Thorny Rose Wines Launches in NYC

Thorny Rose Wines is expected to launch next month and to celebrate they held an exclusive invite only fete at popular LES mainstay, Hotel Chantelle. Thorny Rose is a new take on wines industry with modern packaging, bright-fruit, and medium bodied style. The brand offers something for everyone with their various options like Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Red Blend.


Amongst the crowd which included media professionals, influencers were notables, DJ Mia Moretti, musician Caitlin Moe, Top Chef contestant Tyler Boring, and Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly of Brooklyn-based syntho-pop duo Chairlift.

Our favorite part of the evening was the fabulous pairings of Thorny Rose Wines with delicious hors d’oeuvres, from sirloin and caramelized onion empanadas to lamb meatball sliders and custom bacon wrapped fig ‘Thorny’ roses, the wines can go with just about any meal.

As the night continued, guests put on their game face for an intense game of Jenga and later enjoyed the sounds of  DJ/electric violin duo Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe who kept the crowd dancing until finally concluding with a special performance from Brooklyn-based band Chairlift.

Thorny Rose Wines retails for $10.99 (750ml, screw cap) and will be available at local wine and food stores nationwide beginning September 2012.
