Rosé has gone from summer crush to eternal flame in the United States, with excellent bottles from global wine regions increasingly available year-round. Some of VinePair’s favorite rosé sparkling wines hail from Alsace, Italy, Argentina, and, of course, Champagne.
Whether you are celebrating something special, or simply living your best life with a bottle of bubbles, here are 15 of the best rosé sparkling wines available now.
From Argentina’s Uco Valley comes this satisfying sparkler made from organically farmed, hand-harvested grapes. It has fruity aromas and flavors followed by a crisp, salty finish, and it offers incredible value for money (“I had to look at the price twice,” VinePair’s tastings director Keith Beavers said). Average price: $10.
Italy’s Nerello Mascalese grape stars in this easy-drinking bottle with smooth, sweet fruit flavors. It isn’t the most complex wine you’ll ever taste, but it is fun and spritzy and perfect for low-key nights around the grill — or on the couch. Average price: $13.
Feel the Dolomites wind in your hair as you sip this Trentodoc that gets its lean, angular structure from the mountains where its grapes grow. Watermelon and citrus scents give way to ripe peach and white pepper on the palate. Average price: $19.
