villa wolf pinot noir rose wine
Villa Wolf

Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Rosé, Germany

This is one of Klein’s all-time favorite summer rosés. Mostly dry with a tiny hint of sugar and fruit with each finish, this bottle is stylistically different from your typical Provence rosé. The grape here is Pinot Noir, done in a fresh manner that makes you want another glass…or, you know, the rest of the bottle.

Vini Franchetti

Passorosso Rosso, Nerello Mascalese, Etna Rosso, Sicily

This fab red blend is ideal for pasta, pizza and patio dining (aka the ultimate trifecta). The dark-skinned grape, grown in Sicilian vineyards near the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna, reflects its surroundings: fruity, fresh and slightly earthy.

Peter Stolpman “Love you Bunches” Sangiovese, Santa Barbara, CA

By all definitions, this bottle is a red. But Stein notes that it can easily fit into the rosé and rosado categories too. Peter Stolpman, the wine’s namesake, recommends serving the wine slightly chilled, highlighting its lush notes of pomegranate, strawberry and cherry.

Jose Pastor Selections

Bichi “No Sapiens” Tecate, Mexico

Made with an unidentified grape (some think it may be Dolcetto, others argue Carignan), this wine offers a dark, substantial fruit character while still being light enough to enjoy on a hot summer day (preferably by the water with a slight breeze). Is it time for happy hour yet?
