REVEALING ROSÉ on 7/9/18 at the Wine School at l’Alliance Française

It’s time for me to start teaching again. What better way to get back into it than a summer Rosé class? So …

Please join Spec’s fine wine buyer Bear Dalton on Monday, July 9th at 7pm for Revealing Rosé. We’ll beat the heat as we dig into dry Rosé with look at sixteen refreshing 2017 vintage Rosé wines from all over France from Bordeaux to the Languedoc to Provence to the Rhone to Sancerre as well as wines from Spain and California representing the range of styles from “Beach” to “Food Friendly.” We’ll talk about the grapes, the places they’re grown, how they’re made, and the foods we eat with them. Bread and a selection of fine cheeses will accompany the tasting.
