On June the 14th Fellinis hosted a stellar event which featured a selection of

Outstanding Rosé Wines. Rosés are enjoying a huge resurgence in popularity these days

(And rightly so.)The combination of acid and strawberry fruit is summer personified.  

Matching edibles were coordinated by our Executive Chef Mike “Smitty” Smith.

The wines were expertly presented by Cyndi Grossman from her Mellecey Group portfolio.

The wines were poured in sequence from light to medium to full bodied.

They included:

A sparkler from Spain’s Basque country Inazio Urruzola Txakolina Rosado 2015

Domaine La Ligiere Sud Absolu 2017 from Beaumes de Venise in Southern France

Domaine du Tix Cotes du Ventoux 2016 “Cuvee des Restanques in Southern France

Compania Bodeguera de Valenciso –Valencisco Rosado 2015 from Rioja Spain.

And as a grand finale –a stunning full bodied monster from Tuscany:

Duemani Si IGP Coasta Toscana Rosato 2014

The versatility of Rosé as a food matching wine was ably demonstrated by these plates.

Classic Prosciutto and Melon

Smoked Salmon with Caper Aioli

Grilled Brussel Sprout Pizza with Balsamic glazed Red Onions

Strips of Grilled Sirloin with a Chimichurri Sauce.
