Rosé is a type of wine made from red wine grapes, produced in a similar manner to red wine, but with reduced time fermenting with grape skins. The colour comes from the pigmentation of the skin of the grapes. The longer the maceration period (soaking) the darker the pink colour. This pink colour has become known to go to summer drinks. The process involves red grapes that are juiced and left to soak (macerate) with their skins for a day or two until the juice turns a subtle pink color. The grape skins are then removed and the juice continues to ferment. Blush wine is different to Rose wine and involves a mixture of Red and White grapes.
The most famous region of Rose is Côtes de Provence. Rosé made in Provence is typically made from Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvedre, and Syrah grapes.
Rosé wine production is not only made in Provence and can be made all over the world, countries include Italy, Spain. French, Spanish, and Italian rosés, along with other wines made in Europe, are called Old World, while rosé made in California, Australia, Argentina, or anywhere outside of Europe are called New World.
