June 9, 2016 Celebrating National Rosé Day in Style

BY Amber Hayes

National Rosé Day is upon us! Celebrated the second Saturday in June, this year National Rosé Day falls on Saturday, June 11th. This is a great opportunity for all of you Rosé fans to imbibe that deliciously refreshing beverage we’ve all come to know and love. It’s also a creative and fun excuse to throw a party. I mean, really, is there anything better in summer than delicious Rosé, friends and themes? We think not. But how does one throw a Rosé party? Not to fret. We have you covered.

How to Throw an Unforgettable Rosé Soirée:

The Bottles: This is an obvious one. For an excellent wine fête, one must provide excellent wine. Here are just some of the Rosés we recommend serving:

 

    • Guigal Cotes du Rhone 2014 Rosé
    • Bodvár of Sweden No 5 Rosé 2014, France
    • Lucien Albrecht Cremant d’Alsace Brut Rosé, France
    • Chateau D’Aqueria Tavel Rosé 2013, France11373751_607511179351800_2112561977_n
    • Domaine de la Fouquette Cotes de Provence Rosé 2015, France
    • Sierra Cantabria Rosado 2014, Spain
    • Miraval Rosé 2015, France
    • Commanderie de la Bargemone Rosé Coteaux d’Aix en Provence 2015, France
    • Chateau D’Aqueria Tavel Rosé 2013, France
    • Prieure de Montezargues Tavel Rosé 2014, France
    • Underwood Rosé 2015, U.S.
    • Les Dauphins Cotes Du Rhone Reserve 2014, France

 

  • The Theme: Remember, not everyone you invite may be as fanatical about Rosé as you are. At least, not yet. They will be by the time the evening is through. To make sure all arrive in high spirits and are excited to celebrate the special day, get them involved in the theme ahead of time.
  • Dress Code: Request everyone wear something pink. Yes, even the guys!

 

 

  • The Tunes: Music is essential in setting the vibe for any party. To make sure you match your desired energy level for your gathering while still showcasing Rosé’s storied French origins, here are our picks:

 

    • Tranquil: Play some Provençal folk music. In this region of France, it is most common to find the lovely simplicity of a fife and drum representing Provençal folk at its authentic core. Artists: Patrice Cornte, Yves Rousguisto and André Gabriel
    • Vintage: There were so many great artists during the 60’s and 70’s. France, too had a plethora of iconic singers during those decades. For a mod, throwback vibe with the glamour of the French language, look for the iconic vocalists from the “Summer of Love” scene. Artists: Dalida, Edith Piaf, Jean-Claude Pascal, France Gall & Johnny Hallyday (The “French Elvis”).
    • Modern & Upbeat: If you want people shaking their groove things at your gathering, there a ton of great, modern options, too. Again in keeping with the French language, you still find a veritable smorgasbord of Dance, Techno and  Pop choices. Artists: Yelle, Stromae (Technically-He’s Belgian but no one needs to know) and Alizee.

We hope these tips helped inspire you to celebrate the greatest wine ever made. If you do find yourself the Host/Hostess with the Mostest on Saturday the 11th, be sure to share your photos with us. We hope you enjoy National Rosé Day and have a fabulous time (We know we will!).
