Rosé is one of the most popular drinks around, especially as the weather gets warmer and consumers around the country are eager to enjoy a light, refreshing glass of wine. The popular pink beverage, which is made from a wide variety of grapes using the skin contact method, is beloved for its notes of red fruit, citrus, melon, and more. It also boasts a vibrant hue, and is generally affordable. While there is a wide range of prices for a glass of rosé, you often don't have to spend a good chunk of change in order to enjoy the drink.
