The Wisdom Of The Rose

 For a long time, I thought I did not like wine. Then I tried a Rosé. It was simply delicious, and there was no turning back. 

 When I researched rosé wines, I found a lot of snobbishness online. This seems to come from two camps. One camp considers rosé too easy-drinking and accessible, and therefore common. The other camp has a more misogynistic streak and considers rosé for “girls”.

Both lazy arguments against rosé had little effect on me. Wine does not lose its value because more people happen to like it, and I have never been inclined to listen to misogynistic nonsense. But ignoring the noise was not enough for me.

The way I see it, rosé is not simply “good enough” to be considered a serious wine. It has its own properties that make drinking different rosés a nuanced experience. For me, there is wisdom in good rosé wine. It is gentle and accessible. It is a reprieve from the sharp bitterness that life sometimes gives us. While sharper wines can also be excellent choices, there are times when only that gentle touch makes sense.

Rosé wine is made by leaving the skins with the red grapes as they ferment. You can make rosé from any type of grape, and so there is a huge variety of different types. If you are looking to try a good rosé, the following top 3 will give you the soft experience you need.

Top 3 Rosés

1. Champagne

Not everyone realizes that you can get Champagne rosé, but it is perfect for a low-key celebration. When you are relaxing with the people you love in a beautiful environment, nothing is better than a Champagne rosé.

2. Pinot Noir

A Pinot Noir rosé is an experience in subtle explosions. Pinot Noir has a strong flavor, and a rosé style tempers it beautifully. You will taste melon and berry with a distinct acidity. It is best enjoyed on a gorgeous beach.

3. Syrah

Syrah rosé is a wonderful experience, due to its bold flavors, with a hint of white pepper, olive, and a unique fruitiness. It goes perfectly with strong foods and will be welcome in just about any setting.

What if you want to try different rosés but just can not afford it? The good news is, you do not have to give up on the wisdom of the rosé.

Save money with a wine club

You can get a wide variety of tasting experiences when you join a rosé wine club. A wine club membership is an affordable way of having different wines delivered to you regularly for tasting and drinking. You will get a quality bottle upon signing up, and you will subsequently receive tasters, special editions, bottles, discounts, and more. You will also become part of a community of rosé lovers – people who are attuned to the wisdom of the rosé and will not apologize for it.

Rosé is the perfect type of wine, gentle and nuanced, providing a comforting experience. Try the different varieties, and you will be amazed at the different flavors you taste.
