Rosé Wine Fans Are There Too Many #RoséDays?

Contributor blog post by Susan Manfull:

With two #rosédays down and one more to go, you may wonder just how many #pinkwinedays we need to celebrate. Some people question why we need to devote even one day to #celebraterosé. It’s summer — isn’t everyone already drinking #roséallday? Heck, we’ve moved way past #roséallsummer to #roséallyear. Isn’t every swimsuit-clad millennial toasting #yayrosé on Instagram?  Wait! I think it’s #roséyay. Or is it #yeswayrosé (whatever that means)? Oh, just raise the damned glass and toast to the once humble rosé!

…Continue reading here for Susan’s detailed article on the pink wine celebrations that seem to mark the summer months. There are three: U.S. National Rosé Day, International Rosé Day and Rosé Day on August 14th. Is that too much focus on pink-hued wine? Is it too much of a fad to last?

It was love at first sight when my family and I arrived in the charming village of Lourmarin for a short vacation, nearly 20 years ago. We returned home to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and the next thing I knew we were planning a much longer sojourn in that village and making arrangements to enroll our daughter in the local school there. That led to buying a maison de village— actually two, then a courtyard, a parking spot, and a bergerie— in our favorite Provençal village where we (readily) adopted that certain joie de vivre, established dear friendships, and, to this day, endeavor to blend in with the crowd at Café Gaby.

We no longer own property in Lourmarin, but we continue to hang our hats there frequently and gather fodder for our souls and for The Modern Trobaors and Provence WineZine. There is never a shortage.

The Modern Trobaors , conceived in 2008, is about all things Provence: its markets, hilltop villages, lavender, art, literature, culture, history, food, wine, and news. Provence WineZine, launched in August 2014, focuses on wines from the regions of Provence and the Southern Rhône Valley—with a special emphasis on Provence's world-renowned rosés—and the men and women who make them.
