Tickled Pink Summer Rosés

It’s that time of the year to stock your cellars with plenty of bottles for the summertime crowds.  Rosé is always at the top of our list…perfect for drinking around the pool, and great aperitifs for outside summer dinners.  Here are my suggestion for this year’s best Rosés (in alpha order):

La Crema
This one is perpetually on my summer's list. Made from Pinot Noir, this Russian River Rosé is made in small quantities so buy several when you find it.  $20

Produced by Domaine Sainte Lucie in Provence, this one is a block-buster winner.  Very well crafted and great value.  $16-18

Mirabeau PURE
Mirabeau makes several Rosés, but the Pure rendition is the best of all.  Made in a lovely Provence village, this one is readily available at places at BevMo.  $16-18

Whispering Angel

I had my first taste of this wine just a few weeks ago.  My husband drove 50 miles to pick up a case after reading about it winning awards from those in  some wine rag.  From Provence, it’s a great choice.  $18-20
