Iron Chef Marc Forgione Will Release His Own Rosé Wine Label
Michelin-rated restaurateur and Iron Chef Marc Forgione will release his own label of rosé wine on Monday, April 14th. The wine, a 2013 Anne Pichon Rosé, Gris Montagne from Côtes de Ventoux, France, will be available exclusively at Restaurant Marc Forgione in New York City next week.
The wine will also soon be available at Forgione’s other restaurants in New York City and Atlantic City.
"This rosé is very fresh and crisp with hints of strawberry and herbs but balanced by poignant minerality," said Forgione.[related]
The chef’s personal collection also includes the 2012 Chateau Maris Picpoul, Languedoc, France; and the 2011 Alain Gueneau Sancerre Rouge, Loire Valley, France.
Chef Forgione, who earned a Michelin star in 2010, 2011, and 2012 for Restaurant Marc Forgione, is the youngest American-born chef to do so for three consecutive years. He is also the youngest Iron Chef to win the title. Forgione’s first cookbook, Marc Forgione, Recipes and Stories From the Acclaimed Chef and Restaurant, will be released on April 29th.
