JUST FIVE MINUTES FROM THE 5

From the 5 Freeway

Take the I-5 freeway to Lomas Santa Fe Exit at Solana Beach. Head East. After one mile, you will come to the first stop sign. From this point, the road begins to wind and curve, continue going another four miles to the second stop sign. Go through this intersection and we are the first building on the right, in the Country Squire Courtyard. (Lomas Santa Fe turns into Paseo Delicias).

From 15 Freeway

Exit Via Rancho Parkway. Head West. Follow this road for about three miles to the end. Turn left onto Del Dios Highway and follow for twelve miles. You will come to a four way stop, keep going straight another four blocks into the village. Mille Fleurs is on the left in the Country Squire Courtyard. (Del Dios Highway turns into Paseo Delicias).

From Encinitas

Travel east on Encinitas Blvd. Once you pass the Harvest Ranch Market, just beyond the intersection of Rancho Santa Fe Road and Encinitas Blvd, you will travel over a small bridge and will come to a stop sign, turn right. Follow this winding road until you come to the second stop sign. Turn right onto Avienda De Acacias. Go two blocks and turn left onto Paseo Delicias. Mille Fleurs is on the right in the Country Squire Courtyard.

In the Mediterranean countries, rosé is synonym of summer, it is typically dry and displays fresh fruit flavors usually leaning to strawberry, raspberry or peaches.

Of course most wine connoisseurs will sneer when rosé is mentioned, but sales are on the rise in the US: think of it as nice, crisp, fairly low in alcohol wine, a perfect aperitif, then it grows on you and before you know it, you have enjoyed your rosé throughout the meal, as I often do!

In fact while recently vacationing in St Barth, we drank rosé every meal- just like everyone else- all the restaurants were offering at least a dozen different bottlings.

Rosés, although having to overcome the image problem brought on by the dreaded “white zinfandel stigma,” are perhaps the most versatile and food-friendly wines around.

The wines are the product of keeping the red grape juices in very short contact with red grape skins, typically 2 or 3 days.

Rosés are wonderful substitute to the heavy Chardonnays or big reds and of course, as a rule, they are much more affordable.

The shelves of our local wine shops will give you lots of choices: US growers are steadily introducing more “not white Zin” rosés. My favorites (inspired by my origins: I was weaned on them!) are from Provence, Languedoc and the Rhone. The Loire rosés are are also an option to taste but have the tendency to be sweeter.

So, I’d encourage you to buy a few different bottles and experiment.  I know you’ll enjoy it and I hope you thank me for it!

Rosé: Santé!
