“Rosé is probably the most unpretentious and democratic of all wines.”
— Chef Jacques Pépin
The cri de coeur of every Waterford spring and summer patio party used to be “Rose All Day!” But now the cri de coeur of any kind of party at any time of year is “Rosé Tout l’Année!” As the French saying reminds us, Rosé deserves to be served on any occasion, with food or without, whenever we want it. And while more Americans are drinking more Rosé, in France sales of Rosé now eclipse those of white wine.
At this tasting we are going to try many different styles from as many wine regions of the world as you possibly can. We want you, your friends, your lovers and everybody you know to experience how delicious, how elegant, how sexy and how straight up badass Rosé is — whether you’re in the midsummer sun on Bradford Beach or looking through your windows at midwinter drifts of snow — whether you want a light kiss of pink or a long, beguiling draft of deep blood orange.
And we haven’t even told you the best part about Rosé. The best Rosé wines — the kind we want you to drink the most of, and the kind our Rosé Festival makes a specialty of — are easily affordable on any budget. These quality Rosés receive their color from the maceration of grape skins with their grape juice. The juice of all grapes is clear, but maceration with their skins — for an hour or two or for two or three days — lends Rosés their gorgeous colors.
Come along to our Rosé tasting and see why Chef Pépin calls Rosé “unpretentious and democratic.” And see why we say good Rosé is nothing but badass. Vive la démocratie! Et vive le vin rosé tout l’année!
