The Best Dry Rosés and Pink Wines

Dry rosé is popular, particularly during the summer months. Its style, traditionally dry and light, appeals both to white and red wine drinkers seeking something cool and refreshing to help beat the heat. Winemakers produce rosé by preventing the red grapes from extended contact with the skins which gives red wines their robust flavor and tannic structure, or as a result of the saignée process. The Mediterranean nations, most notably France, Italy and Spain, reign supreme in rosé production, but an increasing number of American wineries have begun producing world-class rosé wines.
