One of the hottest trends in Pacific Northwest wine country is dry pink wines, a category that only seems to grow annually and shows no sign of slowing down.
Indeed, across our region, it is easy to find more than 100 examples of pink wines being made in all styles.
Fortunately, most are made in the dry style typical of southern France’s Provence region, rather than the pink, sweet “California Kool-Aid” style that too often was passed off as domestic blush the past couple of decades.
Rosés offer the best of both worlds: appealing to red and white wine lovers, and typically pairing well with regional cuisine, from fresh seafood to Asian and other international-inspired dishes.
This time of year, it’s a good idea to keep a couple of bottles of pink in your fridge, ready to come out whenever dinner hits the table.

And make sure you purchase a few extra bottles to pair with that Thanksgiving bird.>>>Read the entire article featuring JM Cellars, LOVE THAT RED WINERY and more on The Spokesman Review
