La vie en rose

When we think about wine, red wine and white wine are the ones that come into our mind. But there are so much more than these. Rosé wine and Claret wine, sparkling wines, sweet wines… A wide range of possibilities that are not usually treated as red and white wine. That’s why we show you some Rosé wines that you should try. Plus, if you serve it really cold, you will have the perfect drink for these summer days.

Do you know the difference between Rosé wine and Claret wine? Here you have a summary: The first one is made by eliminating the husks (the peel of the grape) and let the wine fermenting for a couple of days – less days than red wine. On the other hand, Claret wine is made by mixing white grapes and red grapes – by mixing the grape juice of both of them. You should know that, before, it was allow mix both wines in order to obtain Rosé, but the European Union has forbidden it.

Keeping that in mind, those are one of the most interesting wines that you should try.
