It seems as though warm weather is upon us early and with tomorrow it will already be June. Thankfully, we have been blessed by our suppliers in ensuring that the 2011 vintage of dry rosés have arrived early, and are ready for mass consumption.
Old favorites like Tres Ojos (Spain), Chateau L’Ermitage (France) and La Vieille Ferme (France) are back as well as new wines from places such as Oregon, Austria, and Italy. The Dollar Sale has also begun, and the Delatour Grenache rosé is back at a great price; only $6.00 per bottle when you buy two. I should also add that we still have a good supply of Tavel rosé from 2010 that are on sale and still drinking great. These wines are all perfectly dry, so don’t let the pink color fool you. I think you’ll find they perfectly compliment a lot of warm-weather picnic fare. Please ask for a recommendation next time you stop in.
