Frose´ – Oh that’s right, I tried it, and it was delicious!! #NoShame

Frose´ has become a new summer trend that I was originally skeptical of… However, when I was sweating bullets in Rockefeller center it was the only thing on the menu that could quench my thirst.

I am not sure of the Rose´ wine they used for the drink but regardless it was delicious. The drink was dry and not overly sweet – a dry Rose´ slushy so to speak. Notes of raspberry, strawberry, and red cherry made for a delicious and refreshing cocktail.

While we are on the topic of Rose´ I wanted to point out one of my favorites of the season…. Right now I’m completely obsessed with Ceja Vineyards Bella Flor Dry Rose´. Deliciously balanced with notes of of rose petal and plums, this pink wine is complex with a refreshing finish.

Also, have you heard of the book “Drink Pink: A Celebration of Rose´” by Victoria James & Lyle Railsback? I haven’t purchased the book yet but it has almost 5 stars on amazon right now. Definitely adding this to my summer reading list.

Hope everyone is having a good summer and enjoying some delicious pink drinks on this lovely Wine Wednesday! Cheers wine lovers! 🙂

Today is kind of surreal. I was featured on the Cru podcast speaking about my family’s business – Musto Wine Grape Company, LLC., The Connecticut Wine Industry, and The Women Winemakers of Connecticut Group I helped create. Such an amazing opportunity, I feel so grateful to have been featured. I had a great time discussing all of these topics with Chappy and I hope he is able to taste some of Connecticut’s delicious wines soon!

Chappy’s podcast focuses on “Stories from the People Behind the Wine”. And if you look at the people he has interviewed so far, the stories are insanely inspiring! He has interviewed the McBride Sisters, Brian McClintic, and Dustin Wilson just to name a few.

It was incredibly kind of him to take the time speak to me and share our conversation with his listeners. Connecticut is a small winemaking and wine growing region but we have a lot to offer any wine lover.
