Delicious, refreshing, and sweet nectar are all accurate, but rosé is a type of wine that utilizes the color of the grape skins in the winemaking process. It does not utilize enough to quantify as a red wine, and colors can vary from light to deep blushes depending on the varietal and craftsmanship.

 

This light, refreshing wine that’s sparkling and sweet or sometimes still and dry, has made itself right at home as one of the most popular wines in the world. As one of the earliest known red wines, rose has a long, rich history and should be added to your regular rotation.  

 

Whether you’re flying into Paris or closer to the coast in Marseilles, try some of the finest roses in the world, and see where they come from:
