Wines and ciders and beers, oh my! Rosé may be the official beverage of the summertime, but do you know how it’s made? Put on your rosé-colored glasses and join our Beverage Experts as they guide you through a tasting of our favorite pink drinks. We’ve chosen 5 beverages from producers that we believe deserve to be highlighted because of their dedication to creating high quality products that benefit the environment, their employees, and consumers alike.
In this class, guests will:
- discover the process of making each beverage and how each one gets its unique shade of pink
- hear about each producer and why we choose to showcase their product
- learn how to properly taste wine, cider, and beer with our Beverage Experts
- get tips on how to pair each beverage with food
- enjoy family-style snacks including bread, cheese, and charcuterie
- take home tasting notes and a special offer just for class participants
