Why Rosé is not just a Summer Wine
There is a common misconception that Rosé wine can only be enjoyed in the heat of the Summer
Let’s set the scene, shall we? The brisk Fall air is beginning to arrive and the leaves start changing colors, meaning you must (perhaps longingly) say farewell to Summer and pull out your Fall sweaters. But one thing doesn’t need to change so quickly! I’ll give you a hint: It’s luscious, it’s pink, and it’s right there in your glass.
Yep, you guessed it: Rosé. Many people view Rosé as a Summer-only indulgence due to the crisp, light nature of them. However, those same qualities that sound so delicious and refreshing in the Summer heat also segue perfectly into the invigorating spirit of Fall. The smooth and bright characteristics of a Rosé wine make them easy to drink by themselves, structured enough to pair with appetizers, yet still showing rich and ample complexity to gracefully cut through some of your favorite Autumn dishes.
Whether you're yearning for an extended Summer, or eagerly welcoming the change of seasons, Rosé wines are diverse, festive and can be poured each step of the way! Heck, some countries in Europe serve Rosés year-round, a practice that has not gone unnoticed for many millennials here in the US. If you're looking for a versatile and delicious wine “for Fall” Rosé should be on your go-to list!
I Agree, show me the Rosé!
