Contributor blog post by David Scott Allen for Provence WineZine:
There I was, minding my own business, sipping a Provence rosé at Revel (wine bar) in Tucson with friends celebrating their engagement. I chose the rosé, of course, and mentioned to server that I was a big rosé fan.

According to the winery’s website their location (and possibly wine-making style) is “off-grid.” They are also part of the Rhône Rangers vintners in the US making Rhône-style wines. For this month’s wine pairing, David matched the Arizona Rune Rosé with a Provencal style braised chicken recipe.
Rune Wines can be found according to their website “In-between mile marker 39 and 40 on the south side of HWY 82, at the crest of the hill. Look for our Rune flags and the Airstream.”
