On June 8, aka Wine Wednesday, Tituss Burgess announced the launch of not one, but TWO new wine varietals — Pinot Pride and Ros Pride. According to the press release, Burgess is releasing the wines in partnership with GLAAD, an organization devoted topromoting LGBT acceptance.
While this announcement comes just in time for LA’s Pride Festival and Parade, which goes down this weekend, New Yorkers are not to be left out.The Emmy-nominated actor and musician will launch with a three-day Taste of Tituss Pride celebration starting June 17 that’s hosted by The OUT Hotel and 42 West in New York City.
But what does Pride taste like precisely? Pinot Pride, which is a 2014 California Pinot Noir, has layers of lychee, kola and red fruit with a hint of cooking spices, wildflower honey and “cacao on the nose.” Ros Pride sounds equally delightful with flavors of “garden-ripe strawberry, crunchy pear skin and morning dew kissing wet stone.” There’s nothing quite as soothing as a wet stone make-out sesh.
Grab yourself a glass and get thelow-down on all these not-to-be-missed events.
