Rosés & Sparkling Rosés

Rosés have become very popular in America over the past few years, especially during the warm months of the year. Believe it or not, they are even more popular in France than white wine. Rosés are perfectly suited for enjoying at the park, beach, or backyard cookout. They add that little extra something to your glass and your fun.

But how are Rosés created? Most of us don’t know how they are made or where some of the best Rosés comes from. A common misconception is that Rosés  are made by mixing red wine with white wine. In fact, this is a process that most winemakers dislike and do not support. So this is how they do it. All grape juice is white. Whether the grapes are green or red, the color of the wine is dependent on the amount of time the winemaker allows the grape skins to come into contact with the juice. The longer the contact, the more the color the wine attains. So they allow the skins enough contact with the grape juice to get that perfect pink color, typically two or three days. This also gives Rosés that extra touch of flavor.

You could say the capital of this wine would be Provence. The Provence wine region of France creates more Rosés than any other style of wine, and because they make so much of it they are really good at it. We are fortunate here in the Pacific Northwest to have so many local wineries producing Rosés that are as good if not better than some imported from Provence. The great thing about Rosés is they are available at many different prices, and you can find some amazing bargains.
