Hello, summer! Since the color is on-brand for us, we rounded up our top six picks of rosé wines to help you get in the mood for summer, Fridays and summer Fridays. Of course, we are a creative firm, so we based our top choices on packaging design first, then price and taste. Without further ado, please start enjoying your summah… now!

 

rose wine packaging design round-up
Bedell Taste Rosé 2012
Bedell Cellars, North Fork, Long Island, NY, USA
$25

Hailing from a scenic vineyard in our own state of New York – on Long Island’s North Fork – this rosé’s label features a black and white stylized photo that was specially commissioned for Bedell by internationally renowned artist Barbara Kruger. This is not the best-priced wine on our list, but it is one of the most delicious and the grapes are sustainably grown.

 

 

 

les-dauphins-rose-3x4
Les Dauphins Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2012

Celliers des Dauphins, Rhône Valley, France
$19

We love the classic European typography on this wine label along with the bright, more modern-looking colors – bright teal and red. The wine itself can be described as fruity, fresh and easy to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Chivite-Gran-Feudo-Rosado-3x4
Julian Chivite Gran Feudo Rosado 2011
Bodegas Julian Chivite, Navarra, Spain
$12

What we love most about this packaging is its simple, nautical look and feel. Aside from that, this is one of the most popular pink wines in Spain and is a great buy at about $12 a bottle.

 

 

 

 

 

Charles and Charles Rose cap 014
Charles & Charles Rosé 2012
Charles Smith Wines, Columbia Valley, WA, USA
$13

Though we don’t always love the idea of American flags in design, we love the distressed flag look on this bottle. It’s refreshing for wine label design, and an extra bonus for the 4th of July. The wine itself is described as lively, fruity and salty with savory tart strawberry, citrus and melon flavors and a little effervescence.

 

 

 

 

Sofia-Rose-bottle-3x4


Francis Ford Coppola Sofia Rosé 2011

Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Central Coast, CA, USA
$15

In general we tend to love wines by Francis Ford Coppola (especially their sparkling Sofia Blanc de Blancs that comes in pink to-go cans), but we also like the packaging design. The bottle shape is bulbous and unique, and the label is a cute circular sticker with a floral illustration and sharp, modern sans serif. YUM.

 

 

 

 

 

Juve-Y-Camps-Brut-Rose-Cava-3x4


Juve Y Camps Rosé Brut Cava

Juve Y Camps, Catalonia (Penedès), Spain
$17

This is another wine label we admire for its classic design, but we also think the light pink background gives it a modern spin. And, we appreciate a good two-tone color scheme. Sometimes not using every color in the box is refreshing. The sparkling wine itself is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes and is from one of our favorite wine regions of Penedès, outside of Barcelona, knows for many organic, sustainable wine practices.
