We made the 2021 Rosé with a direct press fruit that was placed on top of an equal amount of fruit and allowed to soak and slowly ferment for several days. This was then pressed and transferred to neutral barrels. As we have always done, the 2021 Laughing Pig Rosé was fermented to dryness with malolactic complete and bottled unfiltered.
This rosé starts off with an almost tropical nose giving way to the undercurrents dried of rose petals and
orange cordial. Your first sip greets you with sweet ripe strawberries but then the tart cherry and bright
acidity makes your mouth beg for another sip. The finish is gives a little spice while balanced with a rich
mouth feel. This is a dry and complex rosé that compliments lots of food and is a beautifully and balanced wine!
Big Table Farm is the collaborative effort of Brian Marcy and Clare Carver
- we are a winemaker and an artist, we grow and produce what we love to eat and drink -
In 2006 we moved to Oregon from Napa, where Brian had been making wine for ten years. We started
with a dream and made our first 150 cases in 2006.
We own and manage 70 acres in the northern Willamette Valley, where we raise animals and produce
seasonal vegetables. If you visit us, you'll find free-range hens, pasture-raised pigs and grass-fed cows.
We are building a managed intensive grazing system of farming that builds our soil, sequesters carbon,
and moves us towards a healthy, sustainable and diverse farm.
The art on our labels is drawn by Clare and is unique to each vintage. The labels themselves are made by hand using a letterpress and thick printmaking paper. After each label is applied by hand we carefully
wrap each bottle in tissue to preserve the letterpress paper's texture and beauty. There is a product code on the bottom of each bottle so you don’t have to unwrap them to identify the wines.
