The rosy-hued wine known as Rosé used to only be popular for Valentine’s, but that is changing. Offering a nice transition point for white wine drinkers moving into reds, rosés also showcases the various varietals of reds that are used in making these pinks. They also represent easier access, without all the constraints and traditional formalities of more high profile reds, it symbolizes greater freedom without the snobbery of some.

Wonderful for outdoor and deck drinking, most are dry (don’t confuse Rosés with the White Zinfandel which has the same pink color and is quite sweet), delicate, diverse and perfect when drunk cool in the spring and summertime. It is a flexible food pairing wine too. While Provence and Rhone’s are very popular with North Americans, the other countries like Spain and Portugal are also gaining popularity.

This saturday, deVine is hosting a ‘Drink Pink’ sit-down tasting at 7pm. Discover the diversity and see if it fits your palate while discovering the light and breezy freshness of these rosés. There are only a few spots left for this tasting, you can register online
