Château Miraval Rosé

Love didn’t keep Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie together, but their wine, Miraval, is still flowing strong. When the former celebrity couple came out with the rosé, it was such a hit that it was named “the best rosé in the world.” When they split, the first question was, “What will happen with the wine?” Luckily, the wine lives on!

Pitt once said that he tastes every barrel himself — but now, I’m not sure who tastes for him now since he is rocking a sober life. Made from four grape varietals in Provence, it’s an elegant wine that works for all types of occasions. This wine is perfect for what Wendy Williams calls the “kitchen table top,” when you are with family and friends sharing secrets, celebrity gossip, and the joys or oys of life.

Diving Into Hampton Water Rosé

Can you imagine Jon Bon Jovi sipping rosé by the pool? It’s not a bad image at all. He just launched a new rosé inspired by the Hamptons called Diving Into Hampton Water. Rosé wine is known as “Hampton’s Gatorade” because it’s a big deal during the summer. Bon Jovi’s son, Jesse Bongiovi, came up with the concept and name of the wine. While the name of the wine features the Hamptons, it’s actually produced in the South of France by the very charming winemaker, Gérard Bertrand.

It’s the kind of wine to sip by a pool when hanging out with your boo. The wine is selling out because it’s shiny and new. If you can get your hands on a bottle, it will be a special treat for you and the one you love.

Sofia Rosé

This rosé by Francis Ford Coppola is named after his only daughter Sofia, who most people know as a talented director and screenwriter. With her busy schedule, I can’t help but wonder how often she has her wine. This California wine is a blend of Syrah and Pinot Noir. It’s an elegant wine in a sexy bottle that showcases the lively pink color of the rosé. The aromas in the wine are floral and berries, which make it wonderful to pair with fish, seafood, and cheese.

Skip the Sofia Rosé bubbles in the can and go for the still wine in a bottle. It’s perfect to pair with a quiet date night at home or when you’re cooking dinner together.

Vanderpump Rosé

While Lisa Vanderpump is famous for being one of the stars of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she is quickly becoming known for her wine. Since she and her husband, Ken Todd, are in the hospitality business with 28 bars and restaurants, having a wine is a natural progression. The Vanderpump Rosé is produced in Provence, so it’s perfect to drink when you want to feel like you are in the France without hopping on a plane. As Vanderpump says, “Life isn’t all diamonds and rosé — but it should be.”

It’s a feminine wine with a lot of personality on the palate. This wine is perfect for your summer soirees at a rooftop bar or in the backyard with your squad.
