Someone once said, “Anything is possible with sunshine and a glass of rosé wine,” and all the rosé lovers would definitely agree to it. Today we are going to talk about BRUT ROSE - a type of wine that you leave you asking for more.
‘Brut’ is the French word for dry. Therefore, brut sparkling wine refers to a dry sparkling wine. Brut is also a term that’s used to describe Champagne. However, when winemakers refer to brut wine, they are referring to the style of wine, rather than any particular variety.
We bring you the most delicious Brut Rosés that you need to try this 2020
