Hooray for Rosé
Issue: 2016/03 - March
Called rosado in Spain, rosato in Italy, and #summerwater on social media…by any other name, in the world of wine, a rosé is still one of the most fashionable ways to welcome warmer weather.
Perhaps one of the oldest wines, rosés have sashayed up to the proverbial plate, not only in popularity but in quality as well. Rosé has exploded on the US market over the past few years, especially during the spring and summer months. In France, it now eclipses the sale of white wine and sales are growing 10 times faster than overall table wines.
Rosés can be made in a sweet, off-dry or bone dry style, with most European rosés being decidedly dry. The classic pink shade can range from a soft, subtle hue to a vibrant, hot pink depending on the grape used and how long the grape skins were in contact with the juice.
On Friday, April 8, beginning at 7:00 P.M., just in time for the spring releases, Old Edwards Inn is pairing these stylish sips with the culinary imaginings of the talented chefs of Madison’s Restaurant. Rosés, known for their food-friendly versatility, make them the perfect accompaniment to the creative offerings of Madison’s. Surrounded by the rustic elegance of The Farm at Old Edwards guests will enjoy live music and the fun camaraderie that makes for a magical evening — and the perfect time to get your #roséwine vibes on in time for the spring season. Sit back, relax and let the knowledgeable staff introduce you to a wide range of rosés at this festive celebration.
Plan to attend the Rosé Wine Dinner at The Farm, Friday, April 8. Cost is $125 per person, exclusive of taxes and gratuities. Since seating is limited it is recommended that you make your reservations now by calling (828) 787-2625.
