Rosé wines, also known as blush wine, is a wine that is somewhere in color between a white wine and red wine. While they can vary in color from pink wine, to salmon, to light red, rose wine doesn't quite fall into either the white or red spectrum.

In general, rosé wines are meant to be fresh, refreshing and tasty wines that are not too serious. By that we mean that while most blush wine is not as deep or complex as the best white or red wines, they are all about simple pleasure and definitely deserve a place in your wine drinking repertoire.
