A Call For Rosé – May Panel Review (Drink Pink!)

Last week I waxed poetically (well at least passionately) about Rosé and some of the myths in Rhône Rosé Panel: Quivira, Mounts, and Skinner Vineyards.

Domestic Rosé continues to grow in production, mostly from small producers, as the US population of more savvy drinkers buy domestic offers that have gotten substantially better, and newer wine drinkers discover this is not their Parent’s sugary Sutter Home White Zin.

Its also noteworthy that Rosé imports are booming. Wines of Provence in recent press release noted a 62% increase in imports.

In the spirit of my popular December sparklers panel australia healthcare online viagra , I will do a panel tasting of Rosé wines and publish a series of articles of what I think are the best finds.

I will break the reviews into categories, Domestic vs Imports, State, region, or even varietal categories. Pinot vs Rhone vs Bordeaux etc. if there are sufficient wines to merit comparison. There will also be an overall top picks across all categories.


If you are interested in sending a sample please email SimpleHedonisms@Gmail.com – feel free to ask any questions about the panel, reader stats (8-10k unique readers a month), etc.

Samples from all regions are welcome, including importers. Duplicate samples are always appreciated, in the event of tainted bottles, but in today’s world of high expense & reduced cork TCA, screwtops, not required. If you wish to include some other new/recent release, since already shipping, feel free.

All wines tasted, whether published or not, will be added to my lengthy and well followed Cellartracker notes.

Samples should be received by May 5th. If you are on the cusp of a release, email me – perhaps I can delay a category slightly. Wines that are available tasting room or DTC only are fine, and will be noted with purchase links.


Cheers and until then, drink pink!
