It is a typical summer weekend here in Seattle, with the sun playing peekaboo from behind the clouds. This weekend at Madrona Wine we have the bases covered with a lineup of wines for those sun showers as well as couple hearty reds to brighten the greys.
Saturday is National Rosé Day! I’m not making this up. National Rosé Day is a very silly holiday but one we don’t mind celebrating year-round. Today we’ll be pouring two Rosés as well as several other wines that fit the summer season.
