If you haven’t been before, you simply must check out the pinkest event of the year. Pink Out, sponsored by the international and very hip RAP (Rose Avengers and Producers) is THE place to sample all the strawberry pie, pink lemonade tinged, light ruby goodness of still and sparkling dry roses.There are 45 producers in attendance this year. Get your tickets at www.rapwine.com.
It’s on Monday, May 21 from 6:30 to 8:30 at Butterfly, Pier 33 at Bay Street, The Embarcadero, San Francisco. It always sells out, there are always TV crews, pretty people, DJs and some of the best views and yummiest Pan-Pacific tapas you can get. It costs $35 and it’s well worth it.
I believe this event, which sells out in New York as well, is responsible for advancing rose’s reputation as a sophisticated, drinkable and perhaps most versatile food friendly wine. We’re clearly behind the times in the this country, as peeps in Europe and the world over down the stuff with everything from salads to seared ahi to steak.
