Lisa Vanderpump is bringing her love of rose to the masses.
Vanderpump Rose made its Boca Raton debut last month at Total Wine.
Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd along with daughter Pandora and son-in-law Jason Sabo met hundreds of fans at the store.
Cases of their rose flew off the shelves as fans waited in a massive line to meet the famous restaurateur and Real Housewife of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star.
One woman drove in from Tampa Bay to meet the Bravo star. The first person in line waited nearly three hours to have her bottle signed by Vanderpump.
The blend is all about paying homage to tradition Provence Rose, Pandora Vanderpump Sabo said, but with a modern twist.
She said she spent about seven years living near the French wine region of Provence and her first glass of wine was a Provence-style rose.
“We knew we wanted to launch a French rose,” she said, adding the winemaking and packaging is all done in Provence.
So, the family dove in on the project together creating a dry rose made with Cinsault, Grenache, and Syrah grapes.
The description of the wine on the wine.com is: “Elegant nose with delicate red currant and hints of pepper as well as sweet citrus. On the palate, it reveals a touch of strawberry, tangerine and peach in a dry, classic style.”
Pandora Sabo said they wanted a blend that paired well with all types of food. She described the flavor as bright, palatable and smooth.
They also wanted it to appear luxurious from the packaging, but at an affordable price point. The bottle sold at Total Wine for $19.99. The rose can also be found at the Boca Raton Resort, Louie Bossi’s and Chops Lobster Bar in Boca Raton.
She said selecting the right color of rose that wasn’t too pink or too salmony for the packaging was a labor of love.
“We are perfectionists,” she said of the family.
