TIP OF THE DAY: The Other Valentine “Roses”

Actually, we mean “rosés,” as in rosé Champagne.

Many people like to crack open a bottle of bubbly for V-Day. We think the most appropriate bubbly for this special celebration is a rose-hued sparkling wine.

In France, rosé Champagne is made from blending red and white wines. They tend to be more expensive and more full-bodied than their white counterparts.

Don’t confuse rosé Champagne or other rosé sparklers with “pink Champagne,” an inexpensive sparkling wine that is colored pink, rather than allowing a natural color extraction from the grape skins.

You don’t need deep pockets to enjoy a flute of rose-hued bubbly. One of our favorites is [yellowtail] Bubbly Rosé, an inexpensive sparkler (around $10) from Australia.

  • Maine’s Cellar Door Winery produces Amorosa, Perfect Stranger, Prince Valiant, Serendipity, Sweetheart and Treasure. How’s that for a Valentine’s Day tasting (or for a wedding, an engagement party or anniversary party)?
