.  Pretty cool. 

This project is Mitch's and Ancona's small way of doing our part to support the library which we consider a valuable asset to the community.

"I love libraries" I've heard Mitch say more than once. 

The Artwork: 

The sketch on the front label was made by Redding resident James Grashow. James was born in Brooklyn and has produced a prolific body of work ranging from environmental pieces to sculpture, wood cuts, and especially featuring fish, primates, and botanicals. 

His works have been displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum, Library of Congress, and of course, the Aldrich Museum here in Ridgefield. 

Our friends at the Mark Twain Library helped coordinate this work for the collaboration and we’re really happy with the way it came out. 

This rose uses fruit from vines that are over 100 years old.

50% Syrah, 50% Grenache. 

It was aged in neutral oak barrels for 3 months. 

Just over 100 cases made.

Have a happy Memorial Day weekend.

Codey Foster, Wine Director 


My notes read: Fresh outta Geyserville, The Seated Rose is already firing on all cylinders. On the nose: quince, tangerine, sea salt, peach skin, fresh cream, and yellow raspberries. On the palate: bright acid supports just the right amount of unctuousness brought on by crunchy fresh stone fruit, another hit of sea salt, fresh herbs, and stony mineral—all which crescendos in a lengthy finish that I can’t help but notice as I write this. I love this. You’re going to love this. 13.5%

2022 l'Armangia "Victrola Rosso" Barbera d'Asti (750ml)


An Ancona's Project Wine For Charity 

This year we've created an absolutely stunning Italian red to help generate funds for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute via the Pan Mass Challenge.

This wine was made in loving memory of our dear friend Alan who passed away late last year from cancer. Alan loved Italian wine--especially the red wines of Piedmont.

"Custom made by Agricole l'Armangia in loving memory of our good friend Alan..Wild raspberry, strawberry, fresh herbs, tomato leaf, and whispers of dry dusty earth, white mushrooms, truffles, and black tea harmonize. The tannin here is mild and smooth though the finish is lengthy, clingy, and pure."
