Although the wine has roots in Provence, France, winemakers all over the world have keyed into the charms of rosé, and many now take the pink-hued sipper as seriously as their white and red wines. A range of styles and price points means there’s a rosé for every palate and occasion, and with Valentine’s Day — the unofficial start of rosé season — and spring just around the corner, here are our picks for the best rosé wines to celebrate with.
The winery from pioneering winemaker Kathleen Inman follows what they call “sensitive farming” in the vineyards, and their rosé showcases this care and attention. The low-intervention winemaking results in a delicate rosé that pays homage to a special bottle and a romantic Provence picnic Kathleen and her husband had while visiting the south of France over 25 years ago. A wine with a love story? Sounds like the perfect pick for V-Day.
