Drink Pink: Six PA Rosé Wines We Love

Celebrate Spring With These Locally-Made Rosé Wines

by Michele Gargiulo, wine and spirits editor

Ready for warm weather, outdoor fun – and rosé? Nothing says spring like a refreshing, flavorful rosé. Some of our favorite rosés are made in  Pennsylvania!

What is rosé? Well, these pink wines are made a variety of ways. They can be made from the “free run” juice. That’s created when, during the grapes’ harvest, the gentle pressure of the wines on top crush the wines on bottom. That releases  small amounts of juice.

Rosé can also be made from blending a dash of a red wine with white wine. That’s how rosé Champagne is made! These pretty wines can also be made when winemakers squish the red fruit and leave the crushed grapes with the juices for a period of time. That allows the juice to soak up the beautiful coloring of the skins.
