It’s spring, and that means Rosé season

Our Senior Editor, John Garland, appeared on Appetites with Tom Crann on MPR today, heralding the return of pink wine. Yes, as winter looses its grip and color returns to the trees, that means rosés of all kinds will be appearing on happy hour menus and wine store display tables across the Metro.

How can you get in on the fun? Well, you could buy a ticket to Solo Vino’s Rosé Tent Tasting. There’s no better opportunity to drink all the best rosé in St. Paul at one time. Plus, you’ll be able to compare and contrast rosé from France, Spain, California, and all over, to figure out which you prefer.

Do we have any rosé recommendations for you? Why of course. Here are some of our favorites:

Liquid Geography Rosé
Easy-drinking, each vintage seems better than the next. Zesty, ripe and lively.

La Vieille Ferme Rosé
It’s cheap, it’s a crowdpleaser, it’s a no-brainer.

Le Charmel Cotes de Provence Rosé
This is exactly what Southern French rose should taste like.

Gamling and McDuck “Feral Rosé”
Juicy, fruity, bombastic, so much fun.

Chateau L’Ermitage Rosé
A Grenache-syrah blend from the Southern Rhone in France. Always balanced. A great value.
