If you’re a fan of wine, you’re sure to know that a Red Wine is one that takes a great deal of its color from the grapes, whereas a white wine contains only elements from the juice of the grape itself. But what is this mysterious rosé wine we often hear about? Rosé Wine Day is your chance to learn the difference and just how fantastic the result is. Want it? Rosé wine is the wine that contains only some of the color of the grape skins but lacks the rich and robust color of red wine.
