One event I look forward to each year is Vintage Hollywood, an annual food and wine tasting event that takes place each June. This past week was the 18th annual Vintage Hollywood. I have had the pleasure to be involved with the event for 14 of those years and it is this week's Please The Palate pick of the week. Vintage Hollywood was created in 2002. It was the fundraising event of Children's Action Network and then it became the Vintage Hollywood foundation, an independent 501c3. The goal of Vintage Hollywood is to support charitable organizations, both large and small, that work to promote the health and well-being of Southern California’s diverse community. Since 2002, the Vintage Hollywood event has raised more than $3,500,000 to benefit organizations including Children’s Action Network, JDRF, Save the Children, United Friends of Children, OPCC and The People’s Concern. And for 2019, Go Campaign was the designated organization.
National Rosé Day may be on the second Saturday in June, but every day is a good day to drink rosé, and especially during the summer. One rosé to try is Domaine de Cala. From Provence, France, but paying homage to Los Angeles, Domaine de Cala is a young brand, having recently released their fourth vintage, but has a great name behind it. Enjoy the story that I originally wrote about in the Napa Valley Register and share here. Rosé season is officially here. While we now drink rosé year-round, it is ideal to drink in the summer months. The sun is shining, the temperatures are warm, and a glass of pink wine is refreshing, enjoyable and has the ability to pair with a wide range of foods.
When I was invited into the Los Angeles home of renowned chef Joachim Splichal for dinner, celebrating the new rosé releases from his estate winery, Domaine de Cala, I could not resist.
