Why are there so few Rosés on restaurant wine lists?

Rosé wines suffer from a bad reputation that stems from the idea that only red wine can be good. Nothing could be further from the truth. What must be clear is that if we want a decent rosé wine, like all wines, it will be priced accordingly.

The rosé is very sensitive to the quality of the grapes, which should be at the right point of ripening and aromatically expressive, and it is very delicate to make. Therefore it is illogical to expect it to be cheaper than a good young red or white wine. Given this, there is a new generation Penedès rosé wines, with more or less intensity of color: aromatically complex wines that are great.

As for food matches, there are dishes that are almost crying out for a rosé: rices, pasta, and others that combine perfectly like white meat, grilled vegetables or poultry.

They can also be a good choice at a meal that features varied dishes. It’s time to lose the preconceptions!
