Romance and Rosé

Wolffer Estate Summer in a Bottle Rosé

As you will see if you read enough posts, I have roots on Long Island.  I was born and raised in Cutchogue smack dab in the middle of wine country.  When I was growing up there were only a handful of vineyards.  We still mostly had farms growing potatoes, cauliflower, and corn.  The North Fork now has over 40 wineries, but what makes it such a great place to visit is how condensed the area is.  Driving from one winery to the next, takes sometimes less than a minute.  Even better you can reach the Long Island Sound or the Great Peconic Bay again in just mere minutes.  For my summer nights or relaxed nights nothing beats Summer in a Bottle.  Wolffer Estates is actually in the Hamptons AVA, but it’s all home to me.  The bottle is decorated in a colorful floral design perfectly complementing the light pink of the wine.  SIAB is a blend of Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Pinot Gris.  This combo makes for a very aromatic wine.  It’s a little bit of stone fruit and little bit floral.  Chill it up and sip with wild abandon!  Summer in a Bottle is a romantic wine.   Maybe it’s the floral notes and the delicate color but that’s why it’s ideal for music under the stars or a romantic evening.
