Rain or shine there’s no better way to spend a long summer day than with a deck of cards, a group of friends and a great bottle of wine. And the custom Malene-themed playing cards in this month’s shipment will keep the competition lively, whether it’s a friendly game of Spoons or a strategic hand of Hearts. For fun try a new game this summer – rules are easy to find online Some of our favorite? Golf, I Doubt It, Crazy Eights, Fan Tan and Gin Rummy.

Malene has a little sister! She’s a 19-foot vintage Airstream travel trailer and she’s already made tracks up and down the East Coast. Now she’s back home on the Central Coast where she’ll be moving, shaking and bringing the Malene Scene wherever she goes. Keep an eye out for the newest member of the Malene family and where she just might be poppin’ up next!

upcoming events

August is a busy month at the Malene Scene and we don’t want you to miss the fun. The rosé will be flowing on the 17th of August when we host our Release Party with plenty of wine, food and fun on tap. On Friday, August 30th, we’ll kick off Labor Day weekend with a movie night on Flamingo Field adjacent to the Malene Scene. Featured flick: the 1980s classic Pretty in Pink starring Molly Ringwald paired with Malene rosé, of course! We also have events lined up this fall and winter, so keep a watchful eye on your email for updates.

Perfect Pairings

Perfect Pairings

Labor Day is around the corner and you know what that means… red wine + BBQ! Our 2017 Grenache Noir will pair perfectly with all the BBQ essentials; we plan on serving up smokin’ sweet chicken wings with a cherry barbeque glaze alongside a watermelon salad with mint, feta and lime.

If fish is more your speed, let’s talk Rolle. This varietal is incredibly versatile and a brilliant wine pairing for anything from the sea, whether it's flavored with herbs or citrus, grilled or raw. How does grilled shrimp tacos or tuna ceviche sound? We’d say you should ‘rolle’ with one of these options for a gathering with our featured white wine.

Let’s toast to summer and share our newest vintage of Grenache Noir and Rolle with our loved ones.

2018 rolle

Rolle is a traditional component of classic Rosé and one of our favorite varietals when bottled on its own. Our 2018 Malene Rolle possesses layers of exuberant fruit, a full-bodied texture and a viscous palate that is rich and long lasting. Pale straw in color, this wine opens with aromas of lemon peel and fresh apricot, leading into hints of Bosc pear. The palate is bright and mouthwatering, with flavors of green apple and lemon cream leading to a long, stony finish.

This wine will pair well with cuisine ranging from salad niçoise to grilled chicken and can be aged for up to two years.

Malene Rosé

2018 Malene Rosé

Sourced primarily from the Santa Ynez Valley, the 2018 Malene Rosé comprises five varietals for a wine that is mouth-filling yet crisp, dry and complex. Grenache supplies the backbone with copious melon and strawberry notes and a delicious creamy texture. Vermentino lifts the wine’s fragrance with notes of white flowers and lychee. The Cinsault is exuberant, fruity and fresh, while the Mourvedre imparts a savory, slightly herbaceous character. Syrah fleshes out the texture and lengthens the palate.

With plenty of fruit and a long acid-driven finish, this wine pairs well with cuisine ranging from fresh oysters to pasta puttanesca.

Malene Grenache Noir

2017 Grenache Noir

Grenache Noir is a traditional component of classic Rosé and one of our favorite varietals when bottled on its own. Our 2017 Grenache Noir displays the exuberant black fruit flavors and rich, spice characteristics typically found in Grenache from cool coastal climates. The aromas are bright and bursting with notes of macerated strawberry, sun-warmed raspberry and white pepper. On the palate, the wine is juicy and fresh with a light dusting of tannins and bright acidity that make it effortlessly food friendly.

This wine pairs well with cuisine ranging from ratatouille to pork tenderloin and can be aged for up to five years.
