East Coast and West Coast Rosé


Rosé after Labor Day? It’s ok. We won’t judge! 

Readers may not realize it, but, yes, we are actually all friends here at Girls on Food. Nikki (who lives in NYC) and I (living in LA) were recently messaging each other about our favorite Rosé bottles, and we decided we should probably share this conversation with our readers!

I gave Nikki my recommendation for a Rosé that is sparkles but is also deep in flavor (party-perfect) and she recommended the best “Netflix and PJs” blend for me. Our picks are below:

Nikki’s Rosé Pick: 
Luc Belaire Rosé
I recently popped open a bottle at a holiday party – Wine & Hip-Hop Holiday Soiree.
The effervescent, smooth but still berry-packed taste of this Rosé was the perfect bubbly to help spread the holiday cheer… and help break the ice to get us movin’ & groovin’ to those unconventional holiday tunes.
Julianne’s Rosé Pick: 
Cloud Chaser Côtes de Provence
When it comes to Rosé, I’m always looking for a dry, easy-to-drink bottle- you’d probably be shocked to hear I have a hard time with it! Many Rosés out there are too acidic or too fruity but after tasting around, I finally found Cloud Chaser, and I consider it my go-to blend.
A glass of Cloud Chaser is beautiful on its own; it’s smooth, refreshing and makes you feel like it’s summer (even as I prep Christmas presents). I recently discovered that it also makes a fabulous spritzer as well!
Raspy Rosé   
3 oz Cloud Chaser Côtes de Provence
3 oz Original New York Seltzer Raspberry Soda
1 Lemon Slice
Fill a wine glass with ice, then add chilled Cloud Chaser Rosé, top off with Original New York Seltzer Raspberry Soda and garnish with lemon slice.


Actress and Founder of Girls on Food: I was born and raised in the suburbs of Sacramento, California. I grew up a typical “McDonald’s kid”. I was very picky about what I ate and refused to try new foods. No fun, I know. My Mom started taking me on trips to Europe when I was a teenager and that’s when my palate for finer foods began to develop. Some of my most memorable favorite meals include Veal Bolognese in Rome, Gyros in Athens, Paella in Lisbon and Duck L’Orange in Paris. While this helped me grow out of a fast food phase, I still eat out quite a bit. I know I should be at home cooking, but I love dining out. I started working in restaurants in various front of the house positions at age 15. Since my start, I’ve worked in every casual restaurant setting you can think of: a teriyaki stand, brewery, sushi nightclub, trendy Mexican, family-style Italian, American diner, pizza parlor and even a BLT themed food truck. I can't help but notice that many of the LA food bloggers don't have any sort of background working in a restaurant. A lot of my perspective on food and dining out comes from my years of experience in the biz. Since starting this blog, I have shot appearances on a couple of cooking competition shows as a taster (including MasterChef Junior and another upcoming show). We have also started producing a Youtube Channel. IMDb page here: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2023647/ For this site I contribute content from all over Los Angeles (and the world) to showcase my favorite fine-dining spots, steakhouses, exclusive supper clubs, Hollywood nightlife and our very own #GOFx events, which I plan and coordinate.
