For some, rosé wines signal summertime, but in Texas, it’s rosé all day, all year. Texas’ year-round temperate climate calls for bright, refreshing, fruit-forward wines to sip while sitting by the pool or watching the sun go down.

The five wineries of Texas Fine WineBending Branch Winery, Brennan Vineyards, Duchman Family Winery, Pedernales Cellars and Spicewood Vineyards – offer a terrific selection of rosé wines just in time for pools, parties and picnics.
