The restaurateur and star of TV\u2019s Vanderpump Rules dishes on her signature ros\u00e9.\r\n\r\nYou\u2019ve been in the hospitality industry for years. What are your thoughts on ros\u00e9\u2019s stardom?\r\n\r\nOur family has been drinking dry ros\u00e9 well before it was \u201ctrendy\u201d in America. Living in the South of France 15 years ago, beautiful Provence-style ros\u00e9 had been free-flowing and featured in every meal\u2026\r\n\r\nWhen we created our Vanderpump Ros\u00e9, we wanted to make sure ours was a classic C\u00f4tes de Provence wine, with all the history and flavors that the South of France has to offer.\r\n\r\nCan you share your thoughts on the phenomenon of trends driving which wines people drink?\r\n\r\nI think there are pros and cons. We are lucky enough to live in a world with the internet, which gives people access to much more knowledge about wine. And it gives smaller brands a much wider audience, so I think people are trying and tasting a lot more wines, which is great.\r\n\r\nHowever, it can mean that a lot of people are drinking wines based on their Instagram pages, other than their history and flavor profile.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDo you have any upcoming releases?\r\n\r\nAs much as we love our French ros\u00e9, we\u2019ve lived in California for the last 14 years and have always loved the wine here, and we knew we wanted to work on some projects closer to home.\r\n\r\nSo we are beyond excited to be launching a delicious Sonoma County Cabernet, along with a beautiful estate-grown Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, coming this spring. There aren\u2019t too many Cabernets and Chardonnays that are elegant and delicious but still affordable, so we wanted to create something luxurious but still an everyday possibility.\r\n\r\nWhat are you most excited about, right now, in the wine world?\r\n\r\nThe food and beverage industries always seem to be very cyclical\u2026 Post-recession, we saw a lot of communal tables, small plates, tapas, more obscure wines.\r\n\r\nBut lately, we\u2019ve noticed a big shift back to Old World classics\u2014white tablecloths, old-fashioned cocktails, an emphasis on mixology and quite classic grapes like Chardonnay and Cabernet making a resurgence.
