September 5, 2013 Summer Sipping Part 3 – Rosé Rocks!

BY Crushed

Yes – we can still say ‘Summer Sipping” as summer technically is still in effect!

We were reminded of this fact when we said ‘last days of summer’ last week and a Crushed Wine app fan kindly corrected us – thank you!

So, as we head into our favorite month here in Northern California – our best weather months of September and October, we toast to the perfect wine for these days – rosé.

We have compiled our list of favorite rose wines that you can find locally at Whole Foods and local wine stores under $16.
