What are the types and styles of rosé wine?

Whether it’s fruity and fun or savory and serious, rosé comes in countless styles. Rosé wine is produced throughout the world from a vast array of local grape varieties and is enjoying a surging popularity among wine drinkers. Southern France (particularly Provence), parts of Spain, Italy and California are among the most famous regions for rosé wine production.

How is rosé wine made?

Rosé wine is made using just a brief period of skin contact with red-skinned grapes—usually just a few hours to a couple of days. The resulting color, depending on the grape variety and winemaking style, will range from pale salmon to bold fuchsia. Fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors, most rosé wine is intended for consumption in its youth.

What gives rosé wine its color?

The length of time the red grape skins stay in contact with their juice, and the particular grape variety(ies) used, are the two main factors that affect the exact color of a rosé wine.

How do you serve rosé wine?

Ideally rosé wine should be stored at about 55F. For serving, cool rosé wines down to about 45 to 50F. (Most refrigerators are colder than this.) As for drinking rosé, the best glasses have a stem and a narrow bowl large enough to allow swirling without spilling.

How long does rosé wine last?

Opened, a bottle of rosé wine will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to a few days. Unopened, most rosé wines stay fresh for a year or two, though in rare cases, high end rosé wines can benefit from a few years of age. If you are planning to invest in rose wine to save for a few years, it’s probably a good idea to consult a wine professional.
