Last night I attended a Rosé wine tasting with one of my girlfriends where not only did we have the best time, but I learned more about Rosé than I ever have. Like the fact that Rosé is only produced for a certain time of year and then it’s gone. They start to harvest the grapes in September, start to bottle in November and December, take pre orders for distributors starting in January and February, and then bottle are on shelves by end of March and gone by end of June. There’s a very short time frame for Rosé, so drink up!  The grapes are actually the same as Merlot and Cabernet grapes, and is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. Needless to say, my favorite ones were from France, the Provence Region.  My two favorite for the evening are pictured above and I may have come home with several bottles. I have always wanted to visit Provence and it was actually on my list for our trip this September, however I think the South of France deserves it’s own trip. Oh, one other exciting thing besides the Rosé tasting would be my new hair cut. I swore I would never cut it, but it was time for a change and I couldn’t love it more.
