La Nuit en Rosé | Sippin Wine On A Yacht
How do you take your wine red, white, or rosé? Well, on May 10th I had the pleasure of sipping rosé aboard a Yacht. La Nuit En Rosé, a wine festival/cruise just for tasting a curated selection of rosé, from dry to sweet, still or sparkling. Oh what fun! As we sailed around the hudson river, I had to multitask between sipping delicious pink juice, and covering the event.
Back for its sixth year in New York, the wine cruise had three levels of wines, live entertainment, samples of crackers & cheese, and a cute photo op station for the gram. Outside, the view was amazing, luckily the rain stopped just as we set sail that day. Attendees were dressed in shades of pinks and light colors (think cruise fashion), with camera phones in one hand, and a rosé in the other (there may have been a few pinky finger struttings.)
As mentioned in my previous wine post, I'm a sweet gal, so naturally I was on a mission to find what tickled my pink fancy (palate). Amongst the many tasted, I came across some preferred selections below (top four).
