RedbarnWhat an awesome weekend I have coming up.

Sunday morning, I’m holding a rose tasting panel at Pellegrini Vineyards’ to explore the different styles of rose/pink/blush wine being crafted here on Long Island.

Joining me on the tasting panel will be both Wine Chicks, Dr. Vino, the Wine Goddess and John, currently of Pellegrini Vineyards and soon-to-be head winemaker at Shinn Estate Vineyeyards. Right now I’ve assembled almost twenty wines for us to try.

We won’t be grading or rating the wines. Instead, we’ll explore their differences and try to identify similarities (if there are any).

The other exciting part of the weekend is that most of us, along with significant others, will be dining together Saturday night at Red Barn Bed & Breakfast, where co-owner and chef Linda Slezak is putting together a four course feast for us and we’ll be doing our own wine pairing.

Should be a lot of fun. Stay tuned for more next week.
