Most rosé wine has a range of alcohol content from 11%-13.5% ranking it among other wines of medium ABV like Bordeaux and Riesling, though many Americans would consider rosé to be more on the lighter side. What is sometimes considered a refreshing and almost juice-like wine can actually pack a punch after a couple glasses. Within the ranges of alcohol content there are also many varieties of rosé style wine in countless shades of pink. In fact some rosé sports such a deep and saturated color that it can often be mistaken for a red wine.
Rosé wine production methods have been in place for thousands of years, as the production itself has been constant since before the time of the Holy Roman Empire. Provence, South France marks the birthplace of rosé and remains the highest producer of rosé in the world, but for the highest consumption you’ll have to fly across the ocean to the big apple.
