Montinore Estate Vivacé Prosecco Rosé 2022

Montinore Estate is one of the largest biodynamic producers in the U.S., but for its bubbly, it draws from its Italian roots, partnering with a winery in Italy’s Veneto region to make this certified organic Prosecco.

Kobal Bajta Rosé 2023

Slovenia is popping off with pét-nats. There are so many playful bottles coming out of this country, and this sparkling Blaufränkisch from Kobal in the Haloze Hills is one of our absolute favorites.

Outward Wines Bassi Vineyard Pét-Nat of Pinot Gris 2023

OK, this isn’t technically a sparkling rosé, but it plays the role convincingly. This is a skin-contact Pinot Gris — so it’s really closer to an orange wine than a rosé — but in color, aroma, and flavor profile, it definitely comes across as a rosé. And it was too delicious not to mention on this list. The grapes come from the coveted Bassi Vineyard in California’s waterfront San Luis Obispo Coast AVA, giving the wine great freshness. It’s effusive on the nose, with bright aromas of white flowers, apricots, and a slight brioche character. The palate is subtle, with soft yet concentrated notes of peaches, grapefruit pith, and white cherries.

The wine has a creamy texture on the palate with notes of yogurt, berries, peaches, and green herbs. Plus the label sets the perfect backdrop for idyllic summer days.

Las Jaras Wines Sparkling 2020

What Is Sparkling Rosé?

Sparkling rosé is a sparkling wine that is either made entirely with red wine grapes or a blend of red and white wine grapes.

Is Sparkling Rosé Sweet?

Sparkling rosé can range from bone dry to extremely sweet, depending on how it is made.

Is Pink Champagne the Same as Sparkling Rosé?

Though all pink Champagne is considered sparkling rosé, not all sparkling rosé is pink Champagne. While the general category of sparkling rosé encompasses wines made all around the world from all types of grapes, rosé Champagne is made only in the Champagne region of France, from Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay grapes.
