What is rose wine?

It is one that has a certain hue of red wine, but only what is necessary to give it a pink color, which goes from light to strong, achieving an almost violet tone, depending on the grapes and the technique used.

Rose wine can be produced through 3 techniques: contact with the skins, through bleeding or through a mixture of red wine and white wine. The method preferred by winegrowers is bleeding, which consists of obtaining a by-product of the fermentation of red wine.

Some rosé wines are darker and others very pale, but this has nothing to do with their taste: the level of sweetness depends more on the amount of extraction obtained from the grape skins.
