A Fashionable Swirl at Old Edwards Inn

Sommelier Nick Demos

Old Edwards Inn and Spa will once again host its Release the Rosé Wine Dinner at The Farm at Old Edwards on Friday, April 14. It’s an evening of food, live music, wine, and camaraderie.

Rosé is one of the most fashionable swirls to top a stem in today’s wine world, even for men.  Rosés have sashayed up to the proverbial plate, not only in popularity but in quality as well.  Shedding the misperception that all rosés are sweet, and sporting a palate-pleasing acidity, today’s French-style versions are flavorful, complex, even crisp and dry; and their sales are growing 10 times faster than overall table wines.

In April, just in time for the spring releases, Old Edwards is pairing these stylish sips with the culinary imaginings of Madison’s chefs.  Live music, rustic ambiance, and fun camaraderie will make for another magical evening at The Farm. It is the perfect time to get your #rosévibes on in time for the spring season.

Sommelier Nick Demos will be present to discuss the different pairings and educate diners on the joys of rosés.  Nick, a native of Western North Carolina, has been immersed in wine culture since an early age.  His grandfather opened the very first wine shop in downtown Asheville, North Carolina, just after Prohibition. 

In July of 2016, Mr. Demos passed the ever-challenging Advanced Sommelier Exam through the Court of Master Sommeliers.  He is currently pursuing his studies as a candidate for the Master Sommelier Diploma.  His natural inclination for hospitality and his passion for the art of wine guarantee a sparkling evening.

Let’s not forget about the culinary part of the evening.  Executive Chef Chris Huerta and his team have created five fresh and innovative dishes, each course paired perfectly with a different rosé. The cost of the bubbly evening is $135 per person.
