Rosé Cider Wars: Crispin versus Angry Orchard

Pet peeves. We all have them. Nails on a chalkboard. Hundreds of unopened emails in your inbox. Someone replying to your text by calling you instead. They’re liable to make you go insane. Mine is food-related, of course. I can’t stand it when a brand labels their food as having some novel flavor, but it actually doesn’t. For example, champagne-flavored truffles. If I can’t detect a hint of bubbly, then I will go all-out Miranda Priestly on you… CHAMPAGNE! Where’s my champagne?! You’re not going to Paris! And don’t get me started on the Sriracha-flavored potato chips without a hint …

Rosé, Brut Rosé Ricotta Pie, Cheesecake

Brut Rosé Ricotta Pie

February has arrived. And with the first of the month, the countdown begins. How will you declare your undying love to your valentine? Will it be with roses? Will it be with chocolate? Or will it be with something infinitely more original? Say, a Brut Rosé Ricotta Pie? You’ve made the right choice, my friend. Something baked from the heart, for the heart’s desire, with an almost-full bottle of Brut Rosé to spare. It’s such a perfect scenario, that Cupid himself would shoot the hell out of it. But before we get started on the recipe, I have something I need …

Apple Rosé Cider with Barefoot Wine

Rosé is traditionally thought of as a light summer wine. And while I am all for tipping back a glass on a hot summer’s day, I am all for enjoying the libation year-round. It truly is a lovely drink to sip during every season. If you’re still a little skeptical and don’t want to shake up too many vineyard feathers, then might I suggest an Autumn themed rosé cocktail? Apple Rosé Cider featuring Barefoot Wine, to be exact! My lovely friends at Barefoot wine sent me a fabulous bottle of their Rosé and some fun instructions on how to enjoy it during …

Monaco Rosé Monté Carlo – Best of Summer

Welcome to the fourth installment of my picks for the summer’s best rosés. Today’s bottle is not for the faint of heart. It is rosé at it’s finest. And it is a bit pricier than the previous, more causal picks I have laid out in the series. But sometimes you have to betray your better judgement, scream ‘YOLO’, and just go for it. Feast your tastebuds on the Rosé de Monté Carlo.  Now I have stated in previous posts, I am not a wine expert. So if you are connoisseur of fine vintages, this is not the site for you. …

Sofia Brut Rosé

Earlier this season, I kicked off the summer with a little blog post series I like to call “What’s my favorite Rosé?” It’s a part-informative, part-self indulgent series that (thankfully) many of you have requested. Late June, I introduced you to the delectable wine by Mathilde Chapoutier and promised to post more about this season’s best rosés. I take my promises very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that I have taken it upon myself to sample as many rosés I can get my hands on. I know, it’s a tough life. So without further ado, I present to you my second …

Mathilde Chapoutier Grand Ferrage, Rosé, wine

Finding my way with Mathilde Chapoutier

Summer has officially begun and for my wine glasses that can only mean one thing… Rosé. It’s perfectly light for the sweltering weather, has a refreshingly fruity palate, and gosh-dang-it rosé is so damn pretty! With all that said, over the next few months I will be featuring some of my top picks for best summer rosés. First up: Mathilde Chapoutier’s 2016 Côtes de Provence Grand Ferrage Rosé. Whew, that was a mouthful. Let’s get to know the bottle a little better, shall we? This wine is the brain child of an eighth generation wine maker. Mathilde Chapoutier is the 24-year-old (yes, 24!) …

Rose Ginger Ricotta Delights

If I were to tell you that this is my last Christmas post for the season, what would your reaction be? I imagine there are two schools of thought among my readership. The first being sadness because you would get an I.V. drip of yuletide if it were available. The second being happiness because you are fed up with everything Santa. If you find yourself in the first camp, welcome my friend. If you are in the second camp, this is a place of peace and merriment so you should just get the hell out. Alright, now that I’ve done …
