Summer In The Hamptons With Jesse Bongiovi Meet The Co-Founder Of Hampton W

    Past Event: Fri, August 7, 2020 (6:30 PM - 8:00 PM)

Cost: Free

This beautiful rosé unites the relaxed lifestyles of the Hamptons and the South of France. The son of legendary singer-songwriter and philanthropist Jon Bon Jovi, Jesse spent the summers of his youth vacationing with his family in East Hampton, New York. It’s a long-running joke that dry rosé wine, “pink juice”, is the “water of the Hamptons”! Jesse’s lifelong love for the summer lifestyle inspired him to create Hampton Water in his senior year at the University of Notre Dame, studying poli sci and business. First released in 2018, it’s been on the Wine Spectators top 100 list. Jon Bon Jovi calls Jesse his boss, “For me, working with my son is a joyous occasion, a smile fest!” Jesse and Jon collaborated with famed Languedoc winemaker Gérard Bertrand, committed to organic and biodynamic viticulture. Jesse describes his family’s wine as a rendition of a traditional GSM rosé, and created the blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Syrah under Bertrand’s guidance. Jesse will share his experience of falling in love with the vineyards in southern France and learning the winemaking craft. “Wine, like a good song, can bring people together!”
