Having a lot more to offer than pretty backdrops and hashtags, Rosé Mansion prides themselves on providing thorough vino facts while still allowing you the freedom to enjoy their multi-themed rooms. The Mansion is Manhattan's unique spin on a wine tasting experience, without the trip to the countryside. At least for the next month or so that is. This particular attraction closes its doors in October, with tickets selling out every day don't wait around and miss your chance.

Who wouldn't benefit from a little wine education? With so many different areas of the world, all with their own take on rosé, there are a few misconceptions.
A rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the colors from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine and is actually the oldest type as it's the most straightforward. The museum's colorful rooms will walk you through the learning process about rosé, teaching you the different scents and flavors. Sounds pretty dope, amirite?!
The museum also shows you the difference between still wine and sparkling, which is just the second fermentation process. There are actually 7 different types of sparkling wine that are produced worldwide, with certain countries preferring different methods. For example, the United States prefers the traditional method which is sometimes referred to as the 'Classic Method'. The traditional method goes through two fermentations, rest anywhere from 9 months to several years, and then a final process called remuage.
Oh, and for the bougie, Betty's with the pinkies up, sparkling wine is actually only classified as champagne if it came from actual Champagne, France. #themoreyouknow
Remuage is the purging of dead yeast cells and other particles that emerge during fermentation. If that was a lot to take in, the next room provides you with some sparkling wine to wash it down.

Granted, most would be sold on just the shots of wine followed by back to back scenic displays. Although personal photo shoot spreads aside, Rosé Mansion is both fun and educational-- but most definitely on our end of Summer 18’s list of things to do. See ya there?!
