National Rosé Day

Glasses of RoseJune 11 is National Rosé Day. But also keep in mind that summer is around the corner and therefore, there’s always an occasion to “rosé all day”! Certainly, it’s time to drink pink on the patio, oceanside or poolside. We sip it on our deck lakeside on warm evenings, and watch its pretty color match the gorgeous Washington sunsets. However, we haven’t finalized all our bottles to open on National Rosé Day this year. Read on for the list of possibilities.

National Rosé Day

We still have more than a week until National Rosé Day on June 11. We know we’ll open Lauren Ashton Cellars rosé, as we do every year. However, we’re still not sure which other rosés to pour. Here are 17 bottles we have in our cellar (in alphabetical order). Six are from Washington state, three from California, three from France, two from Oregon and one each from Italy, Spain and Armenia.

Decisions, decisions!

We also have to decide on food pairings, which is fairly easy. For example, you can pair food-friendly rosé with seafood, shellfish and smoked salmon. Or, for instance, try salads, pasta, grilled chicken, grilled lamb, Asian dishes or red-berry desserts. Moreover, you can simply drink rosé without food, as a refreshing summer sipper.


In conclusion, we love many different styles of rosés. Consequently, we love National Rosé Day, and hope you do too. On the other hand, we also hope you enjoy this refreshing summer sipper all year round.

Most importantly, come back to see what we decide on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. And certainly, here, at Write for Wine – It’s Wine O’Clock Somewhere.
