Stefanija 2020 is a pale rosé with subtle wild strawberry and lime flavours, a perfect aperitif or paired with fish and seafood dishes.
Stefanija is named after Elise’s grandma, who moved to the UK in 1947 from Latvia after the war, where she met Vilnus (also Latvian) and settled in Newcastle. Bringing up three sons Ray (Elise’s dad), Ivor and Derek (Liam’s dad). We miss her very much and hope she would have been very proud of what we’ve all achieved, making wine up here.
