The Sipping Point, And The Springtime Rosé Tipping Point

Vinted on April 8, 2012 binned in about 1winedude blog, holidays

It’s Easter, and therefore the advent of Springtime in the U.S. (or is that the other way around?), and whether or not you celebrate today’s holiday, chances are that you’ll now be inundated with wine recommendations imploring you to drink rosé. If you weren’t already, I mean.

Those recommendations turn up at higher quantities this time of year than tulips and mulch in a gated community.

I’m not going to jump on the rosé wine reco tip (despite the fact that rosé is very likely what I’ll be drinking today), not because it doesn’t fit the season (it does) but because I really can’t think of any reason not to drink rosé all year long. Seriously – ever had a dry rosé with grilled salmon burgers (in the Summer)? That pairing is totally lights-out.

Having nothing really to do with springtime or rosé, I wanted to also mention that yesterday I was a guest on WBAL’s The Sipping Point with The Wine Coach (a.k.a. wine educator Laurie Forster, with whom I share a passion to inject as much fun into wine as possible before the wine biz thoroughly drains it of all awesomeness). We talked about some exciting upcoming projects that I have going on (so now you can stop giving me crap about not telling you what those are!), and riffed on the theme of whether or not wine “experts” actually taste wine differently than regular Janes and Joes. They edited out all of my GO STEELERS! crap at the end – but hey, it’s for Baltimore radio so you kind of have to expect it, right?

An excerpt from the show is embedded below for your listening pleasure. You can (and should!) subscribe to The Sipping Point podcast on iTunes.

    One of my favorite winemakers, Russ Raney of Evesham Wood, drinks rose year round. A great spring wine, a great summer wine, a great autumn wine. And I've got my eye on a rose Thanksgiving this year

      gabe – I’ve certainly had rosé grace our Turkey Day table, no doubt. Cheers!

      :) Thanks, Debbie! We also put them on the dog, with… decidedly *mixed* results!
