This Rosé Gets the Gold!
This month we’re celebrating the rainbow in true Kitchn style. In other words, we’re eating — and drinking — all the colors. Of course, when it comes to wine, we’re all about pink. Yep, we’re team #yeswayrosé all the way and, to be honest, we haven’t met a rosé we’d kick off our summer tables (or lawns, or pool decks). But that doesn’t mean we don’t play favorites.
Here’s the wine Assistant Editor Sheela Prakash calls her gold standard — and she’ll also be serving it at her wedding.
My Favorite Rosé: Bonny Doon 2015 Vin Gris de Cigare, $18 at Bonny Doon
I discovered this wine at one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants a couple of summers ago and now it’s my gold standard for rosé: light, crisp, and acidic, with just a hint of strawberry. Plus, it has the most perfect pale pink color.
It’s actually the bottle we were drinking outside on our balcony the night my fiancé, Joe, proposed. Now it’s going to be the rosé we serve at the bar at our wedding!
Your turn: What’s your favorite way to drink pink?
