Warmer days and endless gatherings with friends and family offer the perfect reason for Rosé which has become the wine synonymous with Summer on Martha’s Vineyard.
On many of the Island’s package store shelves, you’ll find MVY Rosé. Not only is the bottle eye-catching, but every bottle sold does a little good. From each bottle, $1.00 is donated to the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club. We are thrilled to see this incredible gift to an organization that is near and dear to our hearts at Point B Realty.
MVY Rosé is a small batch, private label beautiful, pale Rosé with notes of raspberries, and a crisp finish. The wine is from Provence France where it is grown in the traditional Provencal fashion. The are is known for its beautiful grapes to create the perfect Rosé (with Grenache and Syrah grapes). It is definitely a perfect wine – from the beach to dinner parties. This wine is sure to become a staple this Summer.
The man behind MVY Rosé is Kevin Mehra, the founder of Latitude Beverage Company and the brand 90+ Cellars. He is passionate about wines and has an affection not only for Martha’s Vineyard but also Nantucket. You can find ACK Rosé as well, and $1.00 from each bottle goes to the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club.
MVY and ACK Rosé are the first wines released in Kevin’s line of Places Wine. He and his team have carefully selected some of the most beautiful places in the country to highlight. What better way to introduce Places then in too of the most iconic Summer places!
Also we love the idea of a beautiful Rosé with a modest price point ($19.00 – $20.00) that’s a limited addition and that helps our Boys & Girls Club. There are only 9,000 bottles of MVY Rosé. Once they’re gone, that’s it. If every bottle is sold, the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club will receive a donation for $9,000! That’s a lot of money that can do a lot of good for hundreds of Island kids.
MVY Rosé is sure to become the Rosé of the Summer. Think hostess gift as well – who wouldn’t want that beautiful label in their wine collection? Also, know that you’re doing good with every bottle you buy.
MVY Rosé is available at Rosewater Wine & Spirits, Our Market, Your Market, and many other Island package stores. I met with Julia Celeste, owner of Rosewater, to learn about MVY Rosé. She likes the concept behind the wine and that it helps an Island non-profit.
Throughout the Summer season, keep an eye out for special events with MVY Rosé and Rosewater Wine & Spirits. The first one is a pretty awesome.
On Saturday, May 26th, Rosewater is hosting a MVY Rosé tasting and book signing with Nantucket author, Elin Hilderbrand. Sip and savor and meet this well known author of Summer beach reads Elin grew up Summering on the Cape and has lived in Nantucket since 1993. One of her novels, The Identicals is about twin sisters – one who grew up on Martha’s Vineyard and one who grew up on Nantucket – I bet this is a fun read!
