Ready for summertime wine drinking? Ready to enjoy the light, crisp and flavorful wine perfect for an afternoon or evening? Ready to discover (more about) rose wine?
I am. And I am looking forward to sharing it all with you.
Perfect for poolside gatherings, adventures on the water while boating, the classic outside barbeque, time on the terrace taking in the view, or just poor a glass for on the front porch with a book, rose is a summertime staple. Let’s explore the tastes of rose wine together Join me for second stay luxurious wine journey of 2023, - the wonderful world of rose.
What is Rosé Wine?
What amazes me about Rose wine, is the variety of grapes used to make it and the multitude of colors available. The wine making process typically has the “wine” touch the grape skins as part of a shortened maceration process to create the desired pinkish hue to the wine. But there are other methods to discuss along with the multitude of grapes used, the styles appearing across the globe (old world vs new world), the expected tasting notes and more. Much more.
Rose wine is one of the oldest styles of wines in the world and recently regained popularity thanks to social media influence along with its favorable price point too. But what also makes it enjoyable is the opportunity to pair with food, so believe it pairs with nearly everything. And we will explore many tastes in our tasting on June 24th as we always do in our stay luxurious wine tasting events.
The Selected Rosé Wines
We decided to travel the globe both old world and new world wine destinations as we visit five continents and six countries. We will explore bubbly, single grape varieties along with classic blends. We will even sample a double gold award winning non-alcoholic rose too.
The bottles outlined are available through wine.com and also Joyus (for the single non-alcoholic bottle), but as always you can find selections from your local wine store too. I’d suggest you locate bottles similar to the region for our joint discussion. Perhaps you have a favorite from Cotes de Provence? Or maybe it is a challenge to gain access to many choices for South African rose? Find what you can, and remember as always you do not need all 6 bottles or the exact bottles to join, you can sign up with a few and learn from all of us together too.
