2022 Rosé of Pinot noir
The 2022 Fairsing Rosé of Pinot noir exhibits incredible depth with an ethereal backbone of acidity.
Substantial and serious, this wine is poised for pairing with your favorite spring time appetizers and grilled favorites.
On the nose, blissful notes of orchard floral, grapefruit zest, mint leaf, and juicy watermelon waft from the glass.
Impressively plush with silky summer flavors of strawberry and ripe peach. This wine is delightful and thirst-quenching without sacrificing elevated texture or authenticity.
Crafted from 100% Pinot noir, this charming and classic expression remains true to grape and place. 
A perennial tasting room favorite, each vintage of our Rosé of Pinot noir disappears quickly. Don't miss this bottling from a standout vintage.
The 2022 growing season included many ups, downs, and the surprises Mother Nature always provides. The Willamette Valley experienced an unexpected frost and snow event on April 11. Thankfully, our vines were not at the budbreak stage and endured minimal tissue damage. The following two weeks were unusually cool, which further delayed budbreak and grapevine growth.
May and June continued to be cool and wet. Fairsing reached 90 degrees in late June and that was a turning point from cool and wet weather to hot and dry.
We experienced bloom in early July and the summer progressed with warm, dry conditions. The late growing season resulted in ideal conditions for final fruit development with cool days and longer nights. 
We harvested select Pinot noir blocks for our Rosé of Pinot noir October 3 with glorious weather and high yields.
This combination of Dijon 777 and Pommard selections macerated on the skins for four hours and was allowed to settle for an additional 48 hours.
The juice was transferred to neutral French oak barrels for fermentation to an alcohol of 12.9% before bottling March 2, 2023.

Fairsing Vineyard is a certified member of the Low Input Viticulture and Enology (LIVE) Association, the Salmon Safe program and the American Tree Farm System. No pesticides or persistent herbicides are utilized on our 170 acre site.

A veteran of the wine industry since the early 1970’s, Robert Brittan began his wine career in the Central Valley of California. 

Robert attended the University of California at Davis, graduating with a degree in Fermentation Science in 1981. While in California, Robert crafted wines for Far Niente Winery, St. Andrews Vineyard and Stags’ Leap Winery. After a 16 year career with Stags’ Leap Winery as Winemaker and Estate Manager, Robert and wife Ellen Brittan headed north to fulfill a dream of making Pinot noir and Syrah from unique sites in a cooler climate.

Since moving to Oregon, Robert manages his own vineyard and crafts wines for Brittan Vineyards  while serving as consulting winemaker for select vineyards in the Northern Willamette Valley.

A firm believer that wines are much more compelling as they age, Robert is committed to a minimalist winemaking style and partners with exceptional vineyard sites to craft wines that cellar beautifully.

Since 2012, Robert and his team have been crafting wines for Fairsing that are distinctive to the property. Robert’s enthusiasm for the varied exposures, geology, micro-climates, and selections across Fairsing Vineyard is reflected in his site-expressive wines.
