$430.00 Included in Festival Pass
Wednesday April 5, 2017 | 3:00 pm -10:00 pm | Vail
This pass grants you entrance to the four signature events: Debut of Rosé, The American Lamb Cook-off, the Mountain Top Tasting and the Grand Tasting.
The Debut of Rosé is the chance to experience just released 2016 Rose's for first time at the Debut event. Rosé wine is the liquid component of the much celebrated lifestyle of Mediterranean France. It is just recently enjoying similar recognition in the US. Many people assume that Rose's are going to be sweet wines, most likely due to the fact that Rose' shares its same vibrant pink color with the now faded from popularity White Zinfandel. As a category, Rosé wines embrace an immense diversity of styles and flavors, especially if you include sparkling Rosés. From Semi sweet to off-dry to bone- dry (very dry), they are startling refreshing and immensely seductive. "Gulpable" if you will.
The event will have over 100 Rosé varietals to try.
