Written by YEC | Jul 27, 2018 1:00:26 PM

On July 17, 2018, YEC members and guests enjoyed rosé wine for the annual NYC summer Connections event. The evening was presented by Rosé Mansion and co-hosted by LawTrades. YEC members Tyler Balliet and Morgan First of Rosé Mansion along with Raad Ahmed of LawTrades were delighted to host fellow YEC'ers and guests for a unique experience.

Guests partook in guided tours around the picturesque venue space, Rosé Mansion, while sipping wine from around the world. Each room provided guests with the opportunity to learn about the history, science and economics of rosé. While waiting to take the tour, guests engaged in built in photo booths, tastings and lawn games such as giant Jenga and cornhole.

A wide variety of rosé options were provided by Rosé Mansion as they performed palate observations for each guest. Cornucopia Concepts catered the event, with oysters, chicken skewers, bruschetta and charcuterie boards pairing perfectly with the rosé. There was also a pink-inspired sweets spread awaiting members at the bar as they taste tested their perfect selection of rosé.

YEC Co-founder and CEO Scott Gerber spoke at the event, welcoming guests and thanking our event partners. YEC members, guests and prospective members enjoyed having the chance to establish relationships over their favorite summer drink. The fun atmosphere brought out personalities and resulted in refreshing, genuine connections.

Rosé Mansion is open from July to October 2018 at 445 5th Ave in NYC. Guests are encouraged to return to the mansion with friends, family and their teams. Visit the website and get your tickets here. For those who couldn’t make it, you won’t want to miss out on the experience at least once!
