Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely heard the phrase “rosé all day.” Perhaps you’ve even written out the hashtag yourself while making a post from a restaurant patio or your own back porch. Maybe you’ve even read the countless articles and followed the meteoric rise of summer’s perennial pink drink. IWSR data shows that rosé growth outpaced the total still wine market in the U.S. by almost 18 percent from 2015-19, and the category may grow as much as 70 percent from 2020 to 2024.

And if you know all of this about the growth of rosé, then you likely know that France is still the major player when it comes to the bottles of pink. Chateau d'Esclans Cotes de Provence Whispering Angel Rose is the top-selling rose on Provi’s own marketplace. But while we know and love the passion the French have for crafting some of the greatest rosés on the market, there are other regions trying their hand at the famous pink-hued summertime libation and succeeding in their own right. From the U.S. to Chile to Germany, let’s take a look at nine of the top rosés you can find produced outside of France.

1. 14 Hands Rosé (Washington)

14hands

Located in Prosser, Washington, the 14 Hands winery takes its inspiration 

from the wild horses (standing 14 “hands” tall) that would roam the untamed western countryside. Crafted from the hardy vines that built a number of fruitful, flavorful varieties, their rosé is a blend of strawberry and watermelon flavors with a sweet citrus kick to top it off.

2. La Marca Prosecco Rosé D.O.C. (Italy)


LamarcaFrom the Veneto region of Italy, La Marca Prosecco Rosé injects some pink jubilation into the oft-enjoyed Prosecco. Playing up the traditional crisp and floral notes of regular Prosecco, this rosé-infused variety brings out notes of citrus, honeysuckle, peach and pear, blending with flavors of cherry, raspberry and strawberry.

3. Domaine Chandon Brut Rosé (California)


ChandonDomaine Chandon claims their wine is “born French, raised in California.” So while it’s technically inspired by the rosé kingmakers of France, this rosé takes after its California region with aromas of fresh strawberry, watermelon and cherry. With a double gold medal in 2022 from the SF Chronicle Wine Competition and 93 points in the 2021 Sommelier’s Choice Award, this rosé has the distinction of being one of their winemaker’s favorite wines to make.

4. Dark Horse Rosé (California)

DarkHOrseA dark horse is typically referred to as an unknown contender, but when it comes to this Dark Horse, there’s no denying their prowess! Their rosé is a grenache varietal with vibrant notes of bright Californian fruit, helping it stand strong with aromas of wild strawberry and watermelon  that invade the air and carry through to the palate with crisp berries and a peach finish.

5. Scarpetta Frico Rosato Toscana IGT (Italy)


FricoAnother Italian variety, this one coming from the Tuscany region, Scarpetta provides a light-bodied rosé made from the indigenous varietals Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Ciliegiolo. This trifecta blend creates a taste that is both highly acidic and crisp, with a nice tart cherry flavor to finish it off.

6. Montes Cherub Rosé (Chile)


MontesMade in the Valle de Colchagua in Chile, this rosé began its life after years of experimentation from Aurelio Montes who wanted to produce a rosé with syrah (shiraz) grapes. With a deep cherry color, this dry wine sprouts aromas of raspberries, strawberries and pomegranate, culminating in a medium bodied wine with refreshing acidity.

7. Wolffer Estate Summer in a Bottle Rosé (New York)


WolfferEstateSummerinaBottleRoseNot to be confused with their recent release, “Summer in a Bottle - Côtes de Provence,” the original Summer in a Bottle embodies everything about its Long Island heritage. With its shiny copper color tempting drinkers, this rosé creates a fine balance between fresh fruit, tannins and acidity. The fruity smell of ripe pears and apples fills the air before the taste of the creamy and delicate finish comes through from this perfect summer wine.

8. Underwood Rosé (Oregon)


underwood rose(2)Not every wine needs to be bottled to be a contender. While the Union Wine Company themselves claim “it’s hard to keep your pinky up when you’re drinking wine from a 375 ml can,” this wine stands out as an approachable and drinkable choice for all types of rosé fans. With Underwood Rosé, Union has crafted a vegan, canned wine with delicious tasting notes of golden raspberry, kiwi and rose blossom. “Crack open a rosé” isn’t a phrase you hear often, but with this one it fits well.

9. Schlossgut Diel Rose de Diel (Germany)


Schlossgut Diel Rose de DielIf you’re looking to build a fine portfolio of wines from around the globe, Diel winery’s Rosé de Diel is a choice ripe for the picking. They’ve brought forward a delectable pinot noir variety (or spätburgunder to those in native Germany) from the Nahe region that gives off a ripe, refreshing taste that is crisp and finishes dry.
