THE Rosés of Provence: A Wine Tasting Seminar at the Alliance

Mingle, sip, and sample newly arrived rosés from Provence, a region devoted to the perfection of a single wine – rosé. Taste a range of rosés that will surprise and delight you and educate your palate:

As Hoke has put it, "Any winemaker can make rosé. Most make it as a sideline to their red or white wines. Provence is obsessively focused on making rosé. Everything they do, from the planting of the grapes to the gentle pressing of the fresh juice; from the delicate aromas and subtle flavors of fruits and flowers and herbes de Provence; everything is done to make the perfect rosé. Rosé: It is simply what Provence does." 

Hoke Harden will be your guide and sommelier. An enthusiastic lover of wine and spirits, Hoke has experienced every possible facet of the business. He is a Certified Specialist of Wine, attended the  FWS Master Program for Vins de Provence and the Maison de Rosé, is a US Ambassador for Pineau des Charentes, and a BNIC Certified Cognac Educator Hoke loves both the fantasy and reality of Provence Rosé and is eager to share the region and the wines with you.
