As we approach the start of summer, it’s time to consider what wine you will nominate as your concert series dancing partner, your hype man, and your consumable internal AC unit. Since the lakeshore breeze can only do so much to combat the sun, why not reach for a refreshing bottle of rosé to help pucker up those taste buds and sweat glands to send a cool, tangy sensation from head to toe!
If you’re looking for such a bottle of rosé, you are in good hands! Buy a bottle of our Stony Creek Rosé and experience a fun and fruity semi-dry blush with hints of melon and strawberry! Or try our Stony Creek Esprit, a light-bodied and floral effervescent rosé produced from our own Stony Creek Vineyard. This ruby hued expression has aromas of cherry, blackberry, and cracked black pepper that give way to bright flavors of cherry, lingonberry, and citrus! Our Holiday Wine also fits the bill of fine rosés, so don’t let the name fool you! Our Holiday Wine is a semi-sweet white blush wine with Door County cherries, which presents a smooth, mellow, and lingering cherry finish. This vivacious wine can most certainly be enjoyed any time of year!
These rosés have a natural acidity that truly puts them in a category all their own! Not too sweet, not too dry, just the perfect one-of-a-kind creation! These rosés are very versatile, with the most popular pairings being poultry, pork, ham, and seafoods. Also, try pairing these rosés with goat cheese and other mild or delicate cheeses! Not familiar with rosé wines? Well, then it’s time to be adventurous and try something new!
Sipping a chilled bottle of rosé begins as a spine aligning crispness that may present itself as a full body shimmy. So be sure to add that move into your arsenal of “shoulder shrugging” and the infamous, “Shopping Cart”. Actually, while you’re at it, your wife also wants me to remind you to remove “The Sprinkler” from that arsenal as well… “I mean, come on, Derek! The kids and our friends are watching for pete’s sake!” After the tart facial expression leaves your cheeks and your salivary glands return to normal working condition, you then observe how the sweat droplets on your forearms have turned to goosebumps. The peaceful, ‘Sunny & 75’ sensation that you are currently experiencing has now replaced your prior feelings of identifying yourself as the sacrificial roasted steer in replacement of the canceled Brew Vino event. You stare at your glass of rosé in wonderment. You exchange what you consider to be a mutual and understanding glance between yourself and the glass of rosé. You’ve officially found that summer partner in crime; that other half that makes the heat bearable… Aww garsh, now you’re both blushing.
