WWMD (What would Margaret drink?) – May 2021

Margaret Pearman is a certified sommelier under the Court of Master Sommeliers and is responsible for curating the award-winning wine list at Charlie’s L’Etoile Verte. Here are her sipping suggestions for May:

Boat-ready rosé

French Pool Toy is an elegant rosé wine from France that comes in either an unbreakable eco-friendly bottle or a stylish 1.5L pouch that stays fresh for 60 days after opening. Photos taken by Margaret Pearman, off her parents’ dock overlooking the May River.

Summer is calling! Whether you are on the boat, at the pool or sitting with sand between your toes, French Pool Toy Rosé is the hot-ticket wine to bring along. The packaging is ingenious. It comes in a 750mL eco-friendly plastic bottle and a 1.5L “tote” that will stay delicious for weeks after opening. For something even more fun, freeze the tote, and serve up a Frosé. But it’s not all about the convenient and versatile packaging. The juice is real-deal dry French rosé. Grab a pack of Govino plasticware, and any wine aficionado will be content sipping wine while on the water.
