National Rosé Day—celebrated this Sunday, June 10—might not be as popular as, say, the 4th of July or Thanksgiving. But the day is owed its due; after all, Rosé is thought to be among the very oldest wines in history, dating back to the 5th century BC. And wine itself is commonly believed to have way more health benefits than that daily apple which purports to keep the doctor away.
So in celebration of this young holiday (which was started just in 2015), we rounded up a bevy of luxurious varietals ideal for your next overseas escapade or intimate garden party. From Veuve Clicquot we have La Grande Dame Brut Rosé with its aromatic blend of strawberries and fruit dominating the nose, as well as a rather delicate but vibrant wine from La Sirena blended with the Italian grape—Primitivo. Whether you are toasting to a new beginning or jubilating with friends, these elegant wines are sure to elevate the mood.
