Self-Taught Genius Bar | Rosé Wines & Rose Quilts—SOLD OUT

At the Self-Taught Genius Gallery
Long Island City, Queens

**This program is now sold out. To join the waitlist, please email stggallery@folkartmuseum.org.** 

We’re extending rosé season into September this year with this special Self-Taught Genius Bar program, sponsored by Archer Roose Wines! Begin your evening with a crash course in Rosé 101. Learn about the varietals and processes behind the wine, and put your knowledge to the test with ample tasting pours.

You will discover that the beauty of rosé is that it pairs with everything—even quilts! The presentation will be followed by a short gallery talk on rose motifs in quilts that delves into the history and symbolism of the iconic bloom.

Please note that this program takes place on the second floor, which is accessed by stairs. For participants who require an elevator, please email stggallery@folkartmuseum.org to make arrangements in advance.

 

Named for Edith Wharton’s Newland Archer and Teddy Roosevelt, Archer Roose Wines is inspired by the boundary pushers, feather rufflers, and unconventional explorers. Co-founders Marian and Dave purposefully designed their wines to be as well-suited for fine dining as they are for unrefined adventuring. By becoming their own importers and using alternative packaging, Archer Roose is able to ship wine in bulk to the United States at a much lower cost, meaning luxury-at-a-discount-wines in planet-friendly formats. Since 2015, Marian and Dave haven’t lost the clear ambition and adventurous spirit on which Archer Roose was founded. They continue to scour the best wine regions in the world to find partners who produce varietals every bit as luxurious as they are respectful to the environment.
