Year after year rosé continues to be one of the strongest trending and fastest-growing varietals in wine. The resurgence of rosé seems quite obvious for anyone who currently enjoys this varietal, but for those of you who aren’t convinced – here are 5 reasons as to why you should enjoy rosé all year round… a reason for each one of the delicious rosé varietals in our product line up!
- It’s the perfect brunch wine!
Rosé is one of the best wines to drink with eggs. The white wine structure in rosé doesn’t overpower, while the bit of red fruit heightens aromatics. Tip: You can also freeze rosé into ice-cube trays and pop a few into your seltzer.
- Pairs well with everything.
With the structure of white wine and some of the aromatics of red wine, rosé is incredibly versatile and can pair with everything from salads to pizza to barbecue. If you’re out to dinner and your friends all order a different meal, open a bottle of rosé wine — it’ll pair harmoniously with anything on the table.
- Tastes good IN your food!
Rosé is pretty wonderful by itself, but it also tastes great in recipes and cocktails. Try utilizing rosé in a vinaigrette, instead of lemon. Mix equal parts olive oil and wine to dress your salad.
- Perfect wine to drink with friends
Rosé is probably the most unpretentious and democratic of all wines. No other wine better captures joie de vivre than rosé. If you’re entertaining friends and know that one prefers white, but the other prefers red – rosé is the perfect varietal go-between that will please all palates!
- We have a rosé for every mood, place, and time.
Just like red and white wines, there is such a broad range of rosés out there to try. Do you have a friend who swears by red wine alone? Have them try our En Primeur Winery Series Chilean Pinot Noir Rosé. Feeling like something sweeter? Enjoy our fruity and refreshing Grand Cru Zinfandel Blush Style whose sweetness is off-dry. Or perhaps you’d like something dryer? Open a bottle of our Cru International French rosé style that has been made in the classic French rosé style.
How to best enjoy rosé?
Like white wine, rosé is best served in a medium-sized glass so that the fresh and fruity characteristics gather towards the top. You should treat it just as you would a white wine, not too cold that you can’t taste anything, but certainly chilled. When in doubt though, follow the 20:20 rule. The idea being that you should take your white or rosé out the fridge 20 minutes before serving, while reds should go into the fridge 20 minutes before serving.
