Dawn’s Dream

Dawn’s Dream.

Dawn’s Dream is an elegant rosé made of Pinot Noir. While the label may entice you to spoil yourself by taking an indulgent bubble bath with a glass of dreamy wine, the true message is all about giving back.

On the back of the label, “Dreams are the touchstones of our character” is written. A quote from Henry David Thoreau, and a quote Dawn lives by.

Giving back.

Dawn Galante, Proprietor and COO of Dawn’s Dream Winery, has combined her dream of creating a wine of beautiful, exceptional quality, all while helping support others.

Every time we swipe a credit card, a small percentage of that sale is automatically donated to Rising International, a local non-profit that supports women locally and globally to rise out of extreme poverty.” ~Dawn’s Dream Winery

Dawn’s Dream 2017 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir Rosé ($38) is clear, coppery peach in the glass. Subtle stone fruit, some melon and unripe strawberry, all come together with nice acidity (without being “tart”). I liked the round, medium-bodied mouthfeel and overall mellow balance. Truly a pretty wine.

Voted “Best Rosé of Monterey County” four years in a row!

Let’s all support Dawn and her dream. Giving back and getting to enjoy quality wine is priceless (*I mean, not literally… it will set you back $38). However, the feel-good emotions you’ll receive from enjoying the wine and knowing it is supporting worthwhile charities are, in fact, priceless!

The slender shape of the bottle, as well as being capsule-free, not only looks elegant, it is more eco-friendly and saves on packaging costs!

I write about wine as well as the unique stories behind each label. I'm a R.D.H. with an applied science degree in dental hygiene, and have been geeking out about wine for over 20 years. Before obtaining a Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) certification, I learned about wine just by trying different styles and regions. I've also worked with a local distributor in wine sales. Wine brings people together and makes the world a smaller, friendlier place... Cheers!
