In honor of National Rosé Day on June 10th and our new Riviera collection, we've asked the expert behind Rudi's Old Village Wine Shop in Mt. Pleasant's Old Village to share his top picks for summer. This charming cafe just across the bridge from downtown Charleston is one of our favorite spots to relax and enjoy some live music from the guitarist they often have on site. See below for Rudi's recommendations!
Chateau d'Esclans Whispering Angel Rosé
"Strikingly pale pink in color with flavors of fresh red berries, nectarine, and white flowers. The name "Angel" really suits the delicate nature of the wine."
Esprit Gassier Rosé Côtes de Provence
"Light bright orange-pink in color with notes of cherry, blood orange, and refreshing tangerine. This beautiful bottle is the perfect gift for a summer celebration."
Mirabelle Brut Rosé
"This bubbly from The Schramsberg vineyard had a deep salmon color where hints of glazed pear and peach delicately join the bright bursting flavors of cherry and watermelon. Best of both worlds - a little sparkling and Rosé!"
And if you're located in or visiting Charleston, be sure to stop by Rudi's second location inside the newly opened Skinny Dip boutique on King Street. The Rudi's Caffé e Vino Frosé is made with fresh ginger and strawberries daily.
