Peter’s winemaking style is to produce wines that are full-flavored and somewhat approachable upon release.
Winemaking at Sineann is well recognized as meticulous. All fruit is hand sorted, delicately destemmed, punched down by hand, gently pressed and gravity racked. The wines are aged in new and one year old French oak.
Sineann owner and winemaker Rosback was bitten by the urge to produce wine in the mid 1990s. He worked harvest at Elk Cove and other wineries, and decided to start his own winery after meeting fellow winelover David O'Reilly (Owen Roe). With Irish heritage and love of good wine in common, the two men struck a partnership and created Sineann.
"David has a great palate and is one of the best marketing people in the state," Rosback said. "We're a good team. Each of us brings talents to the table to produce the best wine we can. Of course, it starts with great fruit, and that also has to be the best we can get."
