A rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify is as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method.
The pink color can range from pale “onion-skin” orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the varietals used and winemaking techniques.
Rosés account for vast majority of Provence´s wine production. The rosés of Provence are often known for their food and wine pairing matches with the local Mediterranean cuisine.
