Dan’s Rosé Soirée Countdown: Blake Helppie, Rosé Piscine

Rosé Piscine’s Blake Helppie seems like a very contented man. He loves his job, he loves to cook and, as he says, “our French rosé, Rosé Piscine, the only rosé made specifically to drink with ice, will be available in stores throughout the Hamptons in early June.” Ice is nice. Meet Helppie at Dan’s Rosé Soirée on Memorial Day Weekend (May 28) at the Southampton Arts Center. He’s no wine snob, he sings the praises of our local varietals, saying, “I really enjoy Channing Daughters Winery wines. I love their ability to constantly push the envelope, which has resulted in some truly unique wines—such as their orange wines. I appreciate their playful and experimental approach to their wines.”
