In honor of National Rosé Day, or as I like to call it Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Repeat, I decided to pick up a bottle of blush and partake in the partaay!!!!! On this particular occasion, my husband was at the Roger Waters concert in Oakland and my 22 month year old twins were soundly sleeping by 7pm. If that’s not a reason to celebrate I don’t know what is. Having a Saturday night all to myself happens like NEVER.
One of the things I love about Rosé is the fact that you can get a pretty great bottle for under $15 bucks. I saw this bottle of Chateau Fabregues Costieres de Nimes Rosé online on Total Wine & More’s Top 15 Summer Wines list for $14.49 a bottle so I bit! I’ve been a bargain hunter long before becoming a twin baby mama, so I was super excited to see California customers receive $10 off total purchase of $50 or more. Being a California Girl pays off once more!
I paired the Chateau Fabregues Costieres de Nimes Rosé with a Milky Way Bomb from Noe Valley Bakery. I am in no way saying this is the perfect rosé wine pairing. These days I care less about perfect pairings and more about perfect scenarios to stuff my face with food I love. And this dessert is to die for!
Chateau Fabregues Costieres de Nimes is a Rosé made up of Grenache and Syrah grapes. This rosé wine comes from the most southerly appellation of the Rhone wine region in southeastern France. This is one of the oldest wine regions in the world dating back to the ancient times. The rosé and red wines in the Costieres de Nimes AOC are required to be made up of at least 60 percent Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre.
In case you actually missed National Rosé Day, fear not my friends it happens like every year!!! The annual event is observed on the second Saturday in June. National Rosé Day was submitted to and approved by the registrar of National Day Calendar in October of 2014 by Bodvár – House of Rosés – a Rosé House specializing in Rosé wines to raise awareness and give Rosé lovers a day to celebrate with “summer’s water”.
Rosé wines are made from red grapes and pair well with a variety of foods. I love rosé wine and pizza! Rosé is one of the oldest known types of wine, dating back to 600 BC. The pink color of rosé wine depends on the time the grape skin stays in contact with the juice, aka maceration. There are tons of options when it comes to picking a perfect rosé wine that’s right for you. Rosé wines can be still, semi-sparkling or sparkling. Rosé wines come in a variety of sweetness levels and shades of pink. Ranging from very pale pink to a deeper shade closer to red in color. So pretty much rosé wines are perfect for any palate. Another reason why Rosé Day Can Totally Happen Everyday!
