Rosé from around the world
Travel through European wine country this month as we feature rosès from France, Italy, Germany, and Spain. This month’s blush-filled bottles highlight the flavors that are reminiscent from each region and pair perfectly with an alfresco meal or long summer’s day. While France is often considered the motherland of traditional rosé, the popularity of the wine – which has doubled in the past two years thanks to better-quality production and improved wine education – has expanded throughout the world. Like white wine, rosé is best served in a medium-sized glass allowing the fresh & fruity characteristics to gather at the top. Best enjoyed chilled, though not too chilled that you can’t taste anything. So join us this month, grab your seat in the sunshine, and raise your glass to summer sipping
