50 Days of Rosé: Day 36

Aaaand, we’re back! I couldn’t resist this adorable bottle at Whole Foods, so I forked over $12.99 for this rosé of Garnacha from El Terrano: Plus, look at the capsule and cork. So cute and consistently branded: Bottle: 4.5/5 – If Anthropologie was going to have their own rosé label, this is what it would look […]

50 Days of Rosé: Day 34

Despite working with wine for a living, I’m as susceptible to an impulse buy as anyone, and the other day at Giant picking up tissues and hair ties, I snagged a little mini box of Black Box Rosé. Bottle: 3/5 – I know there’s a limit to how cute you can make a tetrapak, but they […]

50 Days of Rosé: Day 33

It’s a momentous day here at Rosé Headquarters, and by Rosé Headquarters, I mean my messy house. I have not used that yoga mat you see peeking out of the corner of this photo in months: I finally tried Chateau d’Esclan’s Whispering Angel, at least in an official context. I’ve had the gummy bears that […]

50 Days of Rosé: Day 32

Sometimes a favorite rosé will just come out of nowhere and give you a big juicy pink surprise bite in the ass. That is what happened with Pot de Vin, a rosé of Syrah I picked up on a whim at my local health food grocery store, Mom’s. I mostly like going there because they […]

50 Days of Rosé: Day 27

Today, I did a little browsing at Trader Joe’s to see what pink wine everyone’s favorite discount snack emporium has to offer. I’ve always liked the La Granja brand’s reds – the Tempranillo and Tempranillo/Garnacha blends are both great values to grab if you’re shopping for frozen mini quiches and cookies you’ll eat too many […]

50 Days of Rosé: Day 21

Cans are the new hotness when it comes to alternative wine packaging, so I placed an order with Bottle Rocket Wine & Spirit, a very cool NYC wine shop, to try out a few. First up is Ramona, which is not technically a rosé, but a spritzer made with pink grapefruit juice and white wine, […]

50 Days of Rosé: Day 20!

Today we have another Austrian wine to love, the Rosanna rosé from Netzl. I’m a little mad at myself, because they gave their packaging a makeover and I think the new look for their bottles is lovely, I just didn’t get the greatest photo of it: Here’s what I thought: Bottle: 4.5/5 – Nice clean […]

50 Days of Rosé: Day 19

You’re probably not drinking enough Beaujolais in general, but you’re probably definitely not drinking enough rosé of Gamay from Beaujolais. I’ve loved the red wines from Chateau Thivin for years, but until now I’d never had their rosé, and I have been missing out! Bottle: 4.5/5 – I love the frosted bottle and the classic […]

50 Days of Rosé: Day 18

I love Austrian wine, and I’ve always had a soft spot for iconic producer Schloss Gobelsburg. In 2014 I spent an idyllic afternoon there, which was only slightly marred by the fact that partway through I realized that the hospitality manager, who was otherwise very nice to me, seemed to think that 9/11 never happened. […]

50 Days of Rosé: Day 14

Looking for something super refreshing for a hot day? Want to really blow someone’s mind who still thinks of rosé as blandly sweet pink swill, like Franzia blush? Try rose Txakolina, a lightly sparkling rosé from Spain’s Basque region. I tried this one from Gañeta and tried to mentally transport myself to a tapas bar […]

50 Days of Rosé: Day 12 (Shake Shake Shake…Shake your Wine?!)

Domestic rosé hasn’t been getting a whole lot of love here, but Margerum’s Riviera Rosé made me pretty happy…after a small adjustment! Bottle: 4.5/5 – Nice clean label design here, attractive screwcap, no weird tinting of the glass that makes the rosé a gross muddy color. Solid effort! Color: 4.5/5 – Very pale, but still […]

So, You Want To Be A Wine Importer

So, you went to Uruguay or southern Italy on vacation, and you found the most amazing small producers that no one is bringing into the US. After some dreamy pillow talk with your significant other you’ve decided you should start a small import company. Congratulations! I hope you have a lot of money to lose. […]
