Wine Competition Devoted to All Things Rosé to be Held in May; Winning Wines Presented to Consumers at ‘The Great Rosé Infusion for Summer’ in June
Because every day pairs better with Rosé,” is the philosophy of Craig Palmer and Allen Habel, co-founders of Experience Rosé a brand that fully celebrates the pink drink. The brand will host an array of events in 2019, kicking things off with Experience Rosé: The 2019 Competition in May, where this year, for the first time ever, they’ve opened the competition up to all rosé-infused products (both domestic and international). Wines will still be the focus of the competition, but producers of rosé-infused spirits, beers and ciders are encouraged to enter as well. Produced by Wine Competitions Management & Productions, the judging will take place at Soda Rock Winery in Healdsburg, Calif. on May 1, 2019. Gold-and-above winners in the Competition will be invited to showcase their wines at The Great Rosé Infusion of Summer event, to be held Saturday, June 22, also at Soda Rock Winery in Healdsburg. This consumer event will provide lovers of the pink with the opportunity to sample the most outstanding Rosé wines in the world alongside a selection of exceptional non-wine Rosé entries, all paired with custom-tailored gourmet accompaniments of both the savory and sweet variety.
“Our goal with the competition and consumer events is to showcase excellence in domestic and international winemaking,” says Founder and Co-Producer Craig Palmer. “We look forward to connecting lovers of all things rosé with singular adventures and curated resources that are spirited, expansive and revelatory. That’s why we only pour gold-and-above winners from our Competition, paired in a sophisticated and tantalizing setting.”
The Experience Rosé: The 2019 Competition on May 1 will showcase the best of the best from both domestic and international producers in dry, sparkling and sweet categories, while presenting a wide range of Rosé winemaking styles. The event will be held at the Alexander Valley’s historic Soda Rock Winery. The deadline to enter the competition for winemakers is Friday, April 26, with shipments due by Monday, April 29, 2019.
