Yes Way Rosé: National Rosé Day is June 10th

As if I needed another excuse to drink more rosé than I already do, National Rosé Day is this Saturday, June 10th, and it officially marks the start of Rosé season. However, if you’re like me, it’s more of a rosé all day lifestyle. The blush wine is just as consumable, as it is Instagrammable.

Nonetheless, rosé is more than a pretty pour. While we have The Fat Jew to thank for rosé’s reputation of being the number one “basic” beverage, the wine deserves a lot more credit. Sayle Milne, founder of wine-class company Wine Savvy, listed off a number of reasons on why we should be drinking more of the pink stuff last month in Refinery 29. In Sayle’s words, “You should be drinking rosé when you wake up. You should have it at lunch, you should have it at dinner. You should have it with a straw,” and I couldn’t agree more!

Plus, when Vogue calls it the summer’s most popular drink, we listen to them.

Michigan Rosé

Northern Michigan has recently caught on to the pink trend and the summertime staple that is rosé. With patio season in full swing, the sun finally out, and the boats on The Bay, all we want is a nice pour of crisp and refreshing rosé.

With so many rosés on the market, I took it upon myself to find a few of my local favorites and to share it with you. Whether you’re celebrating solo, or sipping the good stuff with a group of friends — I’ve got you covered, because after enough swirling, sipping, and reflecting, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite Northern Michigan Rosé’s. Your welcome!

Just in time for summer…. scroll through for the roundup. Warning: you won’t find any sweet wines on this list!
