Don’t be mistaken — rosé isn’t a blend of red & white wine. In fact, that concept was completely rejected by regional winemakers upon suggestion in 2009, when the European Commission proposed a change in quality definition for French rosé. No way, French winemakers said.
Rosé comes from red (or purple) grapes, juice that’s been in contact with the skin for a short period of time. This creates the picturesque pink tones that captivate wine lovers.
