Rosés : in the spotlight this summer


Rosé is the most delicate of wines to produce, most of them designed to be consumed in the freshness of their youth. The signature pink color of these wines is achieved by skin contact, temperature and maceration during the vinification process. In these steps lie the secrets to the colors, aromas and elegance that make rose wines a summertime favorite.

We present our selection of Rosés, irresistible and essential for the summer.
