At the beginning of May, I had the great fortune to travel through Alsace and the Loire Valley with K&L buyer Eric Story. Over nine days and 1657 miles we toured 21 wineries, tasted over 264 wines, and ate more foie gras and choucroute than we could have hoped for.
Many Americans I speak with about Rosé wines still perceive them as the sweet, low quality White Zinfandels that made a splash in the market during the 1980s. The truth is that many Rosé wines are dry or almost dry, and if you haven’t tried tasting some, you are missing out! Just ask the French. Many people in France love Rosé wines and drink them year round. In fact, sales have shown that the French now consume more Rosé wine than white wine.
