You've been hearing "rosé all day" for years now, and there's no letting up on its popularity. More than just being all over Instagram, light blush wines pair well with BBQ plates and picnics full of cheese and fruit. Here's a few favorites that you know and love as well as some new, brave takes on the classic rosé (cider, anyone?).
California Roots Rosé ($5) : This bottle from Target is low-key, no fuss, and tasty. It goes with that face mask you’re picking up at the end of yet another long day. You work hard. It’s time to treat yourself.
Chandon Rosé Mini ($8) : It's hard to sit still, especially during the summer months. The mini bottles are convenient for solo sipping while you're camping inside a yurt or watching the sunset by the beach.
La Vieille Ferme ($8) : Sometimes you have to cave to your gut instincts and buy a bottle of wine because there's a rooster on the label. Good thing this option is actually quite sippable too!
Angry Orchard Rosé Cider ($9) : Sweet, pretty, and a little spunkier than actual wine, this rosé cider is light and refreshing. We know you've seen them around, so why not step outside your comfort zone and give one a try?
Vilarnau Cava Brut Reserva Rosé ($17) : We vote this as the summer showstopper, between its robust Mediterranean taste and a brilliantly designed bottle.
Summer Water ($18) : Whether you're buying a single bottle to enjoy for the evening or you've indulged in Winc's Societé, a mailing club for rosé, Summer Water will make a great addition to your pool season. The June shipment from Societé includes 24 mini bottles (sign up by May 15). Cheers to doling out drinks easily for all those summer get-togethers.
A to Z Bubbles ($18) : If you're the type of person who cherishes varied influences and feeds off new experiences, then this is the wine for you. Made in Oregon, Bubbles is a whole lot of something in a single glass.
McPherson Cellars Les Copains Rosé ($18) : If you're looking for a glass of something homey, you’ll love the way this Texas rosé pairs with your weekend roast. Open the windows, set the table, and get ready for a cozy meal with someone you love.
2017 Estate Rosé ($21) : This is a crisp and classic rosé from California winery Stolpman Vineyards. They handpick the fruit each season, which gives this bottle a little something extra special.
Domaine Charles Audoin Marsannay Rose ($30) : Whether you're just feeling fancy or have graduated to the next level of adulting, it may be time for you to buy a rosé from Burgundy. Wines from that region are famous across the world, and darling, it's time you found out why.
Hangar Rosé Vodka ($32) : Look. We've all been there. Sometimes wine just doesn't cut it, and you need something with a little more "oomph." The folks over at Hangar Vodka have found a beautiful medium between vodka and California rosé. You've got to try it to believe it.
