Wine Director, Bob Ecker

 “Rose Today is edifying, exciting, zesty.  Not simply a chance encounter, Rose is a wine that’s come of age. The 2017 Competition (in its 4th year) brings together the very best of breed; as both domestic and international wines compete head to head.  And like fine Rose wines, the double blind Competition itself is always a colorful and fun affair.  Eager to determine the most sublime and wonderful Rose wines on the market, our experienced wine judges are up to the task.”

Producer, Craig Palmer

 “Rosé Today is a celebration of and resource for the wonderful world of rosé wine. We host the West Coast’s preeminent rosé wine competition, an annual Country Garden Party, and a robust, interactive media platform. Our mission is to pair your unique lifestyle with the exuberance of this infinitely adaptable and always delightful wine. How do you pair rosé?”
