What To Drink Now: Mother’s Day Rosé


In part two of our celebration of mom this weekend, we toast her with dry, still Rosé wines. Over the past decade or so Rosé has changed its tune from being the cloyingly sweet wines that reminded you of a watermelon Jolly Rancher to being lush, refined, gastronomic selections that shine with character and a sense of place with a dry palate and a whisper of pink color. As we ramp up for summertime, what has become known as Rosé season, now is the time to start sipping Rosé. Mom will thank you for it! #Cheers

We’re Cooking: Mediterranean Style Shrimp
