Looking for the best Rosé wine around? Well look no further.
We reviewed 6 incredible wines, plus a bonus Spiked Seltzer. These Rosé wine brands make the perfect summer pairing or even a festive holiday beverage. As you know at Badassery Magazine, we are lovers of wine and Rosé happens to be one of our favorites. We even created a Rosé is for closers tee shirt. We have this running joke that you can only drink when you close. Which in our world could include just closing the mailbox or hitting that x button on the slack channel when it’s dark outside. We each make our version of closing. You decide!

I have to admit, this was my first “wine from a can” experience — though I did pour it into a glass to drink. Underwood Rosé was quite enjoyable. It’s very light bodied and subtle in flavor with medium sweetness. With hints of peach, melon and strawberry, I’d recommend pairing it with brie with pear slices and candied walnuts. It’s very drinkable and refreshing, perfect for day drinking on a girls weekend.
Made from a blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, Sofia Brut Rosé is delightful, slightly dry, sparkling experience in a cute little can. It even comes with a tiny bendy straw — because we like to keep it classy. I have to admit, this has been my favorite of the sparkling rosés I’ve tried. It’s light, not too sweet, and very refreshing. It is DEFINITELY going to be my go-to celebratory beverage after closing a big deal. Plus, it kind of made me feel like a princess in disguise.
Another confession — I totally bought this one because of the ultra-cute tiny champagne bottle it came in. Obviously, I bought the mini bottle. Just like any moscato, Mia Moscato Pink was very sweet and tasted like chilled, yet melted, honey with a hint of peach and cantaloupe. If you like sweet wine, you would love this. That being said, if you don’t like sweet wines, this one won’t be for you.
If you are looking for a crisp, light, and refreshing rosé that’s not too sweet, you need to grab a bottle of California Rosé by Cupcake Vineyards. Still very drinkable, Cupcake’s rosé is a little more tartness than Underwood. It would be the perfect party-by-the-pool rosé or even perfect for a night-at-home-curling-up-with-a-good-book rosé. We highly recommend checking out their website for more fun.

While the thought of a great boxes wine, might at first seem like it’s not up your alley, think again. House Wine Rosé has by far been my favorite Rosé to date. Trust me, I’ve tried a lot of wine to say this. It’s incredible. It was fruity, citrusy and strawberry. In fact, I’m sipping some as I finish this blog post. The box makes it incredibly travel friendly and shareable. Don’t turn your nose up at a box wine, some of the best and most crisp wines are under there. Oh and PS..this now comes in a can!
The name says it all. It’s perfect for summer and is dry, light and looks magical in a gold tinted glass. If the color doesn’t do it for you, the refreshing taste will. I really enjoyed how smooth it was and loved the notes of peach that sparkled through my taste buds. While I found it at my state controlled liquor store, Winc delivers straight to your door. Including a fun, yes way rosé membership. Couldn’t spell perfection better if I tried.
Not a rosé but still pretty amazing-
If you are not a Rosé fan, but you still want something crisp and amazing, we recommend Spiked Seltzer in Indian River Grapefruit. It’s light and happens to only have 5 grams of carbs. It comes in a can and you can tell that Spiked Seltzer puts a lot of love into their beverage. They make their bubbly with purified water and only use natural ingredients. It is not sweet, just crisp and lite. Leaves you feeling toasty without the weight of a beer sitting in your stomach. If you like La Croix sparkling water, you will go nuts for Spiked Seltzer. Like tell all your friends and your mailman nuts.
