From light and finely perfumed Provence styles to bolder and more fruit-forward Sicilian, Californian, and Bordeaux Rosé, a recent trend has increased the thirst for all things pink among a great many consumers. Rosé wines are highly approachable and easy to drink, fresh and flavorful, and at the same time, pair amazingly with a wide range of food. At Empire Wine, we have a terrific selection waiting for you to explore!
Rosé is a type of wine that incorporates the pink-reddish light color from the grape skins, but not enough to be considered a red wine. Rosé is made when the skins of red grapes are in contact with the wine for a very short time. Apart from using different grape varieties, the winemaker can choose the quality and length of this process, called maceration, and decide when to remove the red grape skins (the red pigment) to achieve different styles.
