BLUSH Rose Fest, Arizona’s first international Rose festival, officially kicks off summer on National Rose Day, Saturday, June 9. The inaugural experience, held in the cool indoors of The Clayton House in downtown Scottsdale, features three sessions during which guests are welcomed to enjoy unlimited samples and food pairings, learn from authorities in the wine industry, listen to live music and snap as many Instagrammable moments as their hearts’ desire.
With one of the largest portfolios of Rose wines, BLUSH is honored to partner with presenting sponsor Young’s Market Company on this first annual event. Over 75 Rose wines from all around the world will be poured from morning ’til night, including sparkling varieties and cocktails made with Rose infused spirits.
BLUSH Rose Fest is also proud to feature local restaurants and chefs as part of this first annual event including:
- Chef Derek Christensen, Moonrise Standard – VIP Brunch + Evening Sessions
- The Montauk – General Admission Brunch Session
- Farm & Craft – General Admission Afternoon Session
The sounds of BLUSH Rose Fest will be provided by:
- Dueling Pianos by Bridge Sound Entertainment – VIP Brunch + Evening Sessions
- DJ AJ Slim – General Admission Brunch Session
- Latin Guitarist, Alex Hristov – General Admission Afternoon Session
- Urban Electra – General Admission Evening Session
In addition to the many tastes and sounds of the day, roaming sommeliers provided by the wine experts at Vinum 55 will be on hand during each session to educate and enhance the guests’ experience as they explore the spectrum of Rose’s unique and unexpected characteristics. The event will even have its own app for guests to keep track of their favorite Roses and jot down tasting notes as they sample.
Beauty abounds at BLUSH, offering endless photo opps from the many shades of Rose wines, floral centerpieces and vibrant dishes crafted by the event’s restaurants and chefs. Guests will most certainly bring their fashion “A” game donning pink and white attire and enjoy plenty of Instagram-worthy opportunities in front of several oversized backdrops. With over ten dedicated selfie areas in total, guests can strike a pose and get playful inside the VW Bus photo booth, in front of Union Wine Co.’s Underwood van, alongside the floral and ivy walls, or lounging in the Rose sponsored conversation areas to name just a few.
The event will also feature a Pink Boutique from which guests can indulge in Rose themed baubles – from flavored gummy bears, bath salts, loungewear and candles to exclusive gift items and apparel.
