Advice needed on small scale Rosé tasting party

free sample addict aka Tracy L | Aug 19, 2007 04:02 PM

I am relatively new to rosé but absolutely love the wine. I'd like to have an excuse to try several rosés at one time;however, I am not sure how to set it up. I was originally thinking of having three different regions then I thought of doing three different varietals. I am good with food part but I would appreciate any advice on wines and organization of the tasting. Here are the parameters:

1. The group is comprised of all red wine drinkers (except DH and myself) but they do like Cavas. They really like Zinfandels and Cabs specifically a Zin from Jessie's Grove winery in Lodi and Frank Family Cabernet. We have regular wine tastings so I prefer it to be well structured rather than three of my favorite rosés.
2. Budget is not an issue and I have access to a lot of sources and am planning this well in advance in case I need to have wine shipped.
3. Thinking of having three wines and a sparkling wine.
4. I will have light snacks with the tasting and then we can proceed to the rest of the dinner so they can enjoy their reds should the rosés not be to their liking.
