Pearmund Cellars Cameo Collection Rose
Pearmund Cellars
United States - Virginia

In 2019, Chris Pearmund worked with sixteen Virginia wineries to create a blended wine with grapes from each participating vineyard to commemorate the 400th Anniversary of Winemaking in Virginia. A portion of the wine’s proceeds were donated to museums and events that would contribute to tourism in the Commonwealth and foster a broader understanding of Virginia’s cultures and cuisines. This idea sparked another movement to celebrate through wine, and Cameo seemed a perfect way to commemorate the milestone moment in history.

Cameo Wine Collection was created to highlight women in Virginia, and the memorable events that have unfolded in the Commonwealth that lead to the movement to secure women’s right to vote. Raise a glass and toast the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Cameo Rosé honors 12 of Virginia’s most influential women. Each bottle has a label depicting one of the chosen women, who’s contributions range from historic, business, entertainment, politics, and wine. The story of the suffrage movement in Virginia is an important part of the collective history. A variety of cultures and eras have been curated to share recollections of the fearless, passionate ways each woman lived so that a case of wine will contain twelve different individuals to celebrate. Women like Martha Washington, Pearl Bailey, and Ella Fitzgerald.

Cameo Rosé offers aromas of raspberry, strawberry, and peach. Dry on the palate, silky tannins and minerality are balanced by strawberry and orange zest flavors.

Wine Type
mostly Chambourcin with the balance being Merlot and Petit Manseng.

wplogo"Winemaker Chris Pearmund created this rosé to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment that granted women the right to vote. Each bottle has a label honoring one of 12 influential women from Virginia’s history. My bottle featured Ella Fitzgerald, who was born in Newport News; others include Pearl Bailey, Martha Washington, Pocahontas and the Pamunkey tribal leader, Cockacoeskie. Pearmund recruited 16 Virginia wineries to contribute to the blend of chambourcin, merlot and petit manseng. It’s a vibrant pink wine with juicy red fruit flavors and an off-dry finish, in a very elegant bottle. ABV: 12 percent."
