  It’s Memorial Day Weekend, and in my mind, the unofficial start of summer (I’d like to believe we’re finally done with snow for the next few months). That means taking advantage of eating outside, reading a book outside, and just generally, being outside. But it also can get incredibly hot during the summer months, which can put a cramp in my outside time. So to stay cool, it’s time to break out the blender and enjoy some frozen drinks. With alcohol. Frozen drinks tend to be so easy and so delicious and are a nice change of pace from just a glass of wine or beer.   There are of course the standard frozen margaritas or frozen rosé, but you’d […]

Posted by | · · · · · · · · · | Learn more about wine · Things to do in Denver · Wine Tasting in Denver | 1 Comment on Top 13 Reasons Why Rosé is Bae

Allie Kohler Every day is a Rosé kind of day. From its fun and sophistication to its character and class, this wine will always come ‘before anything else’. Here’s thirteen reasons and ways to love Rosé.  1. Rosé is like, really pretty.
