Casa Rossa is a small Corsican winery exclusively distributed by the impressive Vins Breban Chateau in Provence, France. It was founded in 1952 by Raymond Br?ban and is now run by the third generation Br?ban.

Very early on, the family realized the importance of caring for the land. This extended to how they grew their grapes as well as size of their carbon footprint - even before "carbon footprint" was a term. Chemicals are kept to an absolute minimum, and they recycle everything possible.

Besides being environmentally conscious and totally committed to quality, they also recognize great opportunities. One of these opportunities was fashioning a great sparkling wine in Provence - which was so good, in fact, they could actually compete with Champagne! Mon dieu! That used to sound like heresy, except that now they are the largest and most successful producers of sparkling wine in Provence.

But their roots (literally) and their heritage rests with the great Roses that are legendary here. Of course, that leads to incredible Rose sparkling wine as well.

Corsica is a tiny island off the French coast that is famous for its small but impressive wine industry. It also has a Ros? reputation.

Our selection is 75% Nielluccio and 25% Grenache. It exhibits all the greatness of Provence Ros?s, but with a bit more presence and power. It is distinguished by its impressive, lemon-scented finish.
