June 11 - National Drink Rosé Day!

Some consider this blush wine to be the official drink of summer, and we are hard-pressed to disagree with them. On Saturday, June 11, 2022 we are celebrating all things rosé at The Brewster Inn. We will be debuting a special menu featuring our rosé cocktail of the night along with featured bottle specials.

There is nothing more perfect than sitting by the water with a pink wine enjoying a pink sunset on Cazenovia Lake in the summer time.

To prep for this big day, please enjoy the following mix of interesting rosé facts from Celebrations at Home.

  1. It was the first wine created, about 7000 BC. Red and white wines came a few thousand years later.

  2. Rosé gets it’s pink color from the fact that the skin is left to sit in contact with the crushed grape for a while. The longer it sits, the darker the pink color will be. The skin is removed after a few hours or up to 3 days.

  3. Rosé wine is not meant to be “aged.” It’s best consumed within 2-3 years of it’s release.

  4. The Provence region of France is considered to be the most consistent for creating high quality Rosé at any price point. When in doubt, choose one from this region.

  5. In France it’s called Rosé, in Italy they’re called Rosato, and in Spain it’s Rosado.

  6. Don’t confuse Rosé with Blush. Blush wines are semi-sweet, while Rosé is dry.

  7. Rosé is made from red grape varieties, but fermented like white wine, and it’s best served chilled, like other white wine {50-60 degrees F}.
