CELEBRATE MOM & EVERYTHING ROSE
Saturday, May 11 @ both store locations- 1:00pm - 5:00pm

As we gear up for one of the BEST holidays of the year (wink wink), why not consider bringing mom to one of our stores for an afternoon of rosé wine tasting! Before you start thinking rosé is the stuff you were coerced into drinking back in the day when you couldn't afford anything better, JUST STOP RIGHT THERE!

Did you know that true rosé wine is actually dry, not sweet? Some of the best rosé is found in France, Spain or California and is the result of a winemaking process where the skins are kept intact until just after crush giving the wine a pinkish hue. This tedious process delivers a dry product that resembles the body of a red while providing the crispness and minerality of a white. Learn more and taste our collection of rosés Saturday, May 11th at our Chicago Ave. and Gartner Rd. stores!
