Become a Rosé Expert (The Magic of Provence Rosé)
What you'll learn
- How rosé is made (here you will learn things that are not normally covered in wine courses)
- How rosé is blended (very important in Provence, where all rosés are blends!)
- What is in Provence rosé and how Provence rosé is different from other blush wines
- French etiquette around serving and drinking rosé at the table - avoid faux pas and drink rosé like a French aristocrat!
Quickly become a rosé expert in this course! Understand what's in it, how it’s made, how it’s blended, and French etiquette around serving and enjoying it with friends. Taught by a Provence resident who works in the wine business.
If you are just learning about wine, this course is great because it will also help you understand wine in general, not just rosé. And if you are already wine savvy, this course offers some additional pearls of insight.
It's crazy how much confusing information is out there about rosé. They say rosé is not a blend of red and white wine, and yet it's hard to get a straight answer about why some rosés have white grapes in them like Vermentino. Some people say White Zinfandel is a rosé, and others say it is not. Who’s right?
I’m here to cut through the confusion and set the record straight. This course contains “insider” information about Provence rosé that you won’t find anywhere else. The knowledge you gain will help you derive even more pleasure from rosé!
Psalm 104:14-15 says that God made “plants for people to cultivate— bringing forth food from the earth: wine that gladdens human hearts, oil to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their hearts.” Wine has been with humanity since the very beginning (Adam himself made wine and presumably learned the skill from God himself!) so what better topic to be knowledgeable about? It makes our hearts glad!
Who this course is for:
- Wine lovers interested in learning more about rosé in general, and Provence rosé in particular
- People interested in French culture and French wine etiquette
Michèle Foster is the creator of Solière rosé, an estate-grown AOP rosé from Provence. Her passion for both Provence and rosé began when she moved to the region in 2007. Originally from Texas and a frequent international traveler, Michèle grew frustrated with the paucity of good rosé available outside of France and decided to do something about it by creating Solière rosé, exclusively for export. After creating Solière rosé, she noticed that there was a lot of misinformation about Provence rosé floating around in the marketplace, so she decided to do something about that, too, and created this course. Her goal in creating The Magic of Provence Rosé is to foster a fuller appreciation and enjoyment of Provence rosé and Provence as a region.
