Charles & Charles

THE PROJECT: A collaboration founded in 2008 between Food & Wine Magazine 2009 Winemaker of the year, Charles Smith (K Vintners, Charles Smith Wines) and Charles Bieler (Bieler Pere et Fils). The label is an abstract play on the American Flag done by the well loved and historic Nashville, TN poster shop, Hatch Show Print.

Charles Bieler and Charles Smith have teamed up on a delicious offering. Their collaboration--aptly named Charles and Charles--has yielded a single vineyard dry rosé and a red blend from the Wahluke Slope of Washington State.

Bieler has been making rosé in Provence, France with his family since 1992 and was one of the early champions of the category in the US. "In the late 90's it was only top tier shops that would carry any rosé at all," says Bieler, "and it took serious explanation to convince people that in fact not all pink wine was sweet. Now, every good restaurant and retailer loads up on at least a few for the warmer months. We've come a long way, baby."
