Rosé has a new home in New York, where an interactive wine-tasting experience has popped up for oenophiles and neophytes alike to enjoy the pink summer sipper.
The Rosé Mansion is a photo-friendly exhibit with 14 rooms where visitors can take in the history of rosé and enjoy samples of eight wines.
"The idea was to smash together two ideas, like a museum of science and a really cool wine bar," said Tyler Balliet, co-founder of The Rosé Mansion.
Balliet said visitors can learn about the history and tradition of wine making as they drink in a photo-friendly space. The museum, like any millennial-optimized experience, is full of Instagramable scenes: Take pictures by the giant swinging chandelier, next to the bar filled with hot pink sand, and in a bathtub full of rose petals.
After a selfie shoot in the mansion, visitors can cool off with even more rosé, a wine that Balliet described as the "great equalizer."
"People that know nothing about wine can shop for it, buy it, and really enjoy it," he said.
Tickets for the Rosé Mansion are going for $35 during a two-week pre-sale that ends June 17. After that, tickets cost $45. The mansion opens July 12 for visitors 21 and over.
