Learn More About Rosé
Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But
one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rosé sparkler comes from the skins –
means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method –
Pinot Noir or Pinot
After pressing the grapes, the juice sustains contact with the skins for a while, and so acquires some color.
After this the wine is processed like other Champagne and sparkling wine. Depending on the length of time with the
a rosé sparkling wine can range from light salmon to deep pink. This style of wine is a perfect bubbly to last through
dinner and stand up to a nice filet.
Learn More About Veneto, Italy
Located in Northeast Italy, near the Austrian border, and one of the three regions making up the Tre-Venezie, Veneto is most famous for its city of love, Venice. In the wine world, Veneto is the top volume producer in the north of Italy. Production includes lovely spritzy Proseccos (also the grape name), as well as the easy-drinking white wine of Soave (made from the white grape, Garganega) and the red wine of Amarone.
The wine of Soave is most common white wine made here. Occasionally you can find an exceptional Soave, but for the most part the wine is easy-drinking and refreshingly pleasant. For the reds, the most popular are Amarone and Valpolicella – both made primarily from the good structured Corvina grape. While Amarone is always made in the recioto method (drying out the grapes to intensify the flavor), Valpolicella has a few different levels. Amarone is made from very ripe grapes, which are then dried and then pressed, producing an opulent, concentrated, full-bodied wine that has a distinctive and powerful taste that stays with you. Not for the lighter fare meal, this wine is almost port-like and delicious with cheese and/or dessert. Valpolicella can also be made in the recioto method, but it's more often
found in a dry style – the wine goes up in rank, from Valpolicella to Valpolicella Classico to Valpolicella Classico Superiore. And finally, the bubbly of Veneto – Prosecco. Made from the same-named grape, Prosecco is less fizzy than Champagne and occasionally has a slight sweetness. It's absolutely delicious as a value aperitif.

Great sparkler at a great price. Highly recommend, especially if you're a Champagne Rose fan.
Pierre D Faucher (9/7/2013)
Light, fruity, with a hint of sweetness, and not too dry.
Soft, dry sparkling rosé with smoky aromas and flavors of strawberry , almonds, walnuts, and white cranberry. Medium bodied with assertive carbonation and a clean creamy finish. So juicy and refreshing, this would be an excellent choice for brunch or lunch al fresco.
This was light and crisp but really didn't have much of a taste. Good for the price.
