Roses have been around a long time.  Lately dry roses have become very popular.  When I was growing up in Nebraska sweet roses were popular and that was before the white zin craze.

 

There are two ways to produce a rose, the first is to blend white wine with a little red, the second and more elegant technique is to use red grapes only and pull the skins off before they impart much color, flavor and tannins. 

 

Roses are wonderful with food and as a cool refresher on a warm day.

 

Our wines this week are made from a variety of grapes.

 

Price is $20.  Please call or see the front desk to place reservations.  802 253-5742.  Doors open @ 4:00.  I suggest you arrive no later than 5:00 to avoid feeling rushed.  People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. We end at 6:00
