Damn it is sweltering outside. What is the perfect wine to cool off from a blistering day? For me no wine screams summer more than a beautiful dry rosé. No, not talking sweet white Zinfandel or the Mateus of my youth, but wonderfully refreshing dry rosé wines. While a nice chilled rosé is the perfect patio pounder sipper, they can also pair beautifully with summer fare, ranging from fruit salad topped with poppy seed dressing to grilled salmon or chicken.
So bring on the heat, start the patio party, fire up the grill and allow me to share with you some of the best American rosés I have found for this summer so far. BTW…Patio party season has just begun, so check back with Bacchus and Beery Wine Blog for another rosé update in a month or so.
