Wine Wednesday: Refosco Rosato From Channing Daughters

IMG_9975

Today’s wine of the week is made with an Italian grape from Friuli Venezia Giulia, Refosco, but it’s made on the South Fork of Long Island by the talented Chris Tracy, the winemaker and co-owner of the winery. I tried this lovely wine along with a few other rose’s or rosatos they make at the NY Drinks NY event in May. Apparently they have a whole rose project. My family used to have a home o Bridgehampton close to that winery. It was one of the first I ever had from Long Island and together with wines from a couple of others, definitely producers my favorite wines. They also use many Italian varieties I am partial to and that is always interesting to me. As Rose season is upon us, this one is a good bet and something different. Here is a list of places to find the wines near you.
