The Best Rosé Wines - The Reverse Wine Snob Picks!
Rosé is one of the hottest categories in wine although it hasn't always been that way. When we started this site in 2011 getting people to drink the delightful dry examples was a bit like pulling teeth. Conditioned by the gallon jugs of pink syrupy slop on grocery store shelves most people thought rosé only existed in the impossibly sweet form. Thanks to the newfound availability of dry wines from places like Provence and beyond however that perception has changed.
Of course the flip side of this surge in popularity is that everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon which means that many of the new options just aren't that good. We help you separate the wheat from the chaff in our giant list of The Best Rosé Wines Under $20!
Before we get to the picks; however, let's take a quick look at how rosé is made. The color in red wine comes from dark grape skins being left in contact with the juice during fermentation. If you remove the skin or juice part way through fermentation, you end up with a light red, or pink, wine. (The skin is also what imparts much of the tannins to the wine.)
One other note about this style that many people do not recognize -- they are some of the most food flexible types of wine out there. From salads to barbecue to all your Thanksgiving favorites rosé is one of the best options to pair with your meals.
