10 Best Ros Wines Under $30, According to a Sommelier –

Posted: July 5, 2020 at 1:48 am

Even though we're in the middle of a pandemic, it's still summer. And if you want to enjoy a glass of wine in the backyard, ross can be a healthier option. Because they're made from red grapes, ross contain the same polyphenols present in reds, and when sipped in moderation these antioxidants may help reduce inflammation and protect against heart disease. If you're watching your calorie intake, pink wines also often contain fewer calories than reds. Be sure to pick up a dry style (no to very little residual sugar), so you're not loading up on extra sugar. And when shopping for wine, organic and biodynamic picks should be your first stop. Chemical treatments like pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides can linger in your wine even after fermentation. And so without further ado, here are our favorite ross to buy this summer:

12018 Cantine Argiolas Serra Lori Rosato


This beautifully-hued ros hails from the Italian island of Sardinia. Made from several local grapes varieties, Serra Lori spends between 3-4 hours macerating on the grape skins, imparting both the gorgeous color and those beneficial antioxidants. Full of lively berry flavors and crisp finish, it's perfect for kicking off the summer season.

22018 Grgich Hills Estate Ros


Napa Valley may be famous for its iconic reds, but you'll find outstanding pink wines here too. Grgich Hills Estate's version is based on Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Merlot, Zinfandel, and Cabernet Franc to round it out. These grapes are all chock-full of polyphenols. A little creamy on the palate, this ros boasts notes of juicy watermelon, ripe peach, and wild strawberry with a delicate note of cherry blossoms. Ideal for balmy summer evenings.

32018 Biokult Zweigelt Ros


Made from biodynamically-farmed grapes, this light ros is made for picnics. Pinot fans will love the Austrian Zweigelt grape. Biokult's version has heady notes of strawberry, cranberry, and floral notes with a citrusy twist and dry mineral-driven finish. Heads up to folks on a plant-based dietBiokult is also vegan.

42019 La Fte du Ros


A classic Provence ros featuring Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah, La Fte du Ros is a heady mix of fresh berries, clementines, cantaloupe, light spice, and a slight nuttiness. Impeccably balanced, utterly refreshing, it's perfect if you prefer lighter styles.

52018 Mas de Daumas Gassac Ros Frizant


Crafted from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvdre, Pinot Noir, plus a few white varieties, this stunning bubbly is one of my all-time favorites. Thicker skinned grapes like Cab boast higher levels of beneficial polyphenols. The best part? Daumas Gassac's ros is dry, so you can still get your fizz fix without the added sugar.

62019 Sokol Blosser Ros of Pinot Noir


Despite being a thin-skinned grape, Pinot Noir tops the list for resveratrol levels, especially when grown in cooler regions like Oregon's Dundee Hills AVA. Fresh aromas of nectarine, blood orange, and crushed berries mingle with savory herbs, ros petals, and just a hint of spice.

7 2018 Chateau de Trinquevedel Tavel Ros


From its color to its complexity, Chateau de Trinquevedel's rich pink ros is a real showstopper. Based on Grenache and completed by an assembly of grapes common across the South of France, this is a bold ros that even the most dedicated red wine drinker will love. Vibrant and simmering with raspberry, cherry, red flowers, and a mineral-heavy finish, this is not one to miss.

82019 Succs Vinicola Patxanga Rosado


Made in Spain's Conca de Barbera region exclusively from the local Trepat grape, Patxanga is unfined and with no added sulfites. This ros features delicate floral notes layered over ripe red berries cherries, cranberries, raspberries. It's fresh. It's bright. It's so summery.

92018 Maanita Touriga Nacional Em Ros


Touriga Nacional is often the cornerstone in red Port blends. It's high in tannins and packed with polyphenols. On its own, the wines this Portuguese grape makes are something else. Rich notes of strawberry and crushed tart red cherries lead into pretty tree blossom notes and a hint of pepper. Perfect for a lazy summer's afternoon.

102019 Santa Julia Malbec Ros


Another vegan pick to note. While there's loads of intense red fruit in this wine, there's a touch more dark fruit in this ros in the form of dark cherry flavors with a wonderful finish dominated by sweet baking spices. Bonus? This ros is an absolute steal.
