Seattle, WA –September 4, 2013– The Queen Anne Farmers Market (QAFM) today announced that Canlis Restaurant is introducing a new rose’ wine label to benefit Seattle’s only independent, non-profit market. The wine will be available for purchase at McCarthy & Schiering Wine Merchants in Queen Anne starting September 5. Like the critically acclaimed food and service at Canlis, the restaurant’s wine program continues to set an unparalleled standard, most recently winning its seventeenth consecutive Wine Spectator Grand Award, placing it in the top 50 wine lists of the world.
“We cannot adequately express our gratitude to the Canlis Family and to Canlis Sommelier, Nelson Daquip, for their continued support and generosity,” said Maria College, co-founder and Director, QAFM. “Every week we celebrate Washington’s agricultural abundance and we are thrilled that we can also showcase our state’s proud tradition as the second largest wine-producing region in the country.”
The Queen Anne Farmers Market Rose’ was selected by Canlis Sommelier, Nelson Daquip, for its tradition as a celebratory summer wine. The rose’ is lively and refreshing with notes of Rainier cherries, fresh strawberries and wild raspberries and a touch of white pepper, finishing crisp and clean. As part of the Canlis project, McCarthy and Schiering Wine Merchants have generously agreed to make the rose’ available at their wine shop at a price point of $13.99. The QAFM rose’ will also be available by the glass at Canlis.
