Our Wine Broad


Spring has sprung, so time to THINK PINK. With the Cherry Blossom Festival starting this weekend, there is no better time to enjoy a crisp and fruity rose wine.

Rose wines are made from red grapes and some of the best examples hail from the South of France (Provence) and Spain. These are not your Mom’s White Zinfandels from the 1980s, but truly fine wines capable of pairing with a wide variety of foods.

Ca’ Bona Pinot Grigio Rosé 2007,
Lombardy, Italy
A pink Pinot Grigio?? Yup—because Pinot Grigio grapes have pink skins. Mouthwatering and ripe, peach, mango and watermelon flavors, fresh and crisp.

Aljibes Syrah Rosé 2007, Tierra de Castilla, Spain
Sure it’s pink, but it packs a punch—ripe red plum and raspberry notes, hint of spice, crisp and refreshing.

Ingleside Rosato di Sangiovese 2007,
Northern Neck, Virginia
A rich and luscious rosé from Italy’s Chianti grape—ripe black cherry and bright strawberry and cranberry notes, clean and refreshing finish.

Chrysalis Vineyards ‘Sarah’s Patio Red’ 2007,
Loudoun County, Virginia
Drinks like a rose, yet looks like a light bodied red wine. Made from 100% Norton grapes—The REAL American grape—native to Virginia. Aromas of blueberry, blackberry, fresh grapes. Crisp and refreshing. Slightly sweet.
