How Rose Wine is Produced?
Rose wine is made similarly to other red wines; the time it ferments with grape skins is reduced. This reduced skin contact is what gives rose wine its signature pink hue. Each region has a different process to make these rose wines.
For rose wines, producers macerate for a few hours, up to a day. Once the juice has changed to the desired colour, the skins are removed and the juice is fermented.
Some rose varieties start as red wines and then the winemakers add charcoal to get a lighter colour. In other cases, they remove some of the colours from red wine and use the leftovers for rose wines. Hence, making these pinkish wines more sustainable than you may think.
