Close your eyes and imagine summer breezes blowing through your hair as you sail on a yacht, sipping elegant rosé and nibbling on gourmet treats.Thanks to the organizers of La Nuit en Rosé, this chic daydream can be a reality. A three-day festival (June 25-27) hosted aboard the Hornblower Infinity Yacht in New York City, La Nuit en Rosé is the world's first festival dedicated entirely to rosé wines and champagne and more than 100 wines will be featured. Granted, the Hudson River may not be the Riviera but it is still pretty lovely and you can't go wrong with rosé + a yacht!

“Rosé is more than just a wine category, it is a way of life and that’s what unique about rosé. Rosé has made itself inseparable from a summer gathering, a pool party or a barbecue. Close your eyes and sip rosé, you’re immediately transported into a summer paradise. Drinking rosé is the epitome of chic!” - Pierrick Bouquet, co-creator of La Nuit en Rosé.

The international cast of winemakers participating in La Nuit en Rosé includes Champagne Nicolas Feuillate, Domaine Montrose, Wines of Greece, Wines of Navarra, and many more. La Nuit en Rosé will also showcase cuisine from acclaimed New York City chefs and restaurants - including Geoffrey Zakarian,The Lambs Club, The National, STK, Fig & Olive, Le District, and others. For an extra serving of chic, the VIP lounge will feature an Oyster Bar and a Bubble & Truffle Bar presented by Ferrari and Urbani Truffles.
