Rosé is here to stay! No longer an afterthought for winemakers and wine drinkers alike, rosé is now recognized as a serious style of wine to be enjoyed in the most casual of settings. Dry, light and refreshing for warm summer days, a glass of rosé evokes picnics on the beach, polo tailgates and leisurely dinners in the backyard.
The crisp and lean style of rosé allows lighter dishes, such as grilled fish served with fresh garden salads topped with goat cheese, to shine without fear of being overpowered by the wine’s weight.
On the flip side, the light nature of rosé is a lovely counterpart to richer dishes. It’s a thirst quenching wine to serve with a spicy rack of barbecue ribs, carne asada tacos or spicy Pad Thai.
Think pink, drink pink, and enjoy this slice of sunshine in a glass!
