Rosé

Rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enoough to qualify it as a red wine. It  may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straight forward to make with the skin contact method. the pink color can range from a pale 'onion skin' orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the varietals used and winemaking techniques. There are three major ways to produce rosé wine; skin contact, saignée and blending. Rosé wines can be made still, semi-sparkling or sparkling and with a wide range of sweetness levels from bone-dry provencal rosé to sweet white zinfandel and blushes. Rosé wines are made from a wide variety grapes and can be found all around the globe.
