Rosé wine is typically a summer favorite for those with a taste for sweet wines, but what if you're a person who'd rather have a dry tasting wine with the same flavor?

Nancie from St. Julian Winery came by the studio with a variety of rosé  wines to talk about which wine might be right for your taste buds.

Rosé is a red wine, where the skins of red grapes only touch the wine for a short amount of time. Rosé is fermented in the grape skins for a few hours, versus a red wine that can ferment for weeks at a time.

Rosé is commonly known for having a sweet taste, however St. Julian has a wide variety of rosé wines ranging from sweet, to completely dry:

BR Blanc de noir- A sparkling white wine made from red grapes tasting clean and crisp, emphasizing on berry fruit.

BR Serious Rose- A dry wine tasting of fresh, ripe cherries and strawberries.

FLiRT- A semi-sweet wine made with berries and fruit from Michigan.

Lust- A semi-sweet wine tasting of berries and juicy fruit.

St. Julian is located at 716 South Kalamazoo Street in Paw Paw, and have tasting rooms in Frankenmuth, Union Pier and Dundee.
