Cool down with delicious Northwest rosés
In the next week, temperatures will be rising dramatically across the Pacific Northwest as summer descends upon us.
In Portland and Seattle, weather experts are forecasting temperatures well into the 90s. Meanwhile in Washington wine country, the mercury will easily hit triple digits and could reach as high as 113 (!).
For us, this kind of extreme heat calls for dropping several bottles of dry rosés into the refrigerator because nothing is more refreshing than a crisp, bright pink wine.
Fortunately, the Pacific Northwest has become a hotbed for world-class dry rosés. Pinot Noir rosés from Oregon are stunning, and Washington rosés made from everything from Sangiovese to Malbec are simply remarkable.
In the following pages, we’ve highlighted a dozen delicious Northwest rosés we’ve tasted in recent weeks.
