'Rosés Around the World' Event At Apothecary 330 Lets Diners Sample Wines, Bites And Chocolates For Free
Yes way, rosé.
That’s what you'll likely be saying after the latest installment of the Tastemakers series at Apothecary 330 in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
On Thursday, June 16, locals are invited to sample five different rosé wines paired with appetizers created by neighboring Pizza Craft chef Dan Hernandez and sweet treats from Hoffman’s Chocolates.
During the event, attendees will enjoy Banfi wines from Oregon, Chile, France and Italy, as well Italian-inspired bites, chocolate-covered pretzels and chocolate sea salt caramels.
“Rosés Around the World” is the fifth installment in JEY Hospitality Group’s Tastemakers series, which in the past has featured several whiskey and cigar pairings. The switch was meant to give patrons “the option to try something a bit different.”
If you tend to shy away from rosé because of its color, don’t let the blush tone fool you. Pink doesn’t necessarily mean sweet, Pizza Craft and Apothecary 330 general manager Scott Kurzawinski noted.
“Most quality rosés are actually dry to off-dry, both stylish and sophisticated, and come from a variety of grapes/regions around the globe,” he said. “They pair nicely with light summer foods, [barbecue], salads and oysters, so we will be serving bite-sized pairings of such items.”
While there's no charge for the event, patrons are encouraged to tip the wait staff.
To RSVP, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 954.616.8028.
