Drink Pink

A rosé (and cider) at every price point.

$4, Wölffer No. 139 Dry Rosé Cider

Okay, maybe this is cheating (it’s actually cider with grape-skin extract added by its Long Island producers), but it’s still pink—and the reward is great: a semisweet, easy-to-imbibe sparkler in a fun, attractive single-serving bottle.

$10, Mulderbosch Rosé 2014

Guests will enjoy sipping on this slightly acidic rosé with a berry-heavy flavor before dinner or with seafood. Made entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon rosé grapes grown in Stellenbosch, a coastal South African region.

$16, The Red Hook Winery Finger Lakes Rosé 2013

Local-minded drinkers will like this rosé: Made with Finger Lakes grapes, the wine is dry, without any residual sugar. Plus: Red Hook offers a large-order discount and works frequently with New York venues, so the team is used to handling venue peculiarities.

$21, Conti di Buscareto Rosé Brut

Please wine-geek guests with this bubbly offering from an Italian vineyard that focuses on Lacrima, a rarely seen grape.The casual sipper will still appreciate it for the light, floral drinkability.

$85, Château Simone Palette Rosé 2013

This rosé is worthy of its special-occasion price; wines from this region in Provence are rare (Château Simone is essentially the only producer), and this complex bottle is blended from a number of atypical grapes.
