Yes Way, Rosé: 5 Pinks I’m Loving This Summer

Rose All Day Bar Cart Art print created with museum quality fade resistant 19pt Savoy Cotton archival paper and inkRosé season is officially upon us, as evidenced by the rows and rows displayed at Wegmans, wine shops, and in my Instagram feed. People have gone rosé crazy– from rosé gummi bears to frosé to a Pinknic (a rosé-themed picnic in New York City. Really). And for the true rosé lovers out there, there’s even artwork you can hang above your bar cart (how cute is this print from AThingCreated on Etsy?)

But with so many choices out there, it can be hard to pick just one pretty pink bottle! Here are five of my favorites to sip poolside all summer long.

Early Mountain Rosé (Virginia)

This Virginia belle has been getting a lot of attention and praise recently. In fact, Garden & Gun called it the “rosé you’ll want to drink all summer long.” This wine is crisp, smooth, and delicious. You can visit the beautiful vineyard (which happens to be owned by AOL co-founder Steve Case) and enjoy this lovely wine, or find your bottle here!

Wölffer Estate Summer in a Bottle (New York)

They say not to judge a book by its cover….but I’m in love with this bottle! I was introduced to Wölffer Estate during a recent trip to beautiful Shelter Island, NY and immediately ordered two bottles of this delightful wine on our way home. Find your bottle here!

French Pool Toy (France)

This is another wine I was introduced to on Shelter Island. It’s light and refreshing– and it comes in a plastic bottle, so you can take it anywhere! Perfect for pool parties or sunny days on the beach, this is an accessible and fun option for a summer sipper. Find your bottle here!

J. Mourat Rosé (France)

I discovered this lovely and bright rosé at my favorite wine shop/cafe in Richmond, Barrel Thief. It’s quickly become one of my favorite wines and is perfect for dinner with friends. Find your bottle here! Or visit Barrel Thief at 5805 Patterson Avenue.

King Family Vineyards Crose (Virginia)

This is a cult favorite of Virginia wine lovers! From King Family Vineyards in Crozet, just outside of Charlottesville. Light and crisp and perfect for a “porch or patio,” this is a must-have for any summer stock. You can buy a bottle from the vineyard, or you can stop by Once Upon a Vine, my neighborhood wine shop known for its vast selection of Virginia wines.

Looking for more recommendations? I love this list from VinePair, offering 25 of their favorite picks.

Cheers!
