A date has been announced for one of the more popular annual winery events of spring.

The third annual North Fork Rosé Crawl is back on Saturday, June 9 in celebration of National Rosé Day. The self-guided tour offers tastes of rosé and rosé-themed treats at four North Fork wineries. This years stops include Bridge Lane Wine, Palmer Vineyards, Lenz Winery and The Tap Room at Corey Creek.

Bridge Lane will offer rosé cocktails for purchase along with complimentary tasting of its light, fruit-forward 2017 rosé.

“There’s been a ton of enthusiasm for the event since its first year, and our fans started asking about this one almost as soon as the last one ended,” said Lieb Cellars general manager Ami Opisso. “There are excellent dry rosés being made on the North Fork. The ‘crawl’ format encourages attendees to visit multiple tasting rooms and get a sense for the caliber of our rosés across the board and for our collaborative regional spirit.”

Palmer will offer tastes of its 2017 merlot rosé. Lenz will be pouring 2016 Blanc de Noir paired with chocolate treats and Corey Creek will serve 2017 Bedell Cellars Taste Rosé in addition to $5 glasses of frosé available for purchase.

Pre-sale tickets are $15 and can be purchased here through Wednesday, May 30. Participants receive a “North Fork Rosé Crawl” button via mail, which serves as their ticket for the crawl and nets them tastes of rosé at each winery.

Tickets purchased the day of the event are $20 and are available at the Bridge Lane tasting room beginning at noon. The event goes all day per winery hours.
