Where there’s a will, there’s a rosé and on National Rosé Day, there’s a whole lot of Rosé. Swedish Rosé house Bodvár created the holiday to pay homage to this delicious pink summer wine. National Rosé Day is held on the second Saturday of June. Since we are still in quarantine and staying at home, we partnered with Bodvár to create a Rosé wine tasting at home. We are excited to share it with you.
The first annual National Rosé Day was June 13, 2015 in the Hamptons. Last year, we Roséd the day away at Eataly and the Mondrian Terrace. Rosé wines vary in color from pale pink to deeply vibrant shades of pink. Rosé is available in still and sparkling and ranges in sweetness or dryness depending on the type of grape used.
Bodvár Rosé is a Provence style Rosé, which is our favorite. Provence style Rosé is fruity and light with notes of strawberry and rose petal.
We created our stylish wine tasting with chic pink, gray and green floral linens. Each place setting featured three glasses of Bodvár Rosé, an individual cheese plate and a yellow dessert plate.
We placed a bouquet of pink tulips and white flowers in the center of the table. Our Rosé tasting featured Bodvár N°7, Bodvár N°8 and Bodvár N°5.
- N°7 is a bright, dry Rosé with notes of raspberries, orange and citrus and made with Grenache, Cinsault and Rolle
- N°8 is light, crisp Rosé with a tangy finish and made with Grenache, Cinsault and Shiraz
- N°5 is a pale Rosé with rose petal nuances, aromas of citrus and white flowers and made with Grenache, Cinsault and Rolle
We paired N°7 with Gouda, N°8 with Camembert and N°5 with Goat Cheese. Since these were all Provence style Rosés, all of these cheeses would have paired nicely with any of the wines.
For dessert, we devoured lemon and raspberry macarons. These delicate French cookies also paired nicely with the Rosé.
You can host this wine tasting with your household or your family. Our dad loved it.
This weekend, grab your favorite bottle of Rosé and drink pink on National Rosé Day.
Better yet, celebrate with these bottles of Bodvár and recreate this wine tasting at home. Remember that the world looks better through Rosé colored glasses.
