8 Rosé Wine Fun Facts

It may be the end of summer, but don’t put away the rosé! This fabulously versatile wine is right in style for fall & winter too!

It got it’s “spring/summer wine” reputation because that’s when the new batches usually hit the market. But just as you’d enjoy any dry white wine year-round, you can enjoy rosé too.

Rosé wine has been gaining in popularity over the last decade, and especially in the last few years. I think my first realization that it was “chic” was when I saw Lisa Vanderpump on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills sipping it several seasons back.

If it’s good enough for a rich Brit living in Beverly Hills, then it’s good enough for me!

Add Rosé for Entertaining at home

I’ve been enjoying my own share of Rosé this summer and one of my favorites is Tegernseerhof Rosé from Austria. Before we get to the facts, here are some fun ways to incorporate Rosé into your entertaining.

Rosé wine fun facts

  1. It was the first wine created, about 7000 BC. Red and white wines came a few thousand years later.
  2. Rosé gets it’s pink color from the fact that the skin is left to sit in contact with the crushed grape for a while. The longer it sits, the darker the pink color will be. The skin is removed after a few hours or up to 3 days.
  3. Rosé wine is not meant to be “aged.” It’s best consumed within 2-3 years of it’s release.
  4. The Provence region of France is considered to be the most consistent for creating high quality Rosé at any price point. When in doubt, choose one from this region.
  5. In France it’s called Rosé, in Italy they’re called Rosato, and in Spain it’s Rosado.
  6. Don’t confuse Rosé with Blush. Blush wines are semi-sweet, while Rosé is dry.
  7. Rosé is made from red grape varieties, but fermented like white wine, and it’s best served chilled, like other white wine {50-60 degrees F}.
  8. Rosé is not just for summer sipping! It’s a terrific aperitif or dinner wine all year round, and pairs well with bbq, spicy food, chicken & pork, sushi, seafood, charcuterie & cheese, tapas, salads, pizza, and more!
