Spring always seems slow to start but summer approaches quickly bringing sunshine, outdoor dining and holidays aplenty.
Luckily, the summer season seems to be extending longer each year, giving us more time to soak up late sunsets and beachside bonfires sipping new releases and lauded vintages in some of the most stunning settings.
From Krug-fuelled pop-up dinner parties around the US to a brand-new Möet Hennessy four-floor cocktail experience in Paris, we’ve pulled together a list of haute happenings in the wine world sure to make this summer one of the best yet.
SIP CHÂTEAU D’ESCLANS ROSÉ AT WINEMAKER DINNERS AND BEACHSIDE BONFIRES IN THE HAMPTONS
This summer, Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa in the Hamptons will host a trio of winemaker dinners paired alongside wine from Provence’s Château d’Esclans, the birthplace of Whispering Angel and Rock Angel.
Executive chef Christopher Watts will craft five, farm-fresh, seasonally-driven courses designed to pair with the iconic rosés, and the evening will end in true South of France style with a beachside bonfire. Upcoming dinners will take place July 21 and Sept. 1; $275 per person (tickets here).
