Zoom Into Wine | Top New Rosé

    Wed, August 11, 2021 (7:00 PM - 8:00 PM)

Cost: $20-$65

Join wine educator and expert Ian Blackburn for a tasting wines of THREE top rosé wines! 

Rosé season is ALL Summer long! 

One of the most refreshing and versatile wines, this category can range from bone dry to softly sweet. Serve chilled to make for the perfect Summer sipper.



Domaine de Terrebrune, Bandol Rosé, Provene, France, 2020

Domaine de Terrebrune Bandol Rose has an exotic nose dominated by pomelo, then honeysuckle and wet roses emerge, and then develops the complexity of a potpourri of flower petals. The palate is marked by the delicate structure of its bitters. Its intensely fruity flavors are enhanced by the minty and peppery side.

This racy, expressive Rosé will develop its full potential in harmony with the fresh and exotic summer cuisine, or structured and complex dishes.

 Sol Real, Vinho Verde Rosé, Vinho Verde, Portugal, 2020

This fresh, quaffable Vinho Verde irresistable! With nose of fresh strawberry and red currants leading to well-balanced flavors in the mouth, this is great on its own and complements many foods of all types, especially spicy. At 10.5% alcohol, this fresh fruity, slightly sparkly rose is the ultimate summer sipper.

Terra Nostra, Sciaccarellu Rosé Corse, Corsica, France, 2020

The rosé is nicely pink, the nose is slightly spicy with great aromas of little red berries. Crispy and fresh, the palate has a beautiful sensation of a smooth and delicate wine.

Being a wine anything wasn’t part of the original plan - and when you're raised in a military family, drinking wine may not be the first idea that comes to mind, either. Ian discovered the wine industry at the ripe age of 21 and didn't consider it a career option, but working for top chefs in the formidable dining rooms of early 1990s Los Angeles blew doors open - leading Ian to a career in wine education.

In 1995, he started the internet’s first website dedicated to teaching the world about wine: Hosting 100 classes a year for about 20 years – Ian is finally starting to get the hang of this. 

In 2009, Ian and his best friend Clay Mauritson started making wine together:; while this brand remains a small production, Ian hopes to grow Beekeeper Zinfandel into something special.

Working with and around great wine brands for most of his adult-life, and leading wine tours and culinary adventures around the world - Ian loves to share his story and his passion. When Covid shut down his event business, Ian pivoted full circle and restarted and launched as a way to bring his version of wine education and entertainment to a limitless audience. With his family’s wine store, virtual wine tastings with wine delivered "at home" is the latest chapter in the evolution of Ian’s dedication to wine education, edu-tainment and the wine lifestyle. This bio and life is a work in progress…let's see what the next vintage provides.
