In a season full of matrimonial merriment, you may find yourself in need of a bubbly beverage, or a nice substitute if bubbles aren’t your bag. These four selections showcase the excellence of effervescence and top-rate rosés – four delicious drinks to whet your whistle while you celebrate the season.
Connected by a common varietal,
all four of these wines are largely comprised of pinot noir grapes. Known for their approachable nature, light tannins, and earthy sweet aroma, pinot noir is the highly drinkable crowd-pleaser of dry reds. When used in combination with other varieties to create blends and/or fermented with only a portion of the grape skins, the result is a rosé, with its characteristically pink color and sweeter flavor profile.
All four wines are exceptional choices this time of year as the season turns and the weather dances between brisk and balmy. Enjoy them on a sunny veranda, at brunch, or toasting special events. Their friendly flavor profile makes them ideal for wine sampling novices and experienced enthusiasts alike.
