New York, NY (PRWEB) March 28, 2017
New York Wine Events is pleased to present its inaugural NY State of Rosé event at New York City’s Union Square Ballroom on Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 7pm to 10pm with a Premium Early Access ticket for admission at 6pm. The spring tasting will include winemakers, wineries, and select importers and distributors pouring an array of rosé wine selections from around the world.
Recognizing that the popularity of rosé wine has significantly grown in recent years, New York Wine Events has curated a diverse selection in time for spring and summer sipping. During the rosé-centric event, wine lovers can engage in personal conversations with winemakers and winery representatives while sampling dry to sweet rosés from New York state, France, Brazil, Slovenia, Italy, and more.
Rosé wine is created as the skins of red grapes touch the wine for just a brief time. While some red wines ferment for several weeks on their red grape skins, rosé wines are stained red in just hours. The winemaker has total control over the wine’s color, removing the red grape skins when the wine reaches the desired shade. Rosés also run the gamut in taste, with various wines being described as having notes of grapefruit, strawberry, raspberry, black berry, bell pepper, mint, blood orange, black currant, and more.
Participating wineries will include New York’s Bridge Lane Wine, Brotherhood Winery, Jamesport Vineyards, The Lenz Winery, Palmer Vineyards, Sannino Vineyard, and Wolffer Estate Vineyard with their rosé cider and a special Argentinian rosé. 13th & Third Wines will pour their California selection with NYC roots, Maiden + Liberty will present their French-American rosé, while Uncork Brazil will feature the country’s Miolo Wine Group and Cave Geisse Winery, plus a bonus rosé from South Africa’s DeBos Handpicked Vineyards. Laureate Imports will pour a Slovenian selection and XV Exclusives will sample rosés from France and Italy. Additional wineries and importers will be announced on NewYorkWineEvents.com as the list of participating rosés expands.
“Rosés have re-emerged as a summer selection of choice by millennial drinkers as well as other age groups who have already enjoyed the wine’s flavorful, refreshing taste throughout the years,” notes Sam Kimball, founder of New York Wine Events. “We’ve designed this boutique tasting around a sampling of top global selections as well as some amazing domestic rosés that guests can sample and chat about directly with the winemakers, for a truly personal experience.”
Light catered fare will include bread, cheese and cracker selections to accompany the wines. Additionally, New York artisanal food companies Beecher’s Handmade Cheese, Ends Meat, and Drunken Fruit will be sampling their specialties and also have full-size items on hand for guests to purchase and enjoy at home.
The event will also feature an a private industry tasting from 2pm to 5pm where sommeliers, restaurateurs, distributors, and retailers can sample the wines and discuss adding the rosés to their offerings.
