What better way to spend a summer afternoon than with a plate of fried chicken and a cold glass of rosé? The fine folks at Mattie’s know what’s up. The pan-Southern restaurant set in a gorgeous historic home is rolling out the blankets (figuratively) for a picnic on Saturday. From 1 to 4 p.m. the restaurant will serve a plate of fried chicken and glass of C.L. Butaud’s 2017 rosé, celebrating the release of the vintage that is a blend of Grenache Noir, Piquepoul Blanc and Rolle sourced from the One Elm Vineyard in New Home, Texas. The first glass comes with the $35, after that, you’re on your own, and can buy the wine by the glass or bottle. Tickets here.
“Texans love rosé. Living in the perfect place between a white and a red wine, rosé is the perfect accompaniment for fried chicken in an outdoor setting … juicy, structured and dry with a chill balances every crispy bite,“ La Corsha Hospitality wine director Paula Rester said.
