Party Diary: National Rosé Day presented by Chateau de Berne


Summer in the Hamptons means many things, but more and more it is associated with a certain rosy hue. This past Saturday was National Rosé Day and I wholeheartedly celebrated the holiday at The Rose Topping House. I put on a festive pink outfit, sipped Chateau de Berne with cool people, and learned about rosé!

Guests tasted four rosé’s in order: romance, inspiration, ultimate, and provence. Jon McDaniel, owner of Second City Soil, explained to me exactly how each bottle increases in boldness. You would drink the first rosé on your yacht, and the rosé’s get bigger and bolder as you steep the rosé for longer. Black-skinned grapes are crushed and the skins are allowed to remain in contact with the juice for a short period, typically two to twenty hours. The more you know!
