This Saturday celebrate National Rosé Day by curating your own pool-side wine tasting with a couple of these selected bottles. What better way to kick off the summer and stay cool than by putting two different wines head to head and seeing which one you like best? Will you like a bright California or floral Italian rosé better? That is where all the fun lies. Cheers!
The Pale ($16.99)
From the creators of Whispering Angel, this dry rosé boasts a light fruit taste and a clean finish.
Pasqua 11 Minutes Rosé ($19)
This Italian wine has floral notes and a smooth finish.
Angels & Cowboys ($24.99)
Sourced from several northern California vineyards, this inaugural brut sparkling rosé has refreshing berry and watermelon notes. The brand is also donating a portion of proceeds from every bottle to the World Central Kitchen.
M de Minuty ($27)
Hailing from the south of France, this Côtes de Provence rosé is balanced and bright.
Rose et Or ($55)
This gentle Côtes de Provence rosé has complex flavors and notes of pink grapefruit and white peach.
