All About Rosé
You’re not alone if your first thought when you hear “rosé” is of white zinfandel, that super sweet blush juice which dominated the box-format wine market for years. However, the style and technique of rosé goes way beyond that. In fact, pink wine ranges from bone-dry to sugary sweet, and from the most transparent hue of ruby on up to a saturated, opaque crimson. Rosé is at least as diverse in style as white and red wines, and definitely more colorful.
Within the past years, the American market for all styles of rosé has exploded. More frequently we are choosing rosé as a table wine, or as a perfect dinner pairing. In this class we’ll be exploring the various ways rosé is produced, the many appearances and flavors it can assume, and why more and more Americans have fallen for this love-able libation.
