Celebrate National Rosé Day on Saturday!

Sangiovese Rosé from V. Sattui Winery in Napa

Saturday, June 9 is National Rosé Day! Do you have a rosé wine waiting to be enjoyed so you can celebrate National Rosé Day? If not, check with your neighborhood winery to see if they are producing a rosé wine. Many rosés are delicious as aperitifs while others pair delightfully with a variey of foods including poultry, fish and salads.

History of National Rosé Day

Bodvár, House of Rosés developed the concept if a National Rosé Day for the United States.  They selected the second Saturday of June for the annual event. According to the Bodvár website, “Our goal is to raise awareness and give Rosé lovers a day to celebrate with ‘summer’s water’ all over the world.” June 13, 2015 was the first annual National Rosé Day. 

Traditionally rosés are produced by exposing the juice of the grapes to the grape skins for a limited amount of time. Even a few minutes of skin contact will begin to tint the juice. The longer the skin contact, the darker the final wine. Light rosés are particularly good for summer as the rosés are not as intense and the mouthfeel is lighter. White and red wine lovers can find rosés they are likely to enjoy.

Cheers! Kathy
