Rosé wines are pink; however, they are not sweet, as some people think. California blush wines are also pink (e.g. White Zinfandel) and tend to be sweet.

Wines from Old World producers like France, Italy and Spain are typically made from grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Merlot and Pinot Noir. These are all grapes used in making familiar red wines. In the process of making a rosé wine, the winemaker will remove the grape skins, from which the red color comes, when he or she is satisfied with the level of color attained in the juice.

All of the rosé wines in stock at E-Ville Spirits are dry wines with a hint of fruit and can be enjoyed chilled by the glass or with countless Mediterranean foods, seafood or even a pizza or burger.

I am a red wine guy and my wife drinks white, but during the warmer months we both enjoy sharing a beautiful rose’ out under our gazebo.

The next time you’re shopping for wine, give rosé a try …I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
