Solo Vino Rose’ Tent Tasting

We had a really fun time at a St. Paul area wine shop event today: Solo Vino‘s 4th Annual Rose’ Tent Tasting.  Not all Rose’s, but 144 summer wines to try.  A tough job, but somebody has to do it!

Not long after the start, Chuck Kanski got everyone’s attention to officially kickoff the party with a volunteer smashing a wine glass to cheers all around.

Official start of the party: smashing the wine glass!

Of course, someone has to pick up the glass.

Gotta keep track in the notebook!

Rose’, sparkiing wine, sparkling rose’, it’s all here!

Line after line of beautiful wines

Here are a few of my favorites from the afternoon.  I’ll be picking some of them up at the sale this week and will report on how they do with dinner over the summer.

  1. Such a well written post.. Thnkx for sharing this post!

  2. Looks like a great event! I love rosé (and not just in the summer). A little trick: hold down the ALT key and type “130” (without the quotes) took me a while to figure that one out….
