Why Every Lifestyle Influencer Is Drinking Fleurs de Prairie Rosé
The sun to shining, the wildflowers are blooming, and the rosé is flowing. But more importantly, women are coming together to flourish. That’s why celebrating the official launch for the Fleurs de Prairie Rosé Seeds of Beauty campaign was such an honor.
We sipped on the chilled rosé, nibbled on yummy bites, created colorful flower crowns, and learned more how they are empowering inspirational women to unite for a common cause of spreading their creativity, businesses, and passions.

WHY WE LOVE THE WINE
“Fleurs de Prairie” translates as “wildflowers,” celebrating the beautiful fields of wisteria, lavender, poppy, and sunflowers carpeting Provence. The wine is sourced from select Provençal vineyards that dot the coastal wind-swept hillsides of the region. The Mediterranean combination of sun, wind, mild water stress, and ocean influence provide ideal conditions for grapes to ripen to the perfect balance of flavor and freshness.

Provence produced beautiful 2018 rosés due to the year’s generally mild spring and sunny, dry summer. The continuing drought impacted yields across the board, but quality remained high.
Crafted in the traditional Provençal style, Fleurs de Prairie is a pale salmon color with delicate flavors of strawberry, rose petals, and herbs. Its bright, refreshing acidity makes it a perfect companion with a meal or as an aperitif.
The grapes were picked at the peak of ripeness during the early morning hours to preserve maximum fruit expression. The fruit was then immediately crushed and sent to tank to chill prior to yeast inoculation. The wines were fermented slowly over 2 weeks at around 55˚F. Throughout the winemaking process the wines were kept in a near zero oxygen environment to preserve the color and intense fruit aromas.
