I usually buy my Christmas gifts on December 23 for crying out loud. So if you're a last minute shopper like I am, I'm here to help you out. What better way to say "Thanks for everything, mom!" than with a nice bottle of a summertime favorite — rosé wine. Here are eight rosé bottles for Mother's Day that will surely make the most important woman in your life smile.
Over the past couple of years rosé has become the thing to drink during the warmer seasons. The wine has spawned rosé exclusive events and a mass rollout of various products embossed with "Rosé All Day" on them, in order to identify yourself as a rosé connoisseur. But rosé isn't just a member of the "millennial pink" trend — it's also a wine that your mom likely enjoys just as much as you do. Plus, a pink bottle of wine just looks cute in general. So for these reasons (and more), here is a selection of rosé wines at various price points to gift your mom for Mother's Day.
Fleur de Mer Côtes de Provence Rosé, $16
This bottle literally translates to "flower of the sea," so you can guess that this pairs perfectly with any seafood dishes. Fleur de Mer's rosé has a gorgeous coral-y pink color, is packaged beautifully, and is priced at an amazingly low $16. This bottle is guaranteed to be a hit with mom.
Channing Daughters Rosato di Cabernet Franc 2017, $17
This is a top-ranked rosé hailing from Long Island, NY — home to some of the best vineyards on the East Coast. It's a very light and fresh wine with notes of "raspberry, watermelon, currant, saline minerality, green plum, light red fruit and citrus." It's a relatively high end bottle that won't hurt your bank account at its $17 price point.
Finca Wölffer Rosé 2017, $18
This gorgeous bottle of rosé from Wölffer Estate in New York state can be gifted alone or look amazing as a part of a Mother's Day gift basket. I mean, this bottle is just too adorable to pass up. This perfect summer wine has notes of "citrus, ripe berry, peach and a hint of sundried grass" — which is absolutely perfect for the warmer weather. And at $17.99, this bottle is an absolute steal.
Gérard Bertrand Cote des Roses Languedoc Rosé, $18
This bottle has the most incredible design — it looks like it came straight out of a fairytale. Gerard Bertrand Cotes des Roses rosé is super fresh and light, with a classic Grenache-Syrah-Cinsault blend of grapes, but honestly, the stunning design is pretty much what sold me on this bottle. The $18 price tag isn't too shabby, either.
Tank Garage Winery 2017 Stars Like Ours Rosé, $22
This California wine from the Napa Valley just screams "Mother's Day." Tank Garage Winery's vintage photo on the front of this rosé bottle is nostalgic and timeless — and a perfect fit for any mom. It's a totally unique salmon-colored wine with notes of "delicate tropical fruits, ripe strawberry, crushed rocks and refreshing grapefruit rind," which sounds amazing. Plus at $22, it's still a bottle that's friendly on your wallet.
Chateau d'Esclans Whispering Angel Rose 2016, $23
Domaines Ott BY.OTT Rosé, $25
This wine is the most expensive out of the bunch at $25, but it looks like it cost a lot more money than that. The unique shape to the rosé bottle is absolutely stunning, and its "full, fresh and crisp" taste is sure to agree with any palate.
Schramsberg Brut Rosé, $42
OK, I lied, this is the most expensive. If you're looking to splurge and go for a bottle of bubbly, might I suggest Schramsberg's Californian sparkling rosé. It is slightly pricier than the bottles previously mentioned at $42, but it's guaranteed to be worth the price. Plus, fun fact: sparkling wines from this vineyard have been served at White House State functions since the 70's. So with this bottle you and mom will be tasting a little bit of U.S. history.
With all these great options, how can you know which one to pick? Well, honestly, it doesn't matter. We all know that your mom will love any of them — provided she's drinking them with you.
