Wino Wednesday - 5 Favorite Rosé Wines

Linking up with Amanda from Kids & Cabernet today for Wino Wednesday!

You guys know by now that Rosé is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world. 

It's neither red nor white and the furthest thing from Great Aunt Ethel's sweet white zinfandel (yuck!). 

It's pretty much perfect and there's really no reason to drink anything else. 

I break all the rules and drink it year round (because I'm no dummy), but it definitely pairs perfectly with a warm, sunny day!

When choosing a Rosé at the store, remember that lighter is usually better and try to find one from the Provence region of France.  

These are my current favorite Rosé wines in no particular order....

1.   My new love is a delicious French beauty called Minuty.  It's light, crisp, clean, and goes down way too easy.  My friend, Carrie, recommended it and she loves wine as much as I do.  No wonder I love to hang out with her!  (wink, wink)

2.  Jean-Luc Colombo Cape Bleue is on a few of the local wine menus in Charleston.  It's a good one!  Order it!

3.  My rock, my love, my everything.  My Whispering Angel.

4. La Vieille Ferme is super budget friendly and just right for casual, every day drinking.  I call it my rooster wine.  Whole Foods always has it on sale for $6.99.  I buy it in bulk!  

5.  My neighborhood Harris Teeter started carrying this lovely label and I was overjoyed when I discovered how tasty it is!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because I'm hanging out on the porch with the pooch this morning while the house inspection is underway.  Fingers crossed! 


  1. Yay!! Glad you linked up. Thanks for the recs. I LOVED Whispering Angel and always pick up the rooster wine when I go to TJ's and that's what I call it too haha.

  2. I'm going to have to try the Whispering Angel, everyone raves about it!

  3. I cracked up when I read your rock Whispering Angel. I still haven't tried it and really need to get on that! I wrote down these recs for my next Total wine trip! Thanks for the heads up!

  4. Good luck with your house inspection!! These all look like fantastic wine options, and they're all so affordable! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. Rosés are my absolute favorite too and I'm always on the hunt for new ones! I love Whispering Angel also, but the rest are new to me, so can't wait to sample them all! Good luck on your home inspection!

  6. Hahah "my rock, my love, my everything." Pretty much sums up my feeling about vino in general! I'll be referring to this in the near future ;)

  7. Found you from the Wino Wednesday linkup...I'm not a big Rose fan, but it really hits the spot on a hot day! I need to try the "rooster wine," I won't feel bad downing a couple of those by the pool! :)

    I do what I want.

  8. Oh, these look so interesting. Making my list to try a few. Linking from Wino Wednesday

  9. I often wonder what I would do without Whispering Angel ;) It's hard to break off and find other Roses, but I will have to give the rest a try!


A toast to you for sharing your thoughts!
