With so many delicious examples of Maryland rosé we’ll jump on any opportunity to indulge ourselves. A proclamation from winegeeks.com suggests today, August 14, is International Rosé Day. If you have any Maryland rosés on hand, today is a great day to enjoy.
At the 2018 Maryland Comptroller’s Cup, several Maryland wineries were awarded medals for rosés that we’re sure you’ll enjoy. (Check directly with the wineries to be sure they still have bottles of these award-winning examples of Rosé available for sale.)
