But What About The Rosé?

The New York Post reported that the Hamptons are running dry on our drink of summer—rosé—just in time for Labor Day. The Post’s call to area wine shops and restaurants revealed that locales are running out of French varieties Whispering Angel and Domanies Ott and the local Wolffer Estate.
The situation is reportedly so bad that a ration is in effect, and Lamplighter Wines & Liquors Co. in Southampton is only allowing four bottles of Whispering Angel per person. The horror!
Luckily, we’re not actually living in the Prohibition Era. A call to Channing Daughters revealed that of the eight different varieties that were available at the beginning of the summer, four are sold out and four are ready to help Hamptonites ring in the weekend. And, a trip to Greenport Sunday revealed that Long Island rosé is still flowing on the North Fork. The end of the summer season is clearly salvageable. Whew!
