White & RosÉ Wine
From crisp, dry varietals to sweet wines, there are a plethora of choices when it comes to white wine and rosé. And while they’re both served chilled and are totally refreshing on a warm day, the way they’re made is actually quite different.
With all types of white wine, the skin is removed before fermentation. Rosé, on the other hand, gets its lovely blush wine color from skin contact, through a process called maceration. It’s similar to the way red wine is made, but with less time spent in contact with the grape skins.

Which Glass Should I Use for White or Rosé Wine?
Unlike red wine, white and rosé wines does not need to breathe as extensively. There are two main types of white wine glasses: one for high-acid white wines (think Riesling) and one for full-bodied white wines (think a white Burgundy). White wine glasses do have a longer stem than other wine glass styles, and that is because white wine is served at a colder temperature. The elongated stem allows extra room for the taster’s hand so that the temperature of the wine will not be affected by body heat.
