Rose wine, Rosato in Italian and Rosado in Spanish and Portugese, is becoming increasingly popular due to its great taste, availability, diversity and versatility.
Common belief says that Rose Wines are produced by the blending of Red wine and White wine, but it is actually produced by allowing the grape juice a short amount of contact with the grape skins of red grapes, after crushing, to allow some colouring to be extracted from the skins from the Anthocyan Pigments.
With great Rose Wines now being produced in some of the best wine regions in the World, even an ardent red wine drinker can be persuaded to enjoy them!
Imagine indulging during those hot summer evenings out on the patio, or with some Salmon in the wintertime!
Try for yourself a delicious White Zinfandel from California or a Spanish Rosado and prepare to be surprised!
