Looking for the perfect rosé for your bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, or shower? We’ve done some pretty hard work around here (life is tough!) testing some delicious wines—we've come up with a list of our favorite rosés that are affordable to boot. Don’t worry, we won’t tell if you decide to grab a couple of these just for yourself—no special occasion needed!
Vinebox The Rosé Collection, $49
You know what goes perfectly with that flamingo pool float? A single-serve sampling of your new favorite rosé blend. Vinebox The Rosé Collection comes packed with six test-tube-like vessels, each filled with a different rosé. Particularly perfect for bachelorette parties, you can get each girl her own box as a favor so she can taste them all (and not get bored with the same one bottle of wine the whole weekend), or one box for the group so everyone can select their own blend of choice. Having a destination bachelorette? Even better! The individual tubes adhere to FDA regulations, so you can even toast the bride-to-be on the plane!
Wine notes from the experts: A sampling of almost every style—oak aged, light and zippy, rich and textured, and even a red wine-rosé hybrid; hand-curated from across Europe.
Meiomi 2016 Rosé, $24.99
Meiomi’s first rosé to date—we loveeee this wine. We were already a fan of their pinot noir and chardonnay, so when we found out they were coming out with a rosé, we couldn’t wait to try it...and, it didn’t disappoint! Meiomi wines are blends of the highest-quality grapes from Sonoma, Monterey, and Santa Barbara counties, creating (for all your wine-o’s out there) a classically coastal Californian wine.
Wine notes from the experts: This dry rosé has vibrant acidity, summer fruit, and delicate floral aromas.
E. Guigal Rosé, $14.99
This wine is perfect for year-long drinking (not just summer). The Guigal family has made serious rosés since the '40s, and their Côtes du Rhône Rosé explodes with sumptuous fruits, but is also long and satisfying. Elegant, refined, and complex, this rosé is perfectly balanced.
Wine notes from the experts: Bursting with red fruits, fresh nose of red fruits—raspberry and redcurrant—and citrus.
Noble Vines 515 Rosé, $15
Named after the perfect time to stop and enjoy this rosé (5:15pm!), this is another easy-drinking wine. And just like Meiomi, we were already a fan of Noble and equally anxious to try the rosé—and we weren’t disappointed!
Wine notes from the experts: This snappy wine has a lively start with flavors of grapefruit and strawberry, then cherry, culminating in a fresh creamy finish.
M de Minuty 2016 Rosé, $19
Besides this deliciously dry rosé being downright delicious, we love that all of Minuty’s wines are grown utilizing sustainable practices and are chemical free. Plus, this wine is the prettiest ultra-pale shade of blush, perfect for a bridal shower.
Wine notes from the experts: A vibrant, dry rosé with balanced white peach and candied orange peel aroma.
SAVED Rosé, $20
Artist Scott Campbell and winemaker Clay Brock collaborated to create SAVED wines in 2013 (named after Campbell’s Brooklyn tattoo parlor). This rosé is not only delicious, but also beautifully designed (we’re a sucker for packaging) which shouldn’t be a surprise considering Campbell’s background.
Wine notes from the experts: Unabashedly dry, and brightly layered with notes of tangerine, strawberries, and green apple.
Kim Crawford Rosé, $17.99
Crisp and light, this rosé is another easy-sipper from one of our favorite New Zealand winemakers. It's just the right amount of girly while still staying serious.
Wine notes from the experts: Soft and luscious, this rosé is richly fruited with hints of watermelon and strawberry.
Josh Cellars Rosé, $12.99
Another company with consistently delicious wines, we also love that founder Joseph Carr has raised over $300,000 to help first responders, the troops, and their families in honor of his father who was a soldier and volunteer firefighter.
Wine notes from the experts: Light-bodied, dry, and bursting with white peach and strawberries, finishing with a crisp, mouthwatering citrus flavor.
Summer Water Rosé, $15
A collaboration between Winc and Yes Way Rosé, this prettily packaged wine can easily be bought by the bottle OR the case so you can sip on it all summer long. The limited edition summer subscription program is currently sold out (it includes three magnum deliveries plus cute merch) but worth trying for the waitlist!
Wine notes from the experts: Dry, light, and perfectly crisp with notes of strawberry, pink grapefruit, and white peach.
