It’s not every day you run into Shep Rose, star of Bravo reality series “Southern Charm,” but hey, life is random, isn’t it? Rose was at the Kathryn Hall wine event last night at the W Hotel Chicago City Center. The HALL Napa Valley event included a vertical tasting, celebrating the release of the highly anticipated 2015 Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon.
Hall also hosted events in St. Helena, California and Columbus, Ohio. Rose also attended the Chicago Cubs’ loss to their division rivals the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field on Wednesday night, posting this colorful Tweet:
Hey Trump. This is America’s pastime. And this is America. Diverse group people laughing and enjoying a ballgame. And fuck you too @TuckerCarlson you slimy bow tie fuck. You don’t know shit about this country pic.twitter.com/ZxbYOZfT8R

If you’re looking for a Twitter account run by someone who lives a in a deep red state who consistently and often hilariously owns MAGA and alt-right trolls, then give Rose a follow.
If you’re not a reality TV person, and you’re not familiar with Southern Charm, its IMDB page describes the series as revealing “a world of exclusivity, money and scandal dating back through generations of families in Charleston, S.C.
“The docuseries follows several Charleston singles as they pursue their personal and professional lives while trying to preserve their family names because just one social faux pas can taint a family’s name for generations.”
Yes, the cast has evacuated due to the onset of Hurricane Florence.
As for Shep Rose and the wine release party last night, he articulated how it all came about via his official, verified Instagram account below:
