Good luck finding your favorite bottle of rosé in theHamptons this weekend — or any pink vino for that matter.
We hear rumblings that restaurants and wine shops are low on local favorite Wölffer Estate, as well as imports like Domaines Ott and Chateau d’Esclans’ Whispering Angel, because the summering hordes have been tirelessly swilling all season long.
Haute Chinese hot spot Red Stixs in Water Mill ran out of Whispering Angel weeks ago. Photographer-turned-vintner Ben Watts’ Spanish WattsUp Rosé is completely sold out at Montauk’s Surf Lodge, Navy Beach and Moby’s in East Hampton. Restaurant 75 Main completely sold its cache of Domaines Ott, but ordered an emergency “pallet” of VieVité.
A Wölffer Estate rep told us the vineyard’s sold out its 2013 Summer in a Bottle Rosé and Grandioso Rosé as well as the 2010 Noblesse Oblige Sparkling Rosé, but still has some 2013 Wölffer Rosé.
“We are getting very low, so it’s hard to say how much longer we’ll have it,” a rep said.
In 2012, rosé was running so low by Labor Day, some stores limited customers to four bottles apiece.
