We aren t talking about your grandmother s rose here. The rose being quaffed today is not the syrupy sweet and cheap White Zinfandel that helped give all pink wine a bad name. The rose winning the hearts and palates of Americans now is dry with lively fruit and is fast becoming an anytime wine, not just a swimming pool, summertime drink. Or put it this way, rose can bring a bit of summer to a cold December day. Larry and Ann Walker interview winemakers, chefs, and fans of pink wine from key wine regions where the best rose is made from California to France to Spain and beyond offering consumers the only global guide to rose in print. A food pairing guide is also shared with a couple dozen pink-complimentary recipes.
