It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Time for overflowing glasses of champagne, beers on tap, bottles upon bottles of wine, and endless cocktails. Yes, it’s the holiday season and festivities are in full force! But each year it seems that one very important beverage is left out of the fun: rosé, that is.
We’ve all learned to serve wine at the proper temperature. Rosé, I’ve found, is the only wine that tastes best when it’s 75 degrees or hotter. I’m not talking about the temperature of the liquid in the glass. I’m referring to the temperature outside. Rosé should be chilled, of course, but it’s a wine for drinking outdoors, on a sizzling hot day. It’s the most seasonal of all wines, the seasons being late Spring through early Fall.
