Looking for a Weekend Cocktail? Let The Polo Bar Provide

Looking for a Weekend Cocktail? Let The Polo Bar Provide

By Elise Taylor August 6, 2020 Want a drink right about now? You might as well make it one from The Polo Bar. Since opening in 2015, the midtown restaurant has held steady as one of the hottest reservations in New York thanks to its stylish equestrian decor, scrumptious offerings, and celeb-heavy crowd. (It helps that Ralph Lauren has hosted many a launch there.)

General manager Darnell Dodson has curated a list of...

Cool Hunting: The Pink Experience From Provence’s Chateau Gassier

Cool Hunting: The Pink Experience From Provence’s Chateau Gassier

  "Radiating from the base of France‘s Mount Sainte-Victoire, the estate vineyards and winery for Château Gassier produces some of the most exemplary rosé wines in the Provence region—from fresh and fun to round and complementary. In fact, their unique microclimate and position within the Arc Valley affords all of these wines the specific designation as a Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire—a sub-appellation recognized since ’05. And here, Château Gassier welcomes guests into their home, granting lovers of rosé a detailed, dynamic and quite pink peek into their produce and products. Across their 40-hectare estate vineyard—planted with Grenache, Cinsault, Rolle and Syrah—a terroir of clay and limestone gives way...

Rosé All Day… and All Year

Rosé All Day… and All Year

Rosé is no longer pigeonholed into summertime and garrigue-seasoned white meats. Americans take rosé seriously now, and this can mostly be attributed to the one region that’s been "treating rosé as a formidable wine since the 14th century—Provence. There, rosé accounts for over 89% of wine production, and many vignerons tend to favor the direct press method. This, "combined with a sunny...

Berger on wine: Rosé on the rise in California

"One of the most important long-term trends in California wine over the last decade has been the dramatic rise in both the quality and volume of rosé wines. The fastest growth in the category "seems to be in the last three years, with almost every winery that has a tasting room making at least a small amount of rosé, and many making a lot of it. Rosé has been around for decades, but "great rosé is a recent phenomenon. Today, it has reached a pinnacle of quality that is hard to describe. I first discovered that rosé was better than...

Should You Drink Yacht Rosé?

Should You Drink Yacht Rosé?

"Is any pink wine worth $100? There’s a musical genre from the late '70s/early '80s dubbed yacht rock: smooth, heavilyproduced music made by virtuoso musicians in expensive recording studios. "Think Steely Dan, Hall & Oates and the Doobie Brothers. And to drink on your yacht with such music? There can be only one candidate: Provençal rosé, the more expensive the better. "You can’t "miss these wines in your local store. They come in a bewildering array of bottles resembling amphorae and bowling pins, with squaredoff shoulders and some even entirely square. "Then there’s the distinctive color: Provençal rosés have to...

A Pair of Perfect Pink Potables from Provençe

A Pair of Perfect Pink Potables from Provençe

“For decades, many Americans who professed to take their wine drinking seriously reacted with indignation or disgust on being presented a glass of rosé. This prejudice against pink wine probably harks back to a time when the best that hosts could muster was a bottle of Lancers. Only in the last decade has rosé begun to be rehabilitated in the eyes of the country’s oenophiles… “Another release that exhibits Provençal rosé’s perfections is Château Gassier 2015 Le Pas du Moine Rosé ($25, chateau-gassier.com), which comes from an estate in the foothills of Montagne Sainte-Victoire currently managed by the fifth winemaking...
