Wine, etc.: Consider rosé as a wine for food

Kathleen Inman remembers the time when she had to twist arms in her tasting room to get people to try her rosé.
Too many people had associated a pink wine with the sugary blush wines that had finally passed out of style. But in 2013, “suddenly people turned on a light switch and rosé was a great wine to have,” she said.
Rosé is well past the arm-twisting stage as sales show. The new challenge, Inman said, is to get people to see rosé as a food wine.
“I’m an evangelist of getting people to treat rosé as a wine to take seriously year-round,” she said.
