This week we tackle the pink...a wine you need to be drinking.

After a great listener question on whether or not lots of bubbles in a sparkling wine indicate quality (listen to find out!), we give a run down on Rosé.

Here are the notes:

  • How Rosé is made: a little mixology, skin contact, and bleeding...that's right, it gets gory.
  • Which grapes are commonly used and where
  • What exactly is Blush and what's the difference between blush and Rosé
  • How do you know if you are getting a sweet, white Zinfandel type wine or a dry Rosé?
  • Regions that make pink wine: Rosé Champagne, Rosado, pink from the US, other regions around the world
  • Other variations of Rosé: Vin Gris, orange wine
  • Why vintage matters
  • Serving temperatures and ideas on food pairings

And the Grape of the Week (I know we've been slacking...): Mourvédre!
