Summer 2019

Rosé All Day Rosé seems to have shaken off any negative reputation it once had with sales across the country in the last few years soaring thanks, in part at least, to its light and easy drinking nature. Long associated with Provence, where the Mediterranean makes for cool evenings which in turn create a distinct growing climate, Colorado also has very hot days that are mediated by cool evenings thanks to the high altitude. An ideal climate for several grape varieties that are in turn great for making rosés, it is no surprise that there are more rosés than ever before in Colorado. Perfect for hot and dry Colorado summers, now is a great time to get out there and explore what the cadre of capable winemakers in the state have on offer. Here are a few that we have enjoyed recently.
