With the romance of summer and its festivities comes the perfect wine pairing for any occasion: a glamorous bottle of rosé…or two. Whether hanging in the Hamptons or living it up in the city, take a swig of a rosy wine produced at one of New York’s wineries. From Long Island to the Finger Lakes, here are five summer rosés from vineyards around New York.
Nutt Road Vineyard, Finger Lakes
Medium-bodied in color (bright blue-pink) and sparkling with fruity flavor, Kelby James Russell Dry Rosé is buzzing with a bouquet of strawberry, raspberry, and citrus.
Lieb Cellars, North Fork of Long Island
Fox Run Vineyards, Finger Lakes
The Lemberger grape delivers a fragrant aroma in Fox Run Vineyards’ Rosé of Lemberger of floral, cherry, and spice notes.
Belhurst Winery, Finger Lakes
Flaunting a nose of nectarine, peaches, and apricot and a creamy mouth of strawberry rhubarb and lime zest, this light and fruity rosé pairs with a variety of dishes like a spicy seafood salad or warm tortilla chips. Only 150 cases of Belhurst Dry Rosé were produced.
Wölffer Estate Vineyard, Long Island
The embodiment of a spirited summer in the Hamptons, Wölffer’s Summer in a Bottle Rosé is a complex wine boasting the flavors and aromas of the local fruit.
