Rosé in Italian Culture
Rosé is commonly referred to in Italy as rosa wine, and has been consumed for centuries throughout numerous regions. In recent years, rosa wine gained traction in popular culture and there’s even an organization called the Rosautoctono Italian Wine Institute established to highlight the finest Italian rosa wines! Rosé or rosa wine is typically served cold, in seasonal summer months, and comes in a variety of refreshing floral and grape notes.
Sparkling Rosé: Prosecco, Cava, & More
If you’ve never tried sparkling rosé, you’ll need to come to our wine tasting and see what it’s all about! As a refreshingly pink and light rosé wine, it has a crisp taste to it that is palate-pleasing, particularly in summertime. Sparkling rosé comes in a wide variety of fresh blends from all over the world, including Spain, France, Germany, Italy, and America. From Cava to Prosecco, whether you’re into sweet wine or dry, you’re bound to find the perfect sparkling rosé variety that your family will love.
