Rosé – no longer your grandmother’s blush wine. Dry rose is serious stuff: it drinks like a red wine but you chill it like a white.  Is it the ultimate patio pounder?  The best boat wine?  Is it the gateway to delicious hedonism for those of us who usually drink only red?  Yes, it is all of these things and so much more.

Yes, it’s crazy to think about warm weather and sunshine in these crazy, snowy days of April.  But as sure as tax season just got done with, Rosé season will begin.  And along with it, summer.  At this festival we will be exploring over 40 different wines – many of them Rosé, but also lots of white wines ranging from crisp and aromatic to dry and full-bodied.  Finally, there are summer reds – juicy, vibrant and exciting, also perfect for the patio.

Whatever your tastes, here is a festival guaranteed to not only bring on summer, but see you drinking well the whole way through!
