WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR

There is a perception that Rose wine is sweet and sickly, but that is absolutely not the case.  Rose on the whole is light and fresh and is perfect for the spring and summer.   The best approach is to try various different roses and take note of what grape varieties are in the blends that you like.
