Big Table Farm "Laughing Pig" Rose 2020
We made the 2020 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 2020 Laughing Pig Rosé was fermented to dryness with malolactic complete and bottled unfiltered.
tasting notes - This wine offers up aromatics of strawberries, raspberries, orange peel and chamomile tea. Your first sip shows a little tart cherry and sweet ripe strawberries and the texture of this wine pulls you into the finish of orange pith and a little spice all balanced with a rich mouth feel. This is a dry and complex rosé that complements lots of different food.

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.
