Understanding Rosé a New Book by Elizabeth Gabay

Contributor blog post by Susan Manfull:

Alexis Lichine famously said, “If you want to learn about wine, buy a corkscrew and use it.” Elizabeth Gabay MW, being a fixture in the Provence rosé scene for well over a decade, has opened many bottles of pink wine since moving from the United Kingdom to the southeastern corner of France—just not at the same pace she did recently.

…Continue reading here to learn about this talented lady and the author of Rosé:  Understanding the Pink Wine Revolution. The book is scheduled to be published in December 2017. The publication is only after a dedicated research (she opened 1500+ bottles) and writing project by Master of Wine Elizabeth Gabay. In her book you will discover why she feels that rosé is exciting, and why colour should not be a guide for quality or style.

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.
