Noozhawk: With Growing Popularity of Local Rosines Santa Barbara County Is in the Pink

Gone are the days of the taboo rosé. This pink wine is on the rise to mainstream in Santa Barbara County.

Rosé got the bad rap for years as being a saccharine sweet wine that was both amatuerish and linked to the memory of waspy, suburban poolside scenes.

However, the rosé of today is sophisticated and often unrivaled on a hot summer day. France has been producing award-winning rosé wines for years, and now Santa Barbara County has fully embraced the same lifestyle, making pink wines that are praiseworthy from even the snobbiest of French wine tasters.

You can bet your bottom dollar that this self-proclaimed wine snob will be sipping these new favorites this summer, sans the poolside scene.2015 Jamie Slone Rosé

This zesty yet smooth and approachable light-pink wine has been a favorite of mine to keep on hand for guests. The strawberry notes and bright acidity of this wine makes it great for any occasion, and it will likely go fast this summer.
