This year ditch the flowers, chocolate and cuddly stuffed animals for something they really want – wine!

Whether you’re trying to impress your loved one or just celebrating awesome friends, a lovely bouquet of delicious pink Rosé will definitely get you all the love.

Rosé has come a long way in recent years and are a far cry from the sweet, white-zin style wines of the past.

Lucky for us, Paso Robles has some excellent options that are sure to amaze! Here are some of our favorites:

  • Chronic Cellars – 2017 Pink Pedals $14.99/bottle. Given 90 points and a ‘Best Buy’ category by Wine Enthusiast, this Grenache and Syrah-based Rosé is a bright, crisp, refreshing wine that rolls down a road of watermelon, pomegranate, cantaloupe and cherry Jolly Rancher right to your happy place.

 

  • Culton Wine – 2017 Rosé of Pinot Noir $25/bottle. Terry Culton is a master of all things Pinot Noir, and this bone dry Rosé is bright and refreshing – a true treat.
