If Rosé Day in Los Angeles wasn’t enough, I was so lucky to be attend the Food and Wine Classic in Aspen! I’m so proud of my good friends Tommy Tollesson and Jules Dreyf who were able to turn their passion for wine into a beautiful balanced sweetness of Entourage Rose. Honestly, if you haven’t checked out their wine, you’re missing out! The bottle has such a fresh and clean design it’s hard not to pick it up and give it a try.
I was able to learn from incredible chefs who were showcasing some of their best plates as well as taste new wine. I really enjoy being exposed to new wine because every bottle is different and provides a new experience. I’ve been exposed to wine on both ends of the spectrum. I’ve had some “bad” wine during my time at UCLA (Barefoot and two buck chuck from Trader Joes) and some really high-end bottles. What i’ve learned from all of this is that wine can’t really be that “bad” when you’re sharing it with good people. Although the “bad” ones weren’t as delicious as others, they still provide the chance to be social and create unforgettable memories. I will say, if you have the chance to get your hands on a higher brand wine, don’t let that chance go!
Aside from eating great food and drinking delicious wine, I was able to meet some pretty amazing people that I now consider friends. Sterling McDavid was an incredible host, and I’m sure everyone enjoyed her beautiful home. If you have the time check out the Starling Project and purchase a soy candle. This project aims to bring life-saving solar energy to families in need. Obviously, my favorite scent is Rosé All Day.
The Food and Wine Classic was such a great event and I’m so glad that I was able to attend. I know i’ll be back next year!
