Saturday is National Rosé Day…are you armed with your bottle or bottles? Over the past couple of years I have become a big rosé fan and I’ve written quite a bit about a number of them. I went back through my posts to see what I’ve done and boy have I drank a ton of rosé’s! Let’s dive into rosés in general and then I have a rosé roundup of my faves just for you! Let me know which ones are your faves!
Rosé is probably the oldest known type of wine that dates back as far as 600BC. Rosé wines are generally made from red grapes and complement a wide variety of foods. It’s lighter than red wine but deeper than white wine. The pink color is dependent on the time the grape skin stays in contact with the juice…this is called maceration. There are rosé wines that are semi-sparkling, sparkling, sweet, dry and everything in between.
If you’re looking for a way to celebrate this holy grail of a day, try having a Pink Party! Yup, I’ve thrown one of those of course. Have a rosé tasting party and discover new wines and new favorites or simply grab a bottle or two…or three and enjoy them by the pool!
Now on to my rosé roundup…
I wanted to try Whispering Angel because I saw it on an episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and I’m not afraid to admit that! I loved it and see why Lisa Rinna does too!
I had Miraval Provence Rosé while out to dinner and then discovered it’s from the former vineyard of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie…I’m seeing a common theme of celebrities and rosés!
Innovac!ón Malbec – Syrah Rosé from Argentina was one that was sent to me to try and the wine tasted as good as the label looked! Not to mention this bottle retails for just $10!
What does Costco and rosé have in common? Their own wine that retails for under $10 and was awesome! Kirkland Signature Côtes de Provence Rosé was fantastic and it always helps when I have a Costco find!
This is one of my FAVORITES! La Crema’s Pinot Noir Rosé is a reason I’m a wine club member!
If you’re looking for a sparkling rosé, then Chandon Rosé is perfect! It has the finishing touches of a pinot noir.
Another one of my faves is Sofia Rosé by Francis Ford Coppola. It’s beautiful, crisp and refreshing and the bottle is the most gorgeous shape!
Lastly, if you’re looking for an organic rose…and one in a can, then I even have a selection for you in that category! Tiamo Rosé was perfectly crisp with hints of strawberry!
