50 Shades of Rosé

Cheeky–but true. The Rosé Renaissance in America is here to stay. L’Auberge Del Mar couldn’t be happier. We’re no stranger to serving up the delicious selection of summer around our property. Whether it’s poolside on a hot summer day or relaxing on the deck at Bleu Bar. Taking in the views at Coastline, our locally sourced seafood restaurant, or on the patio of our famed Kitchen 1540. Maybe it’s on top of Del Mar at Pacific Terrace watching the western sun fall behind the crisp blue water. Wherever you may be, rosé is here to stay.
