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 Wine – Bending 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.
