Rosé and summer go together like mint and chocolate, refreshing and delightful. Rosé wines are made from red wine grapes that have been left on the grape skins for a very short period of time. This allows the wine to develop those beautiful pink colors.
By pulling the skins off early, the wine stays fresh and light without the dry tannin that is typically found in a true red wine. The result is a slight cross between a white wine and a red wine. Rosé captures the light crisp acidity of a white wine along with the red berry flavors of a red.
I’ve pulled together a line-up of Rosé wines that are perfect for picnics, affordable for your Wine Wednesdays, and even a few designed to impress. One quick shortcut to selecting a Rosé, if you are short on time and want to make sure you’re getting a fabulous Rosé, then select a bottle from Côtes de Provence France. Done!
Now if you want to try a variety of the pink stuff, I’ve got 10 Rosés from around the world that you’ll definitely want to check out. These are organized by price and all can be ordered on wine.com.

Tasting Notes**: Floral notes with flavors of raspberry, strawberry, and cherry. It’s a dry wine with a nice level of acidity, making it a refreshing Rose.
