Every summer brings a new sunny sip cherished by local wine lovers, and 2012 is no exception. Last year it was the Riesling Revolution, and this will certainly be the Summer of Rosé.

Want to jump on the bandwagon? Forget what you know about pink wine and head to Rosé in the Rose City, coming to town on Thursday, June 14th.
