Rosé has found a home with sommeliers – some of whom would previously have snubbed their noses at it. In the dog days of a Texas summer, there appears to be nothing more refreshing, that speaks of the season better, than such a wine. Perfect for a gathering and easy to pair with a variety of food choices, a rosé can be both fancy or casual. Plus, now those who love rosé can easily find a Texas version of these delicious pink drinks.

This rosé has that signature look that is pretty in pink together with hints of strawberry and melon. The winemaker hails from a winemaking family in California, has a formal education in the industry from a prestigious university, and moved to Lubbock in 1993. Their product has been superb as a result – this rosé included.

A great example of what a summer wine is meant to be in terms of experience, flavor, and taste sensations, the William Chris 2017 Malbec Rosé is an excellent Texas-made option. On the cusp of what is happening with the demand for accessible wines, this is a great selection for a night of barbecue. It pairs so well with the foods that are staples of the Lone Star State.

This Sangiovese rosé coming from Grower Project is a result of the Texas Hill Country’s Rae Wilson (Wine for the People) in collaboration with Andrew Sides (Lost Draw Cellars). It was developed from grapes grown in the Texas High Plains, where nighttime and daytime temperature variations allow for the perfect flavors required for an expert rosé.
