Happy National Rosé Day! I launched my blog on National Rosé Day in 2017, so this is also my 2-year blogaversary!
And while we’re naming off reasons to celebrate, here’s another one- I accepted a new job as Marketing Director at a company in Los Angeles, and I start on Monday. So this wine holiday couldn’t have come at a better time! I’m ready to pop open some bottles and spread the pink liquid love.
I’ve been drinking less wine on a regular basis lately, but I’ve still had the chance to explore some pretty awesome rosés this year. Today, I want to share them with you! Some are repeats that I keep in my rotation and others are new finds.
5 Rosé Wines I’m Loving Right Now
1. Mandrarossa Perricone Rosé, $18
This rosé comes from Sicily and is made from an indigenous Sicilian grape called Perricone. I was recently sent this wine and instantly fell love with the gorgeous salmon color and turquoise label. This is a dry, more full-bodied rosé with notes of strawberry, red cherry, herb and citrus. It’s crisp and bright, but not as acidic as your typical Provencal rosé. You can learn more about this wine here.
2. Chateau de Berne Inspiration Rosé, $20
This Grenache-dominant Provencal rosé tastes like summer in a bottle! It’s pale pink with notes of strawberry, watermelon and citrus, and smells like a warm summer day with a hint of fresh flowers. It’s the perfect drink to sip outside on the porch, by the pool or at a BBQ. Check it out here.
3. Laurent Perrier Cuvée Rosé Champagne, $80
Looking for a special occasion bottle to pop? This is the perfect choice! This bubbly brut (dry) rosé is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes and is one of the most popular rosés in the world. You’ll find notes of strawberry, raspberry, cherry and orange zest on the nose and lots of red berries on the palette. Read more and purchase here.
4. Bonterra Organic Rosé, $18
I’ve shared this rosé many times, and I keep coming back to it. This organic wine has aromas of strawberry, key lime, rosewater and hints of pineapple. The pallet has notes of ripe peaches, watermelon and pomegranate. It’s off-dry and just so good! Read more and purchase here.
5. WineSociety Chance Canned Rosé, $12/can
I recently discovered this wine at the LA Wine Festival in Long Beach! I love a good canned wine, and this wine is premium and sourced from Napa, CA. I was super impressed with this fruity, balanced, off-dry wine and hope to try it again soon. You can check it out here.
