Slate Wine Bar + Bistro Celebrates the Return of Spring
with a #RoséAllDay Wine Tasting with Fights Available All Month  

Slate Wine Bar + Bistro invites guests to toast the return of spring and rosé season with a #RoséAllDay wine tasting, from 12 noon to 11 PM on May 3. The featured wines will be available by the glass, bottle and with flights all month. Rosé is made from a wide variety of grapes found all around the globe. This lovely wine is made by juicing red grapes and allowing the juice to soak with the skins for a very short period. The aromas and flavor of rosés are primarily influenced by the grape used to produce the wine and the method of production also plays an important part. Guests of this special afternoon will explore rosé wines selected by Chef/Sommelier Daniel Lledó and Rachael Buehrer from The Country Vintner to complement the restaurant’s a la carte menu. Two rosé wine flights will be available: a European rosé wine flight featuring four two-ounce pours for $15 and an American rosé wine flight featuring three two-ounce pours for $17.
