In celebration of National Rosé Day, four premier North Fork wineries are teaming up to present a very special rosé centric affair, the 4th Annual North Fork Rosé Crawl
On Saturday, June 8, spend the day on a self-guided crawl that will take you to Bridge Lane Wine
, Shinn Estate Vineyards
, the Tap Room at Corey Creek
and Sherwood House Vineyards
"We can't believe it's our 4th annual crawl! It started small but is now officially a summer must-do on the North Fork," Ami Opisso
, Lieb Cellars
and Bridge Lane
Wine General Manager, noted. "We believe the event's popularity stems from visitors wanting to drink serious wines but not necessarily in a serious way."
"Last year the North Fork Rosé Crawl was a huge success and we are excited to participate again this year," Molly Deegan, Bedell Cellars
EVP Marketing and Wine Club Director, added. "When we introduced Frosé at the Tap Room at Corey Creek it was a big hit with our customers. Teaming up with Bridge Lane to kick off the rosé season
seemed like a perfect fit."
For the event, Bridge Lane Wine will highlight its 2018 Bridge Lane Rosé (bright, light and fresh with notes of peach and cantaloupe), Shinn Estate Vineyards will showcase its 2017 Rose Hill Rosé (dry, light and perfectly crisp), the Tap Room at Corey Creek will offer up the 2018 Bedell Cellars Taste Rosé (dry rose with guava and young fruit notes), and Sherwood House Vineyards will feature its 2016 Oregon Road White Merlot (crisp rosé with watermelon and citrus notes).
"We are excited to participate in the North Fork Rosé Crawl this year," Chelsea Frankel of Shinn Estate Vineyards said. "We'll be featuring our Rose Hill Rosé, which is refreshing, crisp and perfect for a beach day as well as Croteax's Sparkling Rosé, Jolie
. In the spirit of the Rosé crawl, all wines will be served out of Croteaux's 'Rosé on the Run Van' out in the vineyard."
While the focus is obviously rosé, there will be lots of other fun happenings. "The crawl combines good wine and fun times," Opisso noted. "There's live music, lawn games, rosé cocktails, frosé and lots of pink."
In addition to the tastings, Bridge Lane Wine will boast rosé cocktails (available for purchase), Shinn Estate Vineyards will have rosé infused treats (available for purchase), the Tap Room at Corey Creek will serve up some frosé (available for purchase), and Sherwood House Vineyards will offer a flight of three rosés (available for purchase).
"This year we are offering half price glasses of Frosé as well as tastes of our Rosé on tap and Govino glassware bundles," Deegan shared. "We are also offering complimentary ground shipping for online rosé purchases (on June 8th only) in honor of National Rosé Day!"
"We're excited to welcome two new crawl partners this year, Shinn Estate and Sherwood House Vineyards. Their rosés are delicious and their venues are beautiful. It's going to be a good one!" Opisso added.
Admission to the North Fork Rosé Crawl is $20 per person, which includes tastes of rosé at each winery. The Crawl will take place during winery hours. The rain date is Sunday, June 9.
