Rose Wine

A rosé (from French: rosé also known as rosado in Portugal and Spanish-speaking countries or rosato in Italy) is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. The pink color can range from a pale "onion"-skin orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the grape varieties used and winemaking techniques. There are three major ways to produce rosé wine: skin contact, saignée and blending. Rosé wines can be made still, semi-sparkling or sparkling and with a wide range of sweetness levels from bone-dry Provençal rosé to sweet White Zinfandels and blushes. Rosé are made from a wide variety of grapes and can be found all across the globe.

When rosé wine is the primary product, it is produced with the skin contact method. Black-skinned grapes are crushed and the skins are allowed to remain in contact with the juice for a short period, typically one to three days.[3] The must is then pressed, and the skins are discarded rather than left in contact throughout fermentation (as with red wine making). The longer that the skins are left in contact with the juice, the more intense the color of the final wine.

  2. Castello Poggio Moscato Rosato

Pedroncelli Zinfandel Rose

Ruby-red color with aromas of just-picked strawberries. Red raspberry, currant and plum flavors are highlighted in this crisp, enjoyable wine. We particularly enjoy this wine with burgers, roast chicken or grilled salmon.

Castello del Poggio Moscato Rosato

Fizzy pink color. Nice raspberry & cherry infused Moscato (orange citrus) nose. Sweet entry of fizzy, juicy cherry laced with orange zest. Finishes with good acidity. Lovely sweet fizzy wine! Nicely balanced & unique which gets it a WOW rating. Grandma will love it.
