Please join us Friday, July 19th, 2019 at 7:00 PM as L’Auberge Chez François presents a very special wine tasting and dinner featuring fine rosé wines from France, Spain and the United States. While wine lovers have discovered that rosé doesn’t deserve the “inexpensive and sweet” reputation it got from Lancer’s, Mateus and white zinfandel, many consider it a perfect choice as a light, refreshing glass to enjoy on a summer patio, at the beach and for all your summer dinners.
Our head sommelier, Alex Bardsley, will pour a variety of sumptuous rosés for a pre-dinner tasting as well as with the Chef’s multi course meal, commenting on their production methods, origins and styles.
Though experimentation has delivered delicious new rosés, especially from the west coast, we will be focusing on more classic styles, but ones that deserve to be better known.
Chef Jacques will craft a sumptuous repast to bring out the best in the rosé wines for our evening’s soirée-
Drink Pink this summer and see you there!
