On Sunday, April 17th, we attended the 2nd (hopefully Annual!) Healdsburg Pink Party. It was held – for the first time – in the beautiful Garden at Studio Barndiva. In addition, we couldn’t have asked for a better day from Mother Nature! It was the perfect start to Rosé Season. #roséallday
The event (co-produced by Banshee Wines) featured new releases of rosé from seventeen Sonoma County wineries. It was such a lovely event with most attendees getting the memo to wear their pink frocks. The Barndiva waitstaff expertly passed small bites that paired nicely with the rosés – a favorite standout being the goat cheese croquettes with lavender honey.
For those of you, like us!, who can’t wait for next year’s party, at least two wineries have upcoming events surrounding their own release(s) in May. Be sure to check out both Front Porch Farm (a plant sale is included in their party) as well as the release of Lumia – by famed winemaker Jessica Boone from Passalacqua, where her party will also be held. Please note that while there may be no cost to attend, these events do require an RSVP/reservation.
If we were forced to choose favorites of the seventeen or so different rosés being poured, we would pick the following (of course, in no particular order.)
