FAVORITE SUMMER ROSÉS



I couldn't let National Rosé Day pass with sharing my personal favorites. But first, a disclaimer: I'm very new to the world of rosé. While G is responsible for the maturity of my wine pallet, he isn't a fan of rosé at all, so I've been venturing out into those waters solo. I can't make the claim that these wines are the best the rosé world has to offer. But I can say that they are crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking (all exactly what I'm looking for during the summer months). Here are my current favorites:



1) SAMUEL ROBERT ROSE WILLAMETTE "VINTNER'S RESERVE", 2019

This wine was a gamble for me - I went with it simply because it was one I hadn't tried yet on the top 12 wines for summer list at our local Total Wine. It was delightful. Medium-bodied, slightly sweet, and fruit forward with notes of watermelon, strawberry, and plum.



























2) CHEMIN DES SABLES IGP MEDITERRANEE

This surprisingly affordable (read: under $10) wine is what I typically reach for when I grab a rosé. It's bright, crisp, and has hints of citrus and strawberry. The light body makes it especially easy to sip on when it's hot outside.























3) BERTRAND COTE DES ROSES ROSE


shop it here


The first rosé I tried and liked, but it's number three on my list now. This wine is refreshing and light. Always a hit - and the bottle is gorgeous.


















Tried but didn't love:

FLEURS DE PRAIRIE ROSE COTES DE PROVENCE


This was actually the first rosé recommended to me, and it wasn't my favorite. It's crisp and floral, which I think may have been the disconnect for me. I prefer slightly sweet, berries, and citrus. But if you like floral wines, this may be the ticket for you!





















When it comes to accompaniments, I have to admit I look for fun first. After all, this is a variety of wine G doesn't enjoy, so I can pick up whatever speaks to me! Some personal favorites are these stemless bubble glasses, these delicate pink glasses, and these iridescent ones. I've also been eyeing this wine insulator - it seems like the perfect answer to these warm summer nights.
