Oysters 3 Ways with Rosé
No matter how it is served, there is one thing we suggest when it comes to oysters and that is what we drink it with! The drink of choice is Rosé all the way because frankly, it's a perfect love match. Our 2020 Rosé of Pinot Noir highlights and pairs beautifully with the uniqueness of the different flavor profiles among oysters. And of course, Hog Island Oyster Company is our oyster provider of choice!
