National Rosé Day AND a birthday celebration? Count me in! This past June I was lucky to celebrate my birthday with my closest friends and family, and it was one to remember (especially after COVID and not having parties with more than 3-4 pals at a time). Since it was also National Rosé Day, I of course had to make sure the two went hand in hand. All of my wonderful guests (all dressed in pink of course) enjoyed a selection of 25 of my favorite Rosé wines and amazing food.
Make sure to check out my amazing photos courtesy of my lovely Photographer & friend, Elise Aileen Photo below and read more about this special day.
Celebrating National Rosé Day

Look at us rocking that pink! Let me tell you, Rosé seems to taste even better when you are decked out in pink from head to toe.
National Rosé Day & These Fabulous Rosé Wines
Like I mentioned earlier, I was lucky to have 25 brands who I hand-picked and invited to share samples to be a part of my National Rosé Day birthday party. From traveling and tasting over the years, I have such an extensive list of favorite Rosé and it seemed only fitting to have such a large selection present for my friends and families to try.
As you all know, I am a wine connoisseur and love to try every type of Sparkling wine whether from California, Champagne, Franciacorta, or more. Curious to learn more about Champagne? Read my Best Champagne Wineries to visit post here and read all about the stunning

Some more incredible Rosé included Ultimate Provence, Seawolf, Rabble and Papapietro Perry! The rest of our favorite Rosé is pictured below. Speaking of Papapietro Perry, check out my Top 10 Dry Creek WIneries post here featuring them and many more of my favorites.
Here we have Kind of Wild (a fabulous new organic brand my friends launched), French Blue, Grandeur, Château de Berne and Banshee Rosé. The two French Rosé wines were both super light in style and a true Provencial style Rosé (my absolute favorite light and elegant style).
We also served J. Bucher, Freixenet, Une Femme, Three Sticks and Kobler Estate. These are all California brands that I adore. Read more Three Sticks on my Top 10 Sonoma Wineries post here and Bucher Wines in my Bucher Wines Blogger Event at Grand Cru post here.
To round up the selection of Rosé we served the amazing Ferrari Carano, Cep Wines from Peay Vineyard, Donum Estate and Fèlsina. As you can see, the guests had a lot to choose from!
Delicious Food and Desserts
I was so happy to have incredible and tasty bites at my birthday. My favorite part was definitely the dessert options that were both stunning to look at and also delicious. They were almost too pretty to eat!
We served some to-die for cookies from the local Noble Folk Healdsburg Bakery which is featured in my Best Healdsburg Bakeries blog post. And from Fort Lauderdale, Florida we catered an incredible fluffy cake and stunning cupcakes from We Take The Cake. I am actually dreaming of these special treats right now…
I couldn’t be more grateful to be surrounded by so many amazing people while also celebrating with my favorite bottles of Rosé wine. Cheers to milestones, celebrations and good times!
