Most people assume Rosé (or Pink wine) is sweet, white-zinfandel, cheap, ersatz wine.
WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!
When I first got into the wine industry a few decades ago, rosé was anything but cool. White Zinfandel from California made the public think that all rosé was sweet, and unfortunately, imports such as Royal Lancers from Portugal and wines such as Sutter Home White Zin confirmed this notion. Today, however, rosé is the second fastest growing segment of the wine market – the United States is the second largest rosé consuming country in the world, following France of course! It accounts for nearly 10% of all wine made worldwide. You’ll find rosé at high-end restaurants and … at Golden Gate Wine Cellars. In fact, this coming Saturday, we will be sampling a few surprisingly delicious Rosé wines in our tasting room. If you are going to be in the bay area on the 24th, be sure to join us!
