Bistro Provence presents La Vie en Rosé
Bistro Provence, one of Houston’s first and finest French bistros featuring the unique foods of Provence, will host its fifth annual La Vie en Rosé, a wine dinner featuring selected rosé wines imported by Houston’s own unique winery, French Country Wines.
The Tuesday dinner, created by owner Genevieve Guy, will pair five superb wines with a five-course French Provence menu. Special guests for the evening will be French Country Wines’ owners Tim Smith and Phyllis Adatto who will introduce each of the wines.
Historically rosé was quite a delicate, dry wine, perfect for drinking during the heat of summer. After World War II, however, the popularity of medium-sweet wines began to rule the market and today, many Americans still identify these with rosJ wines. Now, the pendulum has swung back towards a drier, 'bigger' style, well demonstrated by the wines to be presented at this dinner.
