Rosé is hot!

If you can’t believe how much you’re hearing about rosé all of a sudden, well, neither can we! We discovered the joy of pink wine while tasting our way through wine country in California in 2014. Back then it was something small-production wineries were tinkering with, not something they were committed to — they weren’t sure American consumers would make the leap from cloyingly sweet White Zinfandel to drier rosé.

Fast forward to today and we're all witnessing an utter explosion of rosé produced in the U.S. and imported, mostly from France. To help you make sense of it all, we’ve assembled this handy guide to everything (wine) that's pink. We've updated this page for 2019, but many retailers are not yet carrying the 2018 releases so stay tuned as we continue to update the guide with the latest releases of our favorite rosés.

Whether you're looking for a rosé subscription or to pick up a few bottles at your local store, we can help point you in the right direction.

What is rosé, anyway?

Rosé, a light wine perfect for summer, is made from many different kinds of grapes, comes in every shade of pink and pale orange imaginable, and can range anywhere from sweet to bone dry. In other words, there’s something for every kind of wine drinker. Typically we think of rosé as dry, even when it’s fruity, and we should never mistake rosé for White Zinfandel, which it is not.

There are a few primary ways rosé is produced, the first two begin with red grapes being allowed to rest on their skins when they are being pressed. Quick note: red grapes often have white flesh, so red wine made from those grapes gets its color from contact with the skin.

Method 1 (Maceration): Here the purpose of the pressing is to make rosé. The grapes rest on their skins for just a short time, then the skins are removed, and the wine is produced with a now light-pink juice (it hasn't fermented yet, so it's still just grape juice). Different rest periods produce different depth of colors.

Method 2 (Saignée): Here the rosé is a second wine made while producing a red wine. The lighter colored juice from the first press is "bled off," collected, and turned into rosé while the rest of the batch continues on to become a now more-intense red wine.

Method 3 (Blending): The third way to make rosé is to blend small amounts of red wine and a signficant portion of white wine (we know you're tempted, but we don't recommend trying this at home unless you have a great bottle of Vermentino and an eyedropper for titrating Cinsault and Grenache into your glass).

As with most things wine, we recommend you check out Wine Folly’s take on Rosé if you want a deeper dive.

How to drink and store rosé

When to Drink: Nearly all rosé is meant to be drunk the year it is released. For 2019 that means you should be drinking 2018 rosé and that you should try to finish everything you buy this year before the calendar flips February 1, 2020 (when the new releases start to make it to market). While rosé can be consumed any time of year, there seems to be a preference to enjoy it when it’s hot outside. So, our suggestion, if you make it to Labor Day and haven’t depleted your stash, set aside your two favorites (for those random hot days in early Fall) and bring the rest to your Labor Day BBQ.

Storage: You can keep rosé in your regular refrigerator, or any other cool and dark location. Like most light-colored wines, it is recommended you drink rosé when its temperature reaches 45-55 degrees Fahrenheit. Your fridge is typically under 40 degrees, so let the rosé sit out in the bottle for 10-15 minutes to come up to ideal temperature. A fridge-cold wine loses its nuance and complexity because some of the elements which deliver flavor don’t activate until they’re warmer.

Wine Glasses for Rosé: Many people serve rosé in a standard white wine glass. This is totally fine. If you happen to be drinking a Rosé of Pinot Noir and you happen to have tulip glasses, we recommend using those. It’s also fun to drink rosé out of champagne flutes.

If you must go stemless, we suggest something like these glasses which separate your hot hands from your cool wine. We strongly recommend avoiding the following materials: stainless steel, plastic, rubber, and acrylic as they will change the way your wine tastes, and not in a good way.

Insulated Glass Tumblers for Wine
Rosé tastes better when cold, so invest in glasses that help keep it that way longer.

Different kinds of rosé

Today most of the world’s supply of rosé comes from southern France, including Provence (Provençal is the adjective we use to describe things from Provence) and Languedoc-Roussillon; rosé has become popular with winemakers around the world and is made in many different styles these days.

If you live in California or anywhere on the west coast, you also have access to a terrific selection of "domestic" rosé wine. Rosé hailing from California, Oregon, and Washington is now widely available and all of it is a delightful alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.

Here is a selection of different rosés, each with a description of what to expect and where to buy some of our favorites.

In this guide: Kinds of Rosé: Provence, California and Beyond, and Cans · Where to Buy Rosé Online · Back to Top

Rosés of France (mostly Provence and nearby)

The first rosé I had in Provence was from Domaine de Valdition and oh, was it divine. Like Champagne, it could be paired with almost anything, but it complemented our fresh French cheeses and salads perfectly. That example was made from 60% Grenache, 25% Cinsault, and 15% Vermentino (a blend of red and white grapes), but other commonly used grapes for rosé from Provence include: Mourvèdre, Carignan, and sometimes Syrah, Counoise, and Muscardin.

Due to the popularity of rosé, we're starting to see imported French rosé from less well-known regions, too. Don't let that stop you from trying them! There's much to love about rosé and trying different styles is always a fun way to learn more.

Fun fact: Provençal rosé is often sold in unusually-shaped bottles. This is a tradition going back to the 1930s when wineries first started bottling their own wines and wanted to compete with each other on presentation. Today you’ll find a plethora of bottle shapes designed to stand out on the shelf at the store and still fit in your modern refrigerator or wine cellar. We think it’s charming. More detail at

The perfect rose wine for an aperitif or with fish, shellfish, grilled vegetables, spiced exotic food and sushi and all the way to the cheese board and pudding.”

Rosés from California, Oregon, and Washington

Not to be left out from all the fun, many Rhone-producing wineries in the U.S. have started making their own rosés. Boutique wineries from Paso Robles and Santa Barbara are especially prolific, because hot summer Southern California afternoons go perfectly with fruity, dry rosé made of Pinot Noir (not a Rhone grape, but makes a great rosé), Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and all kinds of blends. We’ve seen rosés of Merlot, Sangiovese, and Zinfandel, too. (Boutique winemakers are creative!)

Not burdened with a century of traditional winemaking rules, U.S. winemakers are free to test the boundaries. You’ll notice a great variety in depth of color, flavor profiles, and preferred grapes as compared to Provence. You’ll also notice a lack of critical ratings on the U.S. rosés — we can only presume this is because most of them are produced in small batches and the caché of U.S. rosé hasn’t caught on yet.

While a great number of excellent west coast wineries have jumped on the rosé bandwagon, some questionable large-scale producers have also jumped in. We’d like to bring your attention to White Girl Rosé, best described as a strawberry/watermelon Jolly Rancher. You can read about sommelier opinions of it at VinePair.

Conundrum Rosé 2018

Region: California
Grape Varieties: A blend including Valdiguié

Wine Description: “COMMENTARY: The 2018 Conundrum Rosé is beautiful and delightful. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits a pale pink color and a delicate note on the palate. Its fresh and bright aromas and flavors of ripe cherries and light earth should pair it delightfully with fresh salmon sashimi. (Tasted: July 12, 2019, San Francisco, CA)” — Wilfred Wong at

Retail: $25. $22.99 at

Elouan Rosé of Pinot Noir 2018

Region: Willamette, Umpqua, and Rogue Valleys, Oregon
Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir

Wine Description: “The diversity of these cool climate areas combined with an elongated growing season creates wine with intensity of fruit flavor, structure, and a fresh vibrant acidity. This is a bespoke rosé where grapes were grown and harvested with the specific intention of making rosé; and not a saignée rosé, which can be a by-product of making red wine. It is finished with a screwcap to preserve the crisp, clean aromas and tastes, and is a great choice for outdoor occasions: picnics, lunch on the patio, or enjoyed on its own as an aperitif.” —

This is the same winemaker, Joe Wagner of Wagner Family of Wine, that produces Caymus, Conundrum, Meiomi, and Belle Glos.

Buy it online: Retails for $20-25. $19.99 at

Matthiasson Rosé 2017

Region: Dunnigan Hills, Yolo County, California
Grape Varieties: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise

Wine Description: “The 2018 Rose was made from a combination of Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre, and Counoise from the Windmill vineyard in the Dunnigan Hills, and Syrah grapes from the Hurley Vineyard in Napa valley. Its citrusy aromas and clean flavors will complement the wonderful spring foods that show up on the table as the weather thaws (salads, rabbit, frittatas, pea, favas, green garlic...). Perfect for springtime holiday meals, or enjoying on the porch all summer.” —

Note: This winery is a somm-favorite and is often talked about in superlative terms by those in the know to others in the know.

Sanford Rosé of Pinot Noir 2017

Region: Santa Rita Hills (Santa Barbara County), California
Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir

9 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine. “Slightly darker in color that most pale-pink rosés, this wine offers aromas of ripe watermelon, strawberry, cherry and red plum, proving quite aromatic. There is great tension to the palate, where zesty citrus and red fruit flavors are fresh and vibrant.”

Wine Description: “Light pink, with salmon-pink highlights. Enticing aromas of cranberry, orange peel, white flowers and Lychee. On the palate sour cherry and blood orange flavors are framed nicely by bright acidity and lingering minerality.” —

Buy it online: Retails for $23-27. $19.99 at

Apothic Rosé 2017

Region: California
Grape Varieties: Unknown

Wine Description: “Apothic Rosé 2017 features vibrant flavors of strawberry with a hint of raspberry.

With a refreshing yet creamy finish, this wine is light in style but dark in nature.”

Lioco Indica Rosé 2018

Region: Mendocino County, California
Grape Varieties: Carignan

Wine Description: “From a mid-century planting of dry-farmed, head pruned Carignan in the township of Talmage. A severe diurnal shift supports gradual and often late ripening. The soil is red clay strewn with fist sized rocks. The combination of vine age, extended growing season, and tougher soil conspire to produce a Rose with great freshness and complexity.” —

Rosés in a Can!

The other day when my hairdresser asked, “Okay, so… wine in a can?!” And I said, “Yes! If it’s good wine!” The truth is, there are many reasons winemakers are turning to cans to present their wares, here are a few.

  1. Cans are hipster-cool. Whether it’s La Croix, Pabst Blue Ribbon, or Pinot Noir, it comes in a can.
  2. Cans are very portable. You can take cans of wine all kinds of places you would never bring bottles: the beach/pool, parks (because cops can’t see it’s booze from their car when it’s in a can), concerts (see note about cops), and anywhere a corkscrew may not be handy.
  3. Cans are actually great for wine. As a general rule we want to keep light and air out of our wine until we’re ready to drink it. Aluminum doesn’t let in any light or air. Also, the cans are lined with an epoxy (like all other beverage and food cans) so the aluminum doesn’t interact with the wine.
  4. Cans are lighter weight, so fuel costs associated with shipping are lower (hooray for the environment and the price of the wine).
  5. And... they're a great way to start a conversation about wine!

Some of our favorite places to buy Rosé online

One quick look at and you’ll probably notice there are a bazillion places to buy wine online. Many times wine merchants don’t have the wines listed in stock, they order them when you do. Frequently they’ll list low prices on sites like wine-searcher, and then charge you a lot for shipping, eroding the discount value.

So, we’re sharing with you some of our favorite places to buy rosé online, and why you want to shop at those stores. Also, we’ve sprinkled in some cool deals on rosé to keep you well-informed. Happy shopping!

Quick notes: when buying wine online, don't forget to verify the store can send wine to your state (we have complex shipping laws regarding alcohol in the U.S.). Also, an adult 21-years or older must sign for all alcohol deliveries, so we recommend shipping to your workplace if possible. If not, try the FedEx Delivery Manager and UPS MyChoice services to manage your deliveries.

Rosé Summer Wine Club
A Rosé Subscription by Ninety Plus Cellars

Rosé Summer Wine Club by Ninety Plus Cellars

What is Ninety Plus Cellars?

If you’re not already familiar with Ninety Plus Cellars (Ninety+), let me break it down for you. Through various means, Ninety+ brings wine to market they believe that could rank 90 points or higher if critically-reviewed. Sometimes they purchase grapes that haven’t yet been harvested and make their own wines, sometimes they buy wine that’s already been produced but needs to be bottled, and every once in a while they’ll buy wine that’s already bottled but just needs a label and a winery to sell it.

This method of acquiring great quality wine and selling it under their own label allows them to keep their prices low — wines that would normally sell for much higher prices. This is (roughly) the same business model in use by Cameron Hughes and Kirkland wines at Costco.

To celebrate the season, the Ninety Plus Cellars Rosé Summer Wine Club features their rosés which might include:

Rosé Wine Tasting Box

Summer Rosé Box by Vinebox

VineBox is a unique wine club which selects premium wines each month and then rebottles them into 3.3 oz (10 cL) glass tubes. We’ve received numerous shipments of VineBox and we are always impressed with the quality of the wines they include in their program.

The technology they use to rebottle the wines ensures the wine is not exposed to oxygen before being repackaged in the by-the-glass tubes.

Summer Rosé Box contains 6 glasses of wine for $49. With a focus is on European wines, this tasting box includes Cabernet Sauvignon rosé from Spain, Italian rosé from the base of the Alps, French rosé from Provençe to the frozen tundras of Savoie.

Summer Water Societé Review
A Three-Month Rosé Wine Subscription by Winc

Summer Water Societé 2018 - Three Sizes: 175 mL, 750 mL, 1.5 L magnum

A few years ago when Winc started making their own wine, they set off on a mission to create a great rosé and they rather cleverly named it Summer Water. It sold out very quickly (because who doesn’t want to drink a wine called Summer Water) so the next year Winc increased their production and launched the Summer Water Societé — a fun way to describe Winc’s seasonal rosé wine subscription. We bet you’re not surprised to learn that sold out lightning quick, too!

What is Summer Water? A Quick Review

Aside from a clever brand name, Summer Water is a rosé made from a blend of different red wine grapes from the Central Coast wine region of California, mostly from Monterey and Santa Barbara County. The 2017 vintage are a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah and the juice was fermented in stainless steel.

It is a dry, light-bodied rosé produced using the maceration method of rosé winemaking where the little bit of color comes from short contact with the grape skins. The grapes were harvested early to achieve a higher acidity — this is why these taste fresh and bright and go so well with lighter fare like salads, fish (especially sushi and ceviche), and shellfish.

The prominent flavors in the 2017 Summer Water include grapefruit, strawberry, and white peach. Like all rosé, it’s best served cold. 12.5% alcohol by volume. This wine is Vegan-friendly (according to Winc).

Want to try it? Join Winc’s wine club and put a bottle of 2017 Summer Water in your first box. Then chill it, taste it, and enjoy your Summer Water!
