wine wednesday {ruffino rosé}

So I would actually consider this as more of a rose champagne, but we should also find something to celebrate each day of our live so cheers to that! 

Maxim and I live next to a CVS that supplies a lot of alcohol, and so we often times find ourselves puttering on over in search of a cheap bottle of red or canned rose. We say this and thought we'd try it out as it was a newcomer to the shelves. 

It's bubbly + sweet + goes great with La Croix if you're more of a spritzer-type (shoutout to Kate). Cheers! xx

Ruffino Sparkling Rose

BOTTLE: Ruffino Sparkling Rose

Origin: Tuscany, Italy 

What is it: Prosecco (Glera) grapes

Where to find it: CVS, Target, Whole Foods, Total Wine & More. 

Price Range: $12-15 

Thoughts: I really loved this wine — like REALLY loved it. It's sweet and bubbly without tasting like carbonated sugar, which is honestly such a really struggle with rose. I tried it with cranberry juice + loved it, too. But for the best possible experience, drink it as a frosé during a picnic in the park with a spread of {vegan} cheese + crackers + grapes. Or on your balcony on a hot evening after work. {p.s. more frosé recipes here}

This bottle is totally my vote to bring to summer lunches when cans aren't going to fly. 

ENJOY YOUR WINE WEDNESDAY!
