While there’s never a bad time to drink any kind of wine, I do have to say that rosé is just perfect for the summer. Rosé is light and refreshing, and solves the age old problem of the white or red decision. Whether you’re sipping on a patio, toting along on a picnic or enjoying with friends, here are 7 perfect-for-summer Rosés to help you celebrate National Rosé Day!
7 Perfect-For-Summer Rosés to Help You Celebrate National Rosé Day!
In no particular order, I’m going to share with you 7 rosés I think you’ll enjoy this summer! Whether you prefer sweeter or drier wines, there’s something on this list for everyone.
You may notice a majority of these wines are from Ontario Wineries – this is because I reside in Ontario, Canada! In Southern Ontario (think Niagara-On-The-Lake area), the combination of the climate and soil conditions produce some of the most fantastic wines! If this is something that interests you, you can read more about the Niagara Region here!
I have also included a few rosé inspired recipes & accessories below! I hope you feel inspired to take your rosé to the next level!
