This Sunday: Robust Rosé Seminar
Hello, my dear hedonists. Apologies for being away these past two weeks, but I’ve been traveling to hedonistic locales (reviews forthcoming) and planning an upcoming event (details below) that I’d like you to attend if you are so inclined.
This Sunday, August 28th, 2011 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the American Institute of Wine and Food (AIWF) is co-hosting with (and at) Wine World Warehouse the following event: Robust Rosé: A Wine & Food Pairing Seminar. Full disclosure: I sit on the board of AIWF, will co-present at this event as a Wine World Rosé Class with the sommelier, founder, and general manager of Wine World David LeClaire, and absolutely LOVE rosé wines.
That’s right, dear hedonists – I drink pink. I gush over blush. (What rhymes with rosé, anyway?) And you should, too. For it’s not as if the darker the color of the wine, the better off you are. (For, generally, size and color do NOT matter, dear hedonists.)
What’s more, rosé wines have a fabulous history that predates France, believe it or not. And as far as food and wine pairings go, rosé wines are in the same joyously diverse category as the beloved white wine called Riesling. (Which reminds me – we’ll be announcing a winner of that Riesling Haiku Contest soon.)
Oh, and there will be catered bites with which to pair in taste test fashion from Wallingford’s own Joule Restaurant and Kabul Afghan Cuisine, both located up and down the street from Wine World (literally).
Have I piqued your interest? Then RSVP ASAP, dear hedonists. To register, contact fellow AIWF Pacific NW Board Member Laurie Kunzie at 425-830-6971, 425-957-0611, or email her at email@example.com. The cost is $25 for AIWF Pacific NW Chapter Members and Wine World Explorers Club Members. For the rest of you, it’s $30.
P.S. – This is for a good cause: proceeds benefit the AIWF Pacific Northwest Chapter’s scholarship program.
