La Nuit de Rosé

This past weekend downtown Manhattan turned into one big pink party with La Nuit de Rosé, the world's first festival dedicated to rosé wine.

The celebration kicked off on Pier 40 as guests boarded the Hornblower Infinity Yacht on a pink runway; just a small preview of what's was about to happen inside.

Pink, white and gold balloons covered the ceiling of the #todaywerose corner where Mionetto Prosecco, Gloria Ferrer Brut Rose and Gratien & Meyer crémant were pouring bright and bubbly all afternoon.

The wine tasting spread out across three floors of the boat, showcasing rosé from 200 wineries around the world.

Ultimate Provence was pouring magnums and jérobaoms of their spicy Provence rosé made from a blend of cinsault, syrah and grenache.

California winery JNSQ (Je ne sais quoi) won the award for the most beautiful bottle design...

Followed by the elegant Chateau Roubine  La Vie En Rosé whose lovey white vine etchings were the perfect match for the juicy notes of strawberry and cream in the wine.

The boat set sail around lower Manhattan, cruising by Governors Island, the Statue of Liberty and the Financial District while guests sipped and danced the day away.

This was a wonderful celebration of all things pink and delicious whether it be dry or sweet, still or bubbly, they all reminded us to Live For The Day!

I can't think of a better way to kick off summer in New York City.
