It's that day, all day — Rosé!
If you plan to rosé all day, today is the day.
This year National Rosé Day falls on June 9, saluting those with a taste for pink blush, or however one refers to that not quite red, not quite white wine.
Rosé is probably the oldest known type of wine, dating back as far as 600 BC. Rosé wines are generally made from red grapes and are very versatile wines that complement many types of food. Rosé is lighter than red wine and deeper than white wine. The pink color of rosé wine depends on the time the grape skin stays in contact with the juice, also known as maceration. There are rosé wines that are semi-sparkling or sparkling, with different intensities of sweetness levels and dryness.
Some began their celebrating early.
Others stocked up in advance.
And if you somehow forgot today is National Rosé Day, no worries.

Or declaring your preference with a creative stopper.
Dessert and more dessert, yes please.
Rosé is a sweet wine and, for some of us, the more sweets the better.
Did someone say rosé bonbons?
Sensing a trend here. Ummmmm.
But if it's savory you like ...
