YES WAY ROSE!

yes-way-rose

I must admit, the only thing I knew until recently about rosé was two things: pretty champagne and white zinfandel…..  With a deep hatred for sweet wine I just never bothered learning anything about Rose because I assumed it was all super sweet like the Zinfandel varieties.  Silly girl.

After a trip to the South of France a few years back I quickly noticed it was in almost everyone’s glass and it wasn’t until this year that I took the plunge and started asking my favorite bartenders and wine-os for recommendations.  Understanding my tastes they quickly steered me towards fabulously crisp, dry, beautiful rosés that perfectly complimented a slow sipping summer night.

If you’re a newbie like me (and have an equal affliction for pink) give one of these a whirl and let me know what you think:

Campo Viejo Rioja

Minuty

Hidden Bench

Les Jamelles

Gran Feudo

Sables d’Azur

Stoneleigh

And two sparkling:

Henry of Pelham

Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque (for something special)

Happy long weekend to my fellow Canadians and happy Friday to the rest of you lovely people!
