La Nuit en Rosé Tasting: June 13-14, New York City

I consider it a fact, and a welcome one, that we have reached a point in American wine culture where pink wines, and the people that willingly drink them are no longer stigmatized. No longer do most men find their masculinity threatened by a nice glass of rosé, nor do most people assume that if you're drinking something pink, it must be white la-nuit-en-rose-logo-website.pngZinfandel.

Quite the opposite, in fact. Rosé consumption in this country has been skyrocketing, with sales growing in the double digits every year for the past five or six years. Ironically, while much of the acceptance for pink wines has come through the efforts of American advocates, most of the good rosé being sold on these shores comes from elsewhere.

But no matter. People have discovered the joys of pale pink wine, and that is most important, especially as we head into warmer weather.

Which brings us to an event called La Nuit en Rosé, which sounds pretty much like the best think to happen on the Hudson River in quite some time.

On June 13th and 14th, a swanky ship will be departing for a four hour cruise past the stunning Manhattan skyline. On board will be 85 different rosés, oysters, appetizers, pastries, live music, and beautiful people.

What's not to love?

Sixty bucks gets you onto the hottest party in June in New York. If I was anywhere close, this would definitely be how I'd spend that weekend. You can learn more about the event online.

La Nuit en Rosé 2014
7:00 PM to 11:00 PM, June 13th and 14th
