‘Tis the time to drink rose. (OK, we think it’s ALWAYS the time to drink rose, but in the heat of the summer, it’s especially hard to resist.) And while we’ve loved rose always, this summer everyone has decided to agree that the pink stuff is a-okay. This is the year that it’s really hit the big time.
So chances are, you’re also seeing more rose this year. And drinking more. And taking more to parties and BBQs and vacations. Make your life easy. Save yourself a few trips to the store (not that we don’t love to see you) and just BUY A CASE! It’s easy math.
First, you’ll save time. You’ll always have a bottle on hand. Last minute BBQ invitation? Grab a bottle. The in-laws pop by? Pop open a bottle. Playdate filled with screaming 3 year olds? Pop open a bottle (or three). Forgot the wine store doesn’t open at 6AM, before you have to take off for the weekend? No worries… Starting to see the logic?
Second, you’ll save money. We’re offering the Gobelsburger Rose Cistercien 2014 our favorite, top-selling rose for $168 a case. Just a little over $14/bottle, vs. the regular $15.99. (For those doing the math, that's a 12% discount - 12 bottles. 1% for each. Or something like that.)
As for the wine, it’s dry, with subtle fruit, similar to a Provencal rose but a little fresher and zippier – like air-conditioning in a bottle. And who couldn’t use a little liquid air-conditioning.
Save time. Save money. Totally, completely logical.
