March Kicks Off with Provence 2009 Rose Wines Tasting in New York and L.A

Will it melt the snow, I am not sure?

What I know for sure is that as long as I can shake the cold that caught me by surprise today, I will look for a Taste of Spring if not Summer at the "Provence in the City" Rosé Wines Tasting on Monday March 1st, 2010 in New York.


It takes place at Lunch time which is perfect for light fare and refreshing wines.

Under the umbrella of the Comite Interprofessionel des Vins de Provence (CIVP) the following producers, 26 of them, will be showcasing their 2009 vintage:

Cellier Saint Sidoine, Cercle des Vignerons de Provence,
Château d'Esclans - Domaines Sacha Lichine,
Château de Berne, Château de Calavon, Château de Pourcieux,
Château de Saint Martin, Château Elie Sumeire, Château La Mascaronne,
Château la Moutete, Château Margüi, Château Minuty, Château Miraval,
Château Roubine, Château Sainte Roseline, Domaine de Brigue, Domaine de Fontlade,
Domaine de la Sanglière, Domaine de Rimauresq, Domaine Saint André de Figuière,
Domaine Sainte Lucie, Global Vini Services, Les Quatre Tours,
Maîtres Vignerons de Saint-Tropez,
Mas de Cadenet, Vignobles Famille Quiot - Domaine Houchart

Amongst them, Sacha Alexis Lichine of Chateau d'Esclans is known for his highly rated high end Rosés like the small production Garrus (around 80 Euros a bottle).

I am certain that most of the others will stay in the $12 to $15 range common for most Rosés.

They will continue their US roadshow in Los Angeles on March 5th with 13 of the producers this time.

Kids and Garland Jeffreys Rock for Haiti at Petite Abeille, NY, March 7, 5 Pm

Feb 27
Back in my high school days, I remember times when along with friends idealism and a desire to help got us involved in similar efforts. With that and the suffering of so many people in impoverished Haiti in mind, I had to lend my modest support to a group of kids who were passionate enough to decide to try and do something. Who and what is behind this Kids Rocking for Haiti in NYC: "A...
