RoseMay is riesling month in the Finger Lakes, but it's rosé season in Long Island wine country.

Throughout the month of May, participating Long Island wineries will be featuring newly released rosés in a benefit for the American Cancer Society. Wineries will be offering special rosé tastings, many paired with food prepared by local chefs or accompanied by live music. One dollar from the sale of all rosés during the month will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

To see what each participating winery has planned, check out the list over at the Long Island Wine Council website. It looks like many, but not all, of my favorite local rosé producers are taking part.

Drink pink — not just because it tastes good, but because it is also for a good cause.
