Spring means lots of things; the returning of warmer weather, green grass and blooming flowers, but most importantly those beautiful pink hues – Rose.
Rose obtains its color from including contact with the grape skins during production. The longer the contact, the rosier the wine, but never too much that it fully becomes a red wine. A variety of grapes, dry and sweetness levels, and colors make up the rose wines that we love. Classique keeps a number of different roses from around the world year round to ensure that you can have the perfect pink drink! Keep a lookout for these delicious wines arriving early spring…
