I honestly can’t believe that my blog is going to be five years old next month. That makes me five years older when I started! As I was sitting down and sipping this glorious Wine of the Week, Rosé of Pinot Noir from Travessia, my mind wandered to my first encounter with this winery, at the Coastal Wine Trail kickoff event shortly after I started my blog. Umm, my photos have gotten slightly better than my post about the event then, but my palate still loves Travessia, and we have enjoyed seeing this Massachusetts winery grow and succeed over the years. It was the Travessia Rosé that really got me the first time and what made us sign up for the wine club and head down to New Bedford for the first wine club event.
This 2013 Massachusetts Rosé of Pinot Noir is one of the best rosé wines I have had ever, from anywhere. I have said this about rosé before, but it is summer in a glass, and this one is so perfect chilled on a sunny day. The color of this wine is vibrant and fun, and it’s nice and dry with some juicy, bold strawberry and raspberry notes. It’s easy to drink, so easy that we tend to bring out a bottle anytime we have company, even when it doesn’t feel summery out. We’re going through our stash of “boat wine” before boat season even begins!
I’ve recommended it before, but visiting Massachusetts wineries makes for a great day trip/half day after a visit to Horseneck Beach. As you start to plan your Massachusetts day trips for the summer, here are a few posts on what you might expect.
