Rose Wine is a kind of wine variety made by juicing the grape. While it includes grape skins, the quantity is low as compared to red wine. The colour is variable and may range from onion-skin orange to nearly purple.

But again, shades vary as per the preparation and grape type. Besides being an old variety, Rose wine is often prepared with a skin contact method. It also has distinct names like Rosé, Rosado, and Rosato.

Presently, Rose wine is quite recognised as a US summer drink. It is also popular in countries like France, UK and Spain. Keep note that the Rose colour of the wine comes from the skin and not the juices.

While the preparation is somewhat similar to red wine, the skins do not contact the drink much. That's where the colour comes from. Pinot noir, Grenache, Sangiovese, Syrian, etc., are some of the common grapes that help produce Rose wine.

How Is Rose Wine Made?

As mentioned earlier, the grape skin is not much in contact with the juice during the Rose wine preparation. That's why the colour remains Rose pink. The amalgamation of grape skin with its juices is called maceration.

The maceration process for rose wine occurs for about a few hours a day. Skins are removed as soon as it gets the colour, and the juice is fermented. The colour of Rose wine varies as per the intensity of the maceration process.

There are myths that Rose wine gets its colour by combining red and white wine. However, now you know that it's not true! Although, you may get a type of Rose wine with both their blends.
