A Dozen Rosés For Your Wine Lover on Valentine’s Day

Rosés are not red. Violets are not blue. In fact, colors of pink, purple, or orange in your glass will smile back at you.

If you, or your significant other enjoy sweeter Rosés (the 1970’s U.S. surge of “blush wines”), or you like the drier versions (more European), we have a great list below.

To quote William Shakespeare, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
