A Definitive Guide To What To Eat With Your Rosé

You probably noticed there were different types of rosé the same way we did—by drinking a lot of it. And while rosé happens to be a very versatile wine, there are certain foods it pairs best with, if you’re fancy and so inclined. To get the scoop, we chatted with Heidi Turzyn, wine director for Gotham Bar and Grill, and she gave us the scoop:

“The taste profiles for rosé wines vary based on the different grape varietals used and the time on the skins,” says Heidi. “The Saignée method will leave you with a light pink hue that will be dry with subtle aromatics… Examples of other varietals would be Cabernet Franc leading to savory notes, or Pinot Noir offering more fruit. If the wine is a darker hue it may give a touch of tannins and will have a fuller mouth feel. These different styles make rosé wines extremely versatile.”

Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean our favorite pink drink is about to get complicated.

Here, a simple guide to the foods that pair best with your beloved rosés. Bonus: We also included our very favorite pink wines as well as the things we ate with them that weren’t expert-approved but still tasted good (because you don’t always have time to buy fancy cheese).
