Leave the Cannoli, Save the Rosé
February showers bring March flowers may not be the phrase that gets remembered, but we're in a spring kind of mood regardless, and nothing quite matches spring like Rosé.
Some time ago, Rosé was the Smirnoff Ice of the United States wine world. In copious supply, mostly flavorless except for the overwhelming sweet finish. The rest of the world has been making great Rosé for a very long time, and now Provence might as well be synonymous with the high quality Rosé everybody craves today. We're broadening our palates and including two Rosés from outside that part of France--one from the Loire Valley, and the other from Bourgogne. What better way to explore the variety Rosé has to offer than to taste the differences?
We'll also be featuring L'Amuse Brabander Goat Gouda, a 9 month aged wonder out of Holland, and Flory's Truckle, a cloth-bound cheddar that tastes like fresh apples on a midwestern fall evening while the sun starts to fade.... but not before rounding it out with a little Speck from our friends at La Quercia, home to the best producers of American prosciutto (Speck is the smoked version). Swing by from 5-7 tonight!
