CHICAGO (PRWEB) January 10, 2018
The World Wine Championships is Tastings.com’s largest beverage review with over 3,000 wines tasted annually. This year’s review calendar will include new calls for wines from the exciting Eastern European region, trendy new Rosés, and even Wine Cocktails like delicious Mimosas and Sangrias. These are just a few fast-growing segments selected by the Tastings team for 2018. “Rosé wine has surmounted its fad status and has become the new normal here in the states. Just like Rosé's place in European culture, the category has become an American summer staple,” says Laura Kruming, Assistant Director at Tastings.com.
