“I had Jansz sparkling rosé this summer and it was elegant and delicious, $30. They were the first producer there (Tasmania) to make sparkling in the traditional method, so they call it Méthode Tasmanoise! Hope it doesn’t get too hot there to still make these great sparklers.”
“I had to give up two trips to Puglia this year due to work conflicts. Luckily, I was able to channel its goodness with this rosato. Made from native grape Nero di Troia, it has both ripe melon and savory herbs. Excellent for a hearty happy hour on the deck.”

Leyda Pinot Noir Rosé
“Great winery in the Casablanca region in Chile (I’ve been, and it was actually chilly) which makes great Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. The rosé is made from the Pinot of course, and has ripe strawberry and raspberry flavor.”
"Saint Cosme was one of the first in the Gigondas region in the Rhône to work organically in the 1970s. A white blend of Viognier, Marsanne, and Picpoul, this has lots of yellow apple and cantaloupe - very elegant and very delicious."
“A clever and fresh take on a traditional genre deserves the same in a wine. Snap open a can of white raspberry noted Amble + Chase rosé: 40% grenache, 30% syrah, and 30% cinsault from sustainable growers in Provence.”
“If you're rooting for Brady and the Pats: go old world from the Rhône. These Syrahs are generally earthier and more complex, like the Saint Cosme Cote du Rhône with its sandalwood, mellow blackberry, and a hint of dark chocolate.”
