Joey Wölffer hosted a celebratory event in partnership with Destination Haus and Hamptons Social for the launch of Wölffer Estate Vineyards Cellar Series Own Rooted Merlot Rosé. Guests reserved tickets for their own intimate groups and indulged in a socially distanced 3-course dinner on the beautiful remote grounds within the vines of Wölffer Estate. The whimsical picnic-style dinner atmosphere adorned with magical decorative elements was curated by Destination Haus.
Everyone enjoyed sipping on Wölffer's world-class wines, including their newest Own Rooted Rosé, a unique and rare taste of a pure Vitis Vinifera wine that is not grown on a grafted vine. The rosé provides a beautiful bright copper color. The aroma is delicate with fine floral notes with hints of ripe berries, mint, and some chalky icing. There is also a lovely classic earthy undertone. The mouth-feel is focused and perfectly balanced showing wonderful fresh Merlot fruit flavors in the mid-palate before beautiful acidity and a slight “barely” ripe strawberry note. This is a statement rosé and a wine that pairs beautifully with food.
