Sagaponack visitor Drew Barrymore introduced a new variety from Barrymore by Carmel Road, her California-based wine company, to New York merchants last week. Over lunch at the Wayfarer, Barrymore shared the 2015 Barrymore by Carmel Road Rosé of Pinot Noir.
On the Barrymore by Carmel Road website, Barrymore writes, “I am passionate about wine. There is so much to discover and experience and my travels help me do that. Barrymore Pinot Grigio is made from Monterey grown grapes which is adjacent to the beautiful Blue Grand Canyon section of the Pacific ocean where extreme winds and deep, cold water create the perfect mix of fog and cool temperatures, ideal for growing the perfect grape. Please enjoy this varietal around the table, a place where I feel some of the best memories are made.”
Other wines offered by Barrymore by Carmel include pinot noir, chardonnay and riesling.
