About Rose wine

A rose is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. The pink color can range from a pale 'onion'-skin orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the grape varieties used and winemaking techniques. There are three major ways to produce ros wine: skin contact, saigne and blending. Ros wines can be made still, semi-sparkling or sparkling and with a wide range of sweetness levels from bone-dry Provenal ros to sweet White Zinfandels and blushes. Ros are made from a wide variety of grapes and can be found all across the globe.
