Rosé is no joke.
The pink wine has catapulted into popularity in the United States over the past few years. Wine producers are overwhelmed with its high demand, but it doesn’t look like it will slow down—research shows that rosé sales are strong all year long.
Pink is the color of the Millennial generation, so it’s fitting that rosé is their drink of choice. Long live #RoséAllDay
The skin of the grapes determines the color of the rosé, not the juice inside.
There are three different ways to make rose—direct pressing, maceration, and blending. Direct pressing is a process normally used for white wine; maceration is a process typically used for red wine; blending is a process that mixes red wine with white wine. Blending has different rules and restrictions in the EU than in the US. (BK Wines)
