Mother`s Day 2017 – The Wine Boys – Dozen Rosés

Mother’s Day is just around the corner (Sunday, May 14), and although most mothers love flowers; The Wine Boys thought more about those Wine Loving Mothers, and decided on assisting you with our Dozen Rosés. Why not uncork something PINK for mom on her special holiday.

Have you ever wondered how they make rosés pink?

  • Rosés are generally made from purple grape varietals. The juice is pressed and the skins are removed. The skins are then reintroduced to the juice as to create the pinkish color. The skins can remain in contact with the pressed juice for a few hours or until a maximum of 3 days. The skins are then filtered out of the juice.
  • The skins will allow the juice to turn from white to a pale peach color, up to a rich dark pink color. Rosé wines can be made into a sparkling wine or still wine. They can also be either sweet or the winemaker has created them to be very dry. Keep in mind that the winemaker is not trying to create another red wine during this practice.

While most people believe that Rosé wines are a blending of a white and red wine, this is untrue. This type of practice making Rosés is discouraged. For the most part, rosé wines are generally released in smaller batches around easter time and are perfect for entertaining on the patio, or firing up the bbq grill. In the past couple years Rosé has become a very popular Summer time wine and you will notice some wineries will sell out very quickly.

We hope you enjoy the Rosé wines we have chosen for Mother’s Day.  We included pricing and also the different types of varietals that were used to create these wines.
