What an explosion of Rosé this summer – cool, pretty and perfect for long hot summers. But are these 50 shades of Pink all the same?
Did you know Rosé is the world’s most popular wine? After the master class in the Catering Kitchen a special summery High Tea will celebrate its diverse deliciousness, and almost fool-proof pairing with food. Because this is both fun and special, the venue will be Ruth’s own beautiful home Springfield, with its sweeping gardens and terraces.
Guest speaker, EuroVintage wine expert Brett Newell, says “Rosé has a proud and romantic history, and New Zealand is enthusiastically enjoying its current popularity. Tasting Rosé wines from four countries, with different styles, grapes and techniques, we will explore just how much Rosé has to offer, especially as we have been enjoying such a superb summer.”
Ruth says that Rosé is “ultra-fashionable at the moment, maybe because many people believe it’s low alcohol”. Naturally, she will prepare delightful dishes for you to match with the wines and make for your friends later. She laughs that people of a certain age may well remember Mateus Rosé, with the empty bottles often used for lamp bases.
You will love this slightly serious look at a slightly frivolous wine – what a great combination.
