Memorial Day is the perfect holiday to celebrate all of the men and women who served our county. We salute you!
Rose’ is the perfect wine to kick off the festivities for this upcoming Memorial Day weekend! Do you know Rose’? Rose’ it’s definitely a celebration wine. It’s fun, colorful and it makes you wanna Rose’ All Day!
Rose’ wines are made by juicing red grapes and then allowing the juice to soak with the skin for a short amount of time. When the juice starts to develop the beautiful pink color, the skins are removed and the juice is allowed to ferment and that’s when Rose’ is created!
