This past Satruday June 10th was National Rosé Day. National Rosé Day is observed annually on the second Saturday in June.

Rosé is probably the oldest known type of wine, dating back as far as 600 BC. Rosé wines are generally made from red grapes and are very versatile wines that complement many types of food. Rosé is lighter than red wine and deeper than white wine.  

The pink color of rosé wine depends on the time the grape skin stays in contact with the juice, also known as maceration. There are rosé wines that are semi-sparkling or sparkling with different intense of sweetness levels and dryness.

Here are a few spots you can celebrate this refreshing wine holiday:
