DESCRIPTION

This summer, Garage Rooftop pavilion will host themed wine tastings led by Garage Café’s head bartender Anna Rumyantseva, who has worked with wine for over six years in Russia and abroad.

Anna has put together a series of sessions about various winemaking phenomena. Every Friday, guests will be able to try a new set on Garage Rooftop while Anna discusses themes such as how long the rosé renaissance is going to last, the criteria for choosing wine for a home collection, why the vine must suffer, and why wines Aligoté and Muscat will soon be back on the menu in every restaurant. As well wines by Russian producers traditionally offered at Garage Café, the tastings will cover some of the most interesting wines from Australia to Canada.

Rosé is this season’s hit

In recent decades the image of rosé wines has changed markedly: from frivolous “summer water” that was of no interest to sommeliers and wine critics to a fashionable drink with the potential for aging and with high scores in the key ratings. At this tasting we will try the best rosé wines from across the world—blush, clairet, ramato, and “gray” wines.
