The annual rosé dinner at c.1880, which is listed among events you shouldn't miss in the month of June, has been rescheduled for Thursday, July 16.

According to Joshua Wolter, general manager and beverage director, the event has been rescheduled in an effort to better accommodate rosé expert Erin Grace, who is scheduled to speak at the dinner.

Wolter says that, to compensate for the inconvenience, the dinner price will be reduced to $90 – both to those who have already reserved their places at the dinner, as well as any remaining reservations.

Last year's rosé dinner showcased the versatility of summer's favorite wine. This year's dinner showcases wines from the "Old World," where rosé has been popular for generations.

Dinner will start with reception at 6:30 p.m., and dinner at 7. 

The menu will include:

  • Amuse: Oyster/razor clam/hamachi with 2012 Raventos Blanc "De Nit" Rosé – Spain

  • Watermelon curry with ginger, ajwain, cilantro paired with 2014 Chateau Sant-Honore – France

  • Langoustine with rhubarb, Pernod, fennel and 2014 Domaine D'Eole Grenache/Syrah/Counoise – France

  • Pork belly with garlic scape, elephant bean, marjoram served with 2014 Schola Sarmenti "Masserei" – Italy

  • Duck with cascara, pickled plum and beet with 2014 Lechuza Garnacha rosé - Spain

  • Pre-dessert: Watermelon soda

  • Dessert: Strawberry with cattail, rosé , pate sablee paired with 2014 Ambra "Vin Ruspo" – Italy

Cost is $90 per person. Reservations can be made by calling the restaurant directly at (414) 431-9271 or by email at
