Spring is in full bloom, and so is Whole Foods Market’s Rosé Garden – the company’s latest collection of high-quality rosé wines. Not to be confused with your mom’s white zinfandel, the Rosé Garden wines represent a variety of vintners from all over the world, including custom, local and imported brands. These wines are available for a limited time through June 2013 at Whole Foods Market’s Southern California locations.

“With our Rosé Garden selection, we’re branching out as one of the first retailers to highlight a collection of high-quality rosés. We’ve sought out some the of the world’s best pink varietals to help open our guests’ taste buds to trying new twists on a well-loved classic,” said Claude Ruau-Choate, specialty coordinator, Whole Foods Market Southern Pacific region. “We invite our shoppers to uncork a different brand, taste a new blend and take advantage of this collection available just for the next few months.”

New to Whole Foods Market’s Rosé Garden are two Southern California wines — from Ampelos Cellars and Hartley-Ostini Hitching Post vineyards — part of the company’s “One Wine” collection. Nestled in the heart of the Central Coast of California, these two local vineyards are hidden treasures, offering a distinct climate, geography and soil that brings forth flavors unlike any other.
