Rosé and summer go hand in hand. Warm weather, lazy beach days and fiery sunsets call for a glass of the pink, but with countless varietals and eye-catching bottles being released each year, it’s hard to know which ones to buy.
That’s why we did the hard part for you and narrowed down the list to these very drinkable—and Instagrammable—rosé wines and champagnes. Get ready to break out the ice bucket and toast to the start of #roséallday season (along with International Rosé Day on June 13), because if there’s one thing you want to sip on the porch, by the pool, or on a roof somewhere in the middle of summer, it’s rosé.
Fleurs de Prairie ($20): One of those wines that gets it right—from the very first sip. “Fleurs de Prairie” means “Wildflowers” in French and we’re wild for it, thanks to its bright, refreshing acidity. The grapes are sourced from select Provençal vineyards, with ideal growing conditions, and the result is delightfully fresh.

For every bottle sold of this limited-time release, Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits will donate $1 to Operation Gratitude, a leading nonprofit that sends care packages and letters of thanks to troops stationed abroad.
We recently shared a list of the best new American whiskies, focusing on single malts, bottled-in-bond and leaders in innovation. Now, inspired by World Whiskey Day, we’ve expanded our horizons to include whiskies from around the globe. These don’t have to be the priciest, rarest or even newest—they’re simply the best brown spirits that are moving us right now. And since we currently can’t we travel with our feet, we might as well with our thirsty palates.
