Summer of Rosé

What better way to celebrate your summer in the sun, than by sipping on a lovely, refreshing rosé wine?

 

Thankfully the Princeton Corkscrew Wine Shop has just introduced their new and decadent Six-pack Sampler of Rosé!

We caught up with Wine Educator, Carl Rohrbach of the Corkscrew and learned why he’s so excited about this summer treat.

“Its versatility, value and overall quality.”

 

With a diploma in Wine & Spirits (DWS) from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET), Carl’s main focus at the Corkscrew

 is to conduct weekly staff trainings and tastings, while also creating the content for the website.

“This sampler is a great representation of the wide range of styles, grapes and geographic locations rosé is made in.”

 Carl also mentions, “Laurent Chapuis (the owner of the shop) has been a champion of rosé since he first opened the

Princeton Corkscrew over 20 years ago, and this sampler is one of his favorite collections of the year!”
