Rosé wines are perhaps the most versatile, food-friendly wines around. They have had an image problem to overcome, thanks in part to the run of "White Zin," as many consumers mistake Rosé wines to be overly sweet and in the category of "starter wine." However, Rosé wine sales are on the rise as savvy Wine Lovers have discovered that many of these pink wines lean more to the side of dry than the color suggests.  For this program, each 100% Texas grown wine will be paired with a delectable morsel which will complement the unique characteristics of their wines.

Seminar Host:  John Bratcher, Rock Ridge Wine Traders, with Vintners from four of Texas’ top wineries
