These Are The Best Rosé Wine Bottles To Experience Summer’s Most Popular Drink
Ah yes, summer is around the corner meaning everything’s coming up rosé. Now is the time to stock up on the season’s favorite kind of wine. Maybe it has something to do with its gorgeous pale pink color, (the color of fun), but rosé inspires the best laid-back, summer vibes. It can transport you to another place whether that may be relaxing at the beach, pool side, picnic in the park, or happy hour on a rooftop. Let’s face it- Rosé is perfect for just about every wine-drinking scenario and can easily be sipped alone and complements any type of food.
Made from red grapes, rosé wine can originate from anywhere in the world, and can be produced in various shades, flavors, and consistencies. Its pink hue comes from integrating a touch of the color from the grape skin with the juice of the grape. Since the second Saturday in June marks National Rosé Day, we have selected the best ways to celebrate your thirst for the flirty wine.
