It’s summer and summer makes us think of Rose wine! Enjoy the pink to salmon to copper color and the refreshing acidity to sweetness on the palette.

Rose wine is a versatile and refreshing option that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a variety of dishes. Whether you're a seasoned wine connoisseur or a casual drinker, understanding the principles of wine pairing can help you make the most of your rose wine experience.

Here are the top 5 wine pairing principles for rose wine:

  1. Pair with light and fresh dishes: Rose wine pairs well with light and fresh dishes such as salads, seafood, and grilled vegetables. The lightness of the wine complements the freshness of the ingredients, creating a harmonious balance of flavors.
  2. Consider the sweetness level: Rose wine can range from bone-dry to sweet, so it's important to consider the sweetness level when pairing it with food. Sweeter rose wines pair well with spicy dishes, while drier rose wines pair well with savory dishes.
  3. Match the acidity: The acidity level of the wine should also be considered when pairing it with food. Rose wines with higher acidity levels pair well with acidic dishes such as tomatoes and citrus fruits.
  4. Think about the texture: The texture of the wine can also play a role in pairing it with food. Lighter-bodied rose wines pair well with lighter dishes, while fuller-bodied rose wines pair well with heartier dishes.
  5. Experiment with regional pairings: Rose wines are produced in many regions around the world, each with their own unique flavor profiles. Experimenting with regional pairings can help you discover new and exciting flavor combinations.
