If you’re a fan of rosés—and, frankly, during hot summer months, who isn’t?—then you’ll want to hightail it to The Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage for its wine tasting devoted to this elegant varietal. The event will be held at the resort’s signature restaurant State Fare Bar & Kitchen between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 23.
For $25, you’ll get to sample three-ounce pours of five distinct fine rosés—what a bargain! And if you don’t want to get tipsy on the grape juice while the sun still shines, know that State Fare will have both its lunch and bar menus available should you decide to purchase a something to nosh on.
Just some of the famously yummy offerings include Hass Avocado Fries served with tomatillo salsa and red chili aioli, Short Rib Sliders, the handcrafted Coachella Pizza (dates, goat cheese, roasted garlic, and kale), Fish & Chips, and Executive Chef Bruno Lopez’ State Fare Prime Burger topped by Hopscotch Cheddar and a house-made onion-bacon jam on a pretzel bun.
The more calorie-conscious among us may partake in such lighter meals as the Grilled Pear Salad, Seared Ahi Tuna, or Cavatappi (a vegetable ragout in a light marinara sauce accompanied by an herb salad).
Come one, come all, and let us raise a toast. Oh, and don’t forget that there’s complimentary valet parking at the Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage 365 days a year!
