The wine region of Provence, France creates reliable and consistent Roses. When in doubt you can always look to Provence for a high-quality Rose. The pink hue of Rose is created in the fermentation process by allowing the juice to have brief contact with the grape skins for a few days. The color can range from light salmon to a bolder magenta color. The majority of Roses are based on blends from the Grenache or Pinot Noir grape.

Here are a couple of recommendations to enjoy during the Summertime. Drink these wines if you are feeling playful, just having some fun or looking for something savory and serious.
