All About Rosé:

Most rosé fans lean toward a beautiful, pale pink hue that Provençal rosé is typically known for, however, color doesn’t necessarily indicate how a wine will taste. If a rosé isn’t that light pink shade, don’t dismiss it. While a darker rosé might be fuller-bodied than a lighter one, that doesn’t mean it will be sweeter—a common assumption. Likewise, a pale pink rosé isn’t guaranteed to be dry.

Many of the first recorded wines were rosé, made by watering down field blends of combined white and red grapes. Eventually, the Greeks and Romans explored separating grapes by color, and red and (mostly) white wines were born. For quite some time, the general preference was for the less harsh, lighter-colored wines and rosé remained the beverage of choice for centuries.

The majority of rosé wine is produced from red grapes—common ones include Grenache, Syrah, Sangiovese, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon—but you can also produce rosé from white grapes (Chardonnay grapes in sparkling rosés, for example) and “gray” grapes such as Grenache Gris, a pinkish-gray varietal of the Grenache grape, which lends itself nicely to rosé wine.
