To every Rosé there is a season, and for fall this is Gaspard made by Jenny and Francois Selections. This natural Loire Valley blend of Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pineau D’Aunis celebrates autumn from the inside out. The label serves as a reminder that it’s harvest time and there’s work to be done, Rosé to be enjoyed, and so much beauty to take in. The wine is unexpected, dry with that au natural taste and – fittingly- notes of cranberré.
September is birthdé month at Yes Way Rosé! Naturallé we’re a couple of Virgos, just like Rosé which is generally harvested in September and Beyoncé.
After seeing this article in the September issue of Vanity Fair how could we not go to La Crémaillère in Bedford, NY for a celebration? The decision to take the train to Westchester solely for lunch at a pink table cloth French restaurant proved a great one. For a few hours it felt like we were transported to our happiest place: Provence. More→
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
This biodynamic Italian Sangiovese Rosato from Cosimo Maria Masini that we picked up in Nashville’s must-visit WOODLAND WINE MERCHANT is a glorious fall pink wine. It’s a bright Rosé in color and taste with fruity raspberry notes and good minerality. The sweet colors on the label make you want to dance around an empty field with the bottle in hand and that’s why it’s one we envé.
True storé: a friend sent me a photo of Cafe ROZE over Instagram knowing I would be traveling to Nashville. I did some research and saw that Kristin Cavallari randomly was a huge fan (Nikki said this research was very Ingrid Goes West of me.) Whatever, because it was quite a surprise to pull up to this new East Nashville restaurant and find Summer Water on the menu! The design is modern with a beautiful mix of light pink, marble and cool grey (very YWR). The menu has options both healthy and comfort-y. And, did we mention they have Summer Water? GO! –EB
I’m not sure about you, but I can’t wait for winter. This Mansur Gavriel FW17 puffer for an après ski look is FIRE.
Livingston Manor in Upstate New York’s Sullivan County is having a major moment. On Main Street alone the relaxed town now has fireside pizza and cocktails with The Kaatskeller, a delicious bakery, Brandenburg, where the seedy loafs are a reason to fully embrace carbs, and on the weekend, ELM Garden & Floral Design are posted up with gorgeous, affordable bouquets.
All of this has been made even more elevated with Upstream Wine & Spirits, our dear friend Meg McNeil’s expertly curated wine and liquor store. (Because you can now have your Rosé and your Mezcal too in a town best known for their fly fishing!) Upstream is everything you want from a wine store, which is a friendly place where you know anything you buy is was worth trying even if it doesn’t end up being your thing. And the owner is the best! Meg is the ultimate shopgirl with impeccable taste and a boho style that both locals and Brooklynites visiting will want to emulate. If we’re making her sound crazé cool it’s because she is.
We caught up with her before she headed on a wine trip to Italy to talk about what’s in store for Fall, and more! More→
We were lucky to get our hands on Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan’s 2016 Blushing Bear Rosé, a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvedre and, damn, it’s good. Normally we are wary of celebrité wine, but this crisp and dry Columbia Valley Rosé delivers Provence-style deliciousness that is just delightful. The bottle has limited availability and is on the pricier side for Rosé, but Some Good Wine has it (with a great review, too) and we think it’s worth every penné.
We’ll be posted up for a Summer Water happé hour this Wednesday from 5-7 at Two Hands, the most Aussie vibey restaurant in all of NYC. Come hang, mates! There will be a special Summer Water cocktail and food pairing.
