24 Summer Rosés

1 of 4

At their worst, rosés offer little beyond flabby, fruity and sweetly concocted flavors. It’s an association perpetuated by mass-produced bottles and decades of white Zinfandel and blush wines that, while popular, were not particularly appealing to discerning wine lovers.

But at their best, dry still rosés—which come in an almost unimaginable range of pinkish hues—establish a festive tone, refresh parched palates and are ideal accompaniments to summer fare.

Good, balanced rosé is being made all over the world. While styles vary from round and robust to fresh and laser-focused, the category speaks to the clean flavors of summer cuisine and relaxed outdoor living.

The best rosés, like many of our editors’ favorites featured here, transcend this level of delicious drinkability. These provide what great wines of any style can offer—a window onto the place from which they come.
