Spier Signature Chardonnay/Pinot Noir

South Africa is playing at a high level in the international wine market, thanks to reputable producers like Spier. The long-standing Stellenbosch winery promotes ethical practices and a holistic approach, as evidenced by the quality of its various endeavors in food, wine, and hospitality. As an all-around lifestyle company, Spier knows the importance of having a vibrant rosé ready to go.

Made with almost equal parts chardonnay and pinot noir, this rosé is one of few examples made by mixing red and white grapes. The color is pale salmon and a hint of the subtle and balanced wine in the glass. The result is fruity, with notes of strawberry, raspberry, and apple on the palate. Serve it chilled for a refreshing accompaniment to any occasion, from brunch to late-night campfire chats. The delicate aromas make a great pairing for seafood and light snacks, and it does just as well as a solo sipper.

Albino Armani Rosé

Although Italy is often revered for its hearty red wines, you'll be pleasantly surprised if you give this rosé a chance. Encompassing vineyards in three regions in Northern Italy, Albino Armani winery is a testament to the prized growing conditions of the area. The vineyards all have high altitudes in common, a characteristic that provides freshness and vitality. With hot sunny days and cool nights, the grapes can retain their acidity as they ripen, leading to crisp wines.

The rosé is produced with a blend of red grapes from the Adige Valley, near the Garda Lake. The influence of the body of water allows the fruit to mature fully, giving off berry-forward notes in the glass. This wine will pair with plenty of dishes and light bites, such as cheese boards, cured meats, pizza, chicken, and seafood. For a savory and sophisticated sipper, this crisp and light rosé will satisfy your desires at a minimal cost.

The Hidden Sea Rosé

Whereas some wineries see themselves as stewards of the land, The Hidden Sea extends its care to the ocean. With the goal of removing 10 plastic bottles from the water per bottle of wine sold, the winery is firmly dedicated to environmental sustainability. The Australian company produces a range of easy-drinking wines, featuring sea life on the labels.

The Hidden Sea Rosé offers something for all types of wine drinkers. It's light and bright while simultaneously showcasing vibrant fruity aromas. Berries and tropical fruits are present in every zesty sip, while a rich creaminess rounds it out. The pale hue comes courtesy of a lineup of grapes — shiraz, pinot gris, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, sémillon, and merlot all make an appearance.

The result is nuanced yet not overly complex, making this an excellent option to bring to the beach, on a picnic, or to serve on your patio. Enjoy it by itself or serve it with pork, salmon, cheese, or snacks.

Yalumba Y Series Sangiovese Rosé

Known as one of Australia's more innovative wineries, Yalumba is always eager to experiment, while showcasing the characteristics that make South Australia such an exceptional growing area. Whether it's developing new sustainable practices or planting grape varieties that aren't common to the region, the results are consistently high caliber.

Sangiovese may be the star grape of Italy's famous Chianti region, but over the past half-century, it has settled nicely in Australia's Barossa Valley. Yalumba features the Italian grape as a rosé in its Y series, a collection of wines that highlight the qualities of the terroir. With delicate floral notes and aromas of berry, grapefruit, watermelon, and rhubarb, this pretty pink stunner offers something for all. Subtle hints of cinnamon and an herbaceous touch of tarragon make this wine stand out with style. You'll want to keep a bottle stocked to serve with your favorite grilled seafood dishes and appetizers, such as soft cheeses, salads, and charcuterie.

Calcu Tiny Blocks Rosé

Red wines are a noteworthy part of Chile's viticultural offerings but don't discount the country's splendid rosés. Calcu Vineyards is located in the famed Colchagua Valley, relatively close to the Pacific coast. The vines are situated at altitude which provides them with cooling breezes to maintain a fresh and vibrant profile with concentrated fruit aromas.

Tiny Blocks is one of the winery's collections that showcases the vineyard's multitude of plots, each with different qualities that set them apart from the next. The rosé wine is made with a two-to-one ratio of malbec to petit verdot grapes. The former displays bright berry aromas while the latter gives the wine structure and body. With ripe fruit aromas and crisp freshness, this Chilean rosé combines our favorite qualities of red and white wines into this stellar pink. Serve seafood risotto, goat cheese, or grilled chicken to match this well-balanced medium-bodied wine.

Gérard Bertrand Côte des Roses

If you've never seen a bottle of Gérard Bertrand Côte des Roses in stores, you may want to look closer. This floral-themed rosé bottle hits shelves in seasonal waves, satisfying the average rosé lover's desire for a fresh pink wine. Straight from the Mediterranean, it exudes sunny patio vibes in every sip. The reputable French producer has a wide range of collections, from serious reds to fun rosés.

This delicate salmon-hued wine is an ode to the iconic rosés of Southern France, and fans have taken note. Classic grape varieties — grenache, cinsault, and syrah — display notes of red fruit, black and red currants, and citrus. An underlying hint of roses brings out a floral element that ties in with the bottle's aesthetic. Rich in aromas yet lively enough to quench your thirst, this popular rosé pairs well with seafood dishes such as crab cakes, grilled salmon, and sushi. The floral aromas can handle a bit of spice, or keep it light and serve it along with a salad.

M. Chapoutier Belleruche Rosé

The Southern Rhône Valley in France is a hot spot for red varieties, which can all be used to make various styles of rosé. While the Tavel appellation is revered for its deeply-hued pink wines, they tend to be a bit pricier than entry-level regional bottles. Nevertheless, in the hands of a good producer, all levels offer great value.

M. Chapoutier has been a leading producer in the area for the last 200 years. The family winery is always at the forefront of innovation, finding ways to highlight the qualities of the local terroir while maintaining equilibrium with the surrounding environment. Thanks to a range of collections, wine lovers of all budgets can satisfy their desire to try something new.

The Tradition line showcases the features of the grape varieties and the vineyards where they are grown. Belleruche rosé is predominantly grenache-based, with smaller amounts of cinsault and syrah to balance the taste. With fruit-forward aromas and a crisp finish, you'll want to keep a bottle in stock. Notes of red berries mingle with zesty grapefruit, keeping this light and springy in the glass. Serve it with a salmon salad, a Mediterranean-inspired cod dish, or as a prelude for a meal to come.

Seastone Rosé

Portugal and Vinho Verde go hand in hand, but the lesser-known style from this region comes in a pretty pink hue. Much like its spritzy white counterpart, the rosé is typically refreshing, light, and low in alcohol. Even better, the price tag tends to be on the lower end, making this a great option to bring to a casual barbecue or picnic. If you're going to be drinking wine out of plastic cups, you really don't want to splurge on the finest.

Seastone Rosé is a reliable choice for occasions when you want to sip on an easy-going wine without getting a crushing headache if you have an extra glass. Clocking in at 10% ABV, serve it chilled on hot summer days. The wine delivers a hint of effervescence, as well as a soft and rounded mouthfeel that goes down smoothly. With notes of strawberries, stonefruit, and citrus, this pleasant rosé pairs well with mixed appetizers, seafood, charcuterie, and salad. And with the lower alcohol content, you can sip on a glass as you prep your meal without feeling the effects too much.

Cune Rosado

Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (aka CVNE) is a family-owned company that encompasses various wineries across the primary growing regions of Spain. Going strong for almost a century and a half, the wine group seeks to highlight the best characteristics of the distinct areas of the country. Cune rosado is a fine example of these philosophies, made with tempranillo grapes from Rioja. Fine Rioja reds are well worth the patience of aging them, but for immediate drinking, you can't go wrong with this take on rosé.

After the grapes are harvested, the skins remain in contact with the juice for up to two days to develop a deep pink hue. The wine is fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks to maintain vibrant fruit aromas that make it so pleasant to sip. The bold color hints at the taste, which is ripe with berries and notes of licorice. Serve this with hard cheese, grilled fish, pasta salad, and poultry for a lighter yet no less flavorful wine from Rioja.

Martin Ray Angeline Vineyards Rosé

Although opinions of U.S. rosé wines might be tarnished by consumers who want nothing to do with white zinfandel, there are plenty of charming options to choose from if you put that aside. Angeline Vineyards is a brand under Martin Ray Winery that focuses solely on pinot noir grapes from California. With all efforts in the vineyard and cellar directed toward producing the most dazzling pinots that express the various regional appellations, you can bet that the brand's rosé is on point.

Sustainable viticulture is the standard at Angeline, and winemaking practices are low-intervention, including fermenting the fruit with native yeasts. The rosé pinot noir highlights these features thanks to its delicate lightness and vibrant aromas. Notes of wild berries, lemon zest, watermelon rind, and rose petals are present on the palate, and the crisp acidity keeps it refreshing with every sip. Serve it with shrimp, spicy dishes, appetizers, and even fruit-based desserts.

Saladini Pilastri Consenso Rsato

Italy prides itself on its rich and layered red wines made with sangiovese grapes, but if it was up to us, we'd boast about the rosés made with this variety too. Saladini Pilastri winery goes back a few centuries, and these traditions paired with the unique terroir are a recipe for success. Situated in the Marche province in close proximity to the Adriatic Sea, the vineyards receive optimal conditions to ripen the grapes to their full potential.

Consenso rosato displays a deep salmon hue and aromas of strawberries, raspberries, and roses. The fruit-forward nature is balanced by acidity, making this a well-rounded wine to serve with or without food. Thanks to its fuller body and structure, this pleasant rosé can stand up to a wide range of foods. Serve it with light barbecue options like grilled chicken breast or salmon burgers, or chill a bottle to go with an easy pizza or pasta night dinner.

Château Belingard Rosé

Bordeaux reds are the source of lots of excitement for wine aficionados, but the same varieties vinified into rosé wines are well worth the enthusiasm too. Château Belingard covers various vineyard areas in the Bordeaux appellation, including Bergerac, where the grapes for this rosé are grown.

The wine is made with predominantly cabernet sauvignon and about a third of merlot. The result is silky smooth, with subtle tannins that add structure and depth. Notes of red fruit, citrus, and stone fruit are heavy on the nose, and a bright acidity rounds out every sip. With the interplay of fruit and tartness, the result is a pleasant and easy-drinking wine.

Serve this nicely chilled as an aperitif, or pour it along with a simple charcuterie board. Considering its rounded structure and bold taste, you can serve this with grilled fish dishes, poultry, and spiced Asian cuisine as well, for a tasty pairing that will make even the biggest Bordeaux devotee forget all about first-growth châteaux.

Samuel Robert Winery Pinot Noir Rosé

There's no arguing with the quality of Oregon pinot noir, and we're glad that winemakers are experimenting with red and rosé styles of the grape. Samuel Robert Winery is a husband and wife venture in the Willamette Valley wine region. The family-owned winery focuses primarily on the pinot noir variety, which is a sign of the exceptional nuance of aromas its range of wines offers.

The Vineyard Reserve pinot noir rosé displays a perfectly blushed pink allure in the glass. On the nose, you'll get rich notes of strawberries, red plums, watermelon, and citrus. When you take a sip, you can expect a smooth and rounded medium-bodied wine, brimming with fruity flavors and a crisp finish. This rosé is soft around the edges yet it boasts a mouthwatering quality that is especially refreshing.

A subtle sweetness makes this easy to please, whether you're pouring it to accompany a sunny patio afternoon or serving it with food. Thanks to its gentle acidity, this works well with salads that include fruit ingredients — a watermelon and feta salad would be our go-to choice. Meanwhile, it's sure to satisfy at a barbecue along with a burger and pasta salad.

Terre di Talamo Piano Piano

If you tend to dismiss rosé wines because you think they're all delicate and sweet, think again. The characteristics of any pink wine depend on a number of factors, including the varieties, growing region, and what happens in the cellar. If you want something a little bolder, then look for grapes with this feature. Cabernet sauvignon and sangiovese are known for producing some of the heartier red wines around, and the result is unique when they are blended together and vinified as a rosé.

Terre di Talamo is a Tuscan winery under Bacci Wines, with vineyards in close proximity to the Mediterranean Sea. The saline influence results in bright and vibrant wines, and Piano Piano is a fine example. While the wine displays a pale hue in the glass, it exudes rich and full aromas on the palate. Floral notes mingle with cherry and strawberry, while an herbaceous hint of mint keeps it crisp. Enjoy this as an aperitif, with grilled seafood, or with savory vegetarian pies.

Vins Breban Jacques Pelvas rosé sparkling brut

If you love rosé, it doesn't get much better than bubbly rosé. Vins Bréban brings wines from across the Provence region to the market, allowing consumers to discover smaller producers they may have skipped over. Jacques Pelvas brut is a sparkling rosé made with the grenache variety. The color is pleasantly light, but this bottle packs in plenty of flavor. Notes of red fruit, berries, and apples are present in the glass, making this fruit-forward sparkler incredibly pleasant to sip.

Serve it as an aperitif and savor the fine bubbles on the palate to celebrate an occasion — or just an ordinary day at this price point! The elegant structure helps this wine pair well with light appetizers and snacks, such as cheese and charcuterie. On the other end of the flavor spectrum, this sparkling rosé is a delightful match for spiced Asian cuisine, light fish dishes such as sushi, and even fish and chips.
