It's National Rosé Day, a stellar excuse to celebrate one of the oldest known types of wine, dating back as far as 600 BC. Yep, talk about a tree-top flyer in the world of wine when it comes to fame among the blends. Rosé wines are generally made from red grapes and are very versatile wines that complement many types of food, especially come summer time e.g. now!

Rosé is lighter than red wine and deeper than white wine. The pink color of rosé wine depends on the time the grape skin stays in contact with the juice, also known as maceration. There are rosé wines that are semi-sparkling or sparkling, with different intensities of sweetness levels and dryness.

Celebrate National Rosé Day by having a bottle of Rosé wine with dinner or simply invite friends over for h’orderves and enjoy each other’s company.  Share your special evening on Social Media on Facebook@NationalRoséDay and Instagram@nationalroseday using #NationalRoséDay.
