Sometime in the last few years, “pink” wine went from being stereotyped as overly sweet white zinfandel to a more trendy range of rosé wines. Now we're seeing the popularity of everything from Pinot Noir Rosé to rosé slushies.
Rosé wine is made with some of the color of the crushed grape skins but not enough to make it red. Almost any type of grape can be used, which means that rosé wines can vary greatly in sweetness levels. Almost all are served chilled like a white wine, and they can be paired with a huge variety of foods depending on how dry they are.
It's not surprising that the first rosé wine of the month clubs are starting to pop up. Although there aren't many, here are the ones that we have found so far.
Wine of the Month Club Rose Series
Wine of the Month Club has been in business since 1972, so they know a thing or two about how to do wine clubs right. Their new Rose Series features two bottles a month for $39.99 plus shipping. Shipments will come every other month. It's great timing because it gives you one new rosé every month that you can alternate with your other varietals. You can cancel at any time. Their customer service is really terrific.
You can order this club for yourself or send it as a gift membership. Gift memberships are for 3, 4, or 6 shipments. They'll also receive a free Wine Explorer's Kit in their first shipment.
Although we haven't tried the wines yet in this particular club, you can read our reviews of other Wine of the Month Club offerings. You'll see pictures, video, and commentary about the company and their wines.
Winc Rosé Wines
Although it isn't billed as rose of the month club, you can actually create your own Winc Rosé Club pretty easily. When you sign up for a membership with them, you will be able to customize the types of wines that you like for each delivery. You can even choose the specific bottles you would like in your shipment. Right now they have 8 rosé options including:
- 2016 Love Me Not Rosé
- 2016 Capuchon Rosé
- 2016 #TBT Rosé
- 2016 Summer Water Rosé (very popular!)
- 2016 Ruza Zinfandel Rosé
The Winc site will tell you how to serve each wine and what it pairs well with. Wines on their site change from month to month. I'm actually a Winc club member myself and plan on adding a couple of rosé wines to my shipment for next month. You can skip months of shipments and also cancel at any time.
Shipments start at $39 for 3 bottles, plus shipping. However, if you use this special link, you will save on your first purchase. That gives you $20 off 4 bottles!
I'll be keeping an eye on all of the clubs that we review regularly to see who adds other rosé clubs and will update this post. If you like sweeter rosé wines, you may also want to check out our Sweet Wine of the Month Club reviews.
