Did You Know?... About Rosé Wine

While they seldom make up as much of a wine menu as white or red options, rosé wines can be very interesting, and deserve their own special attention. Rosé wines can be made either by taking the skins out of a to-be-red-wine much sooner (within a day) than usual, or by bleeding off some of the juice while making a red wine, creating one batch of deep red wine and one batch of lighter rose. Because they require pigmentation from the skins of red grapes, it follows that all rosés are made from red wine grapes. They can run the full range of styles: from sweet, to light and crisp, to earthy and aggressive.
