Rosé Lit: Summer Reading Edition

All is well in the summer when there’s extra time to open a good book with a bottle of pink wine. These are Erica’s current picks with a range that will make you laugh, cry, and want to host a very thoughtful soirée.  

Petty: The Biography by Warren Zanes 

This intimate and epic rock ‘n’ roll biographé goes deep into the life of the music legend. It shows how Petty’s prolific catalogue is not the result of luck, but focused hard work, a tireless drive to succeed, wild talent, and the magic that happens when it all clicks together. There’s also plenty of behind-the-scenes gossip and juicy details, plus Stevie Nicks if you needed any more convincing.  

The Art of Gathering by Priya Parker  

A guide to hosting events of all kinds, this book will change how you go about planning everything from your next meeting to birthday party to rosé tasting. Parker challenges societal norms to create more meaningful and memorable experiences for all involved. I will be consulting it regularlé as we plan events for YWR.  

Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover

This inspirational and powerful page-turner is a coming-of-age memoir about how Westover, raised with no formal education (and who had a totally crazy and heartbreaking childhood), would go on to earn a Ph.D. from Cambridge. I don’t want to give away too much, but buy now, read now. 

Wine. All the Time.: The Casual Guide to Confident Drinking by Marissa A. Ross

Drinking wine is fun and for those not studying to become a sommelier reading about it should be too. Marissa approaches wine and specifically her true passion, natural wine, with a sense of humor so you can lol and learn what this whole vino thing is about at the same time.   

The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer

As someone who is still best friends with her childhood camp friends, this novel was an emotional roller coaster. The character-driven story follows a group of camp friends through adulthood and all of the drama that unfolds over the years. It left me in tears (just being honest!) and got me beyond excited to read Wolitzer’s latest, The Female Persuasion, since I’m a few years behind.  

We’ve Got 99 Problems….

But Jay-Z’s champagne isn’t one.

Beyoncé is one step removed from this pricey bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac Rosé bubblé. The high end champagne brand, which releases five prestige cuvées crafted by 11th-generation growers from the Cattier family, is owned by her hubbé Jay-Z. Nicknamed “Ace of Spades,” for those in the know, the heavy pink metallic bottle is like a coat of armor for the bubbles, further protected by a lacquered black gift box. The assemblage is comprised of 50% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay from a trifecta of vintages; 2009, 2010 and 2012. The bright pink hue is achieved from 15% of still red wine harvested from old Pinot Noir vines.  

We don’t normally hold on to bottles for that long, but we’ve been saving this for the perfect Queen Bey worthy occasion. Being north of $500 seems like a good reason to wait. Right? You can’t knock the hustle and we’ve been hustling! That said, it’s getting popped imminentlé.

Yes Way Runway

If the Paris runway for next spring is any indication it’s going to be a very good year for Rosé. The blush hued looks were exceptional, most notably at Alexander McQueen with Sarah Burton’s to-die-for English garden inspired dresses and Louis Vuitton with these chic sporty shorts. These looks are what a dream Rosé wardrobe is made of. More

This October we are focusing extra energé on charité, unité and communité. Each week we will happily donate 20% of the proceeds from yeswayrose.com to a different fundraising effort and organization. They will be (in chronological order) the Puerto Rico & Caribbean Hurricane Relief Fund, the Mexico Earthquake Relief FundBreast Cancer Research Foundation, and ExaltWe encourage you to shop or donéte however you can to those in need!

Monday Motivétion

The lovelé Drew Barrymore says to drink Rosé winter, spring, summer or fall! Listen to Drew and follow her Barrymore Wines account for more of her Rosécapades!

Listen and Drink: Ariel Pink

The new dreamy psych-pop Ariel Pink album, Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, is an endless summer gift to pink drinkers. If there’s a record that defines the elusive yet intriguing concept of Roséwave we think it’s this one. The songs are trippy, romantic, and chill, but with a poppy sense of urgency. With song titles like “I Wanna Be Young,” “Another Weekend,” and “Bubblegum Dreams,” it’s almost like Rosé is a primary theme. If you can get your hands on it, listen and drink with Folk Machine Gamay Rosé, but any quality Rosé will do. I mean, dude’s name is PINK. 

Yes Way Le Creuset

Coffee from a pink French Press makes every morning better. Butter from a blush Butter Dish makes everything more delicious (and the inside of a fridge a more beautiful place). And anything you can make in a cast iron skillet is exponentiallé yummier when prepared in a rosé-hued Signature Skillet. The Le Creuset Hibiscus collection, tried and tested, is a dailé game changer!

Rosé Princesses Wear Pants

In YWR favorite Savannah Guthrié and Allison Oppenheim’s new children’s book, Princesses Wear Pants, Princess Penelope Pineapple favors her pants collection over frilly dresses. I can relate to Ms. Pineapple and love a power pant. So what trousers scream fashionable yet comfy Rosé domination this fall? I’m saving (all) my monéy for these from Proenza Schouler, to be worn with our white tee and these furry Birkenstocks. The look I’m ultimately going for is royal Rosé vibes. -EB
