Celebrate the spirit of Independence Day with a brand new fragrance. Bond No. 9 has released a new line of scents for their Summer ’16 collection.

If you’re not familiar with Finca Wölffer, now is the best time to give it a taste. Finca Wölffer Rosé is grown from Wölffer’s vineyard in Mendoza, Argentina. This isn’t a simple saignée rosé. It’s made with a special blend of malbec, pinot noir, syrah, and others to create the perfect acidity and depth. While Wölffer did introduce a rosé, Finca Wölffer Brau, from the Mendoza vines in 2014, this new and improved rosé was picked later (read: riper) and is true to the style of Argentinian wine. Basically, now the Wölffer folks down in Argentina know what they’re doing. Finca Wölffer won’t remain a little known wine for long, so snag a bottle at retailers around New York City and the Hamptons starting July 1. Due to a series of import snafus you won’t be able to buy it directly from Wölffer Estate, so keep an eye out, and buy it when you can. And a tip, if you’re now craving rosé: Wölffer is offering free shipping in the tri-state area on all cases of Summer in a Bottle Rosé through July 4. Visit wolffer.com to learn more.
