Top 5 Rosé Wines For Summer
I’m no wine expert, but I do consider myself a rosé aficionado. Ryan isn’t a big wine drinker, so pretty much every bottle in our house gets consumed by yours truly :)
That said, he will drink wine on vacation. I fully take advantage of these opportunities and drag him around to vineyards on all of our trips, which he does love. And, after we get a little saucy from the tastings (because who really pours out the wine during tastings), we end up ordering bottles and sending them home. We’ve done this in New Zealand, Australia, and Italy!
I couldn’t limit my rosé picks to just five, so I decided to give you my top five with two honorable mentions. I’d love to hear from you in the comments if you’ve tried any of these or if there are a few that you plan on experimenting with!
Listed in no particular order (except for #1 because it’s my fave):
The Belle Gloss Pinot Noir is one of my favorite reds. I drank more bottles than I’d like to admit as a new mom this past winter. When I saw they made a pinot noir blanc, I had to try it. And, naturally, I loved it just as much! The citrus flavors make it incredibly light and an easy drink.
First of all, this bottle won me over with its cool design and glass top closure. I’m not super skilled at uncorking wines so I’m like HANDS UP when I find a tasty wine that makes my life easier. I find this wine to be very light, similar to Whispering Angel and best served with starter seafood dishes such as oysters and shrimp cocktail.
You can’t beat this price point for a high quality rosé! My wine guy in town said that the Bandol region is one of the best regions in the world for producing rosé, and that was enough for me to give it a try and love it!
4. Fattoria Di Basciano Rosato di Toscano – $12 (No link, ask your local wine peeps!)
If you’re looking for a more flavorful rosé that is rich in color, this one is for you! There are fruity tones without being too sweet, which is one of the big reasons I love this wine.
Another light and flavorful rosé, with light acidity towards the end, this one has been a favorite for the past few years.
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of these options! I also have two honorable mentions for you, including:
Whispering Angel, $18 (I didn’t list this one because everyone already knows it, and I wanted to give you other options! But let’s be honest, this has become everyone’s favorite rosé)
Paul Thomas Sancerre Rosé, $20 (Another fave, if you’re looking for something new!)
Hope you enjoy the list, loves! What have you tried? Can’t wait to hear your thoughts and reviews if you decide to try something new.
