Rosé is more than just a shade of wine between red and white, it is more of a state of mind!

Rosé happens when the skins of red grapes are in contact with the wine for a short period of time. Whereas reds spend weeks fermenting on the skins, rosé wines are in contact for just hours for the perfect pink! The winemaker has complete control over the color of the wine and this also means that there are as many colors of rosé as one can imagine. Plus, nearly any red wine grape (from Bobal and Cabernet Sauvignon to Syrah and Xinomavro) can be used in its production, however there are several common styles and grapes that are commonly found in our Shop and elsewhere. Come out to the Rose Around the New World class and learn about:

  • the primary flavors of rosé wine;
  • the three primary ways that rosé wine is made;
  • the common grapes and styles;
  • and, some of the New World regions that make awesome rosé.

Plus, during the class, you will taste the following wines:

  • Old Westminster Farmer Fizz Rose
  • Alma Negra Brut Nature Rose
  • Margerum Riveria Rose
  • Kir-Tiannia Xinomavro Rose
  • Solms Delta Rose

(Please note, the lineup of wines is subject to change.)
