A rosé (from French rosé; also known as rosado in latin speaking countries and rosato in Italy) is a type of wine that incorporates some of the colour from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. The pink colour can range from a pale peach to a vivid fusia, depending on the varietals used and wine making techniques.
There are three major ways to produce rosé wine: skin contact, saignée, and blending. Rosé wines can be made still, semi-sparkling or sparkling and with a wide range of sweetness levels from highly dry to sweet. Rosé wines are made from a wide variety of grapes and can be found all around the globe.
