Taste Testing Cheap Rosé: What’s Good and What’s Really Bad?

My partner in wine and co-star of our hit series, “Name That Wine” went deep into the “Cheap Shit” aisle at the wine store for this episode. We taste-tested three rosés wines priced at $9.99 or less. Two are good, one is positively barf-inducing. Ugh – so bad! Have a laugh and check it out!

Rosé is meant to be drunk young – it’s not one of those wines that anyone stuffs into their fancy wine cellar to age for years or decades. You should look for 2017 and 2018 vintages now and drink UP! Rosé goes with almost any food – hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, fish, barbecue, salads, corn on the cob, cheese and crackers, potato chips – you name it.

IMG_1929As we hit the apex, the summit, the PEAK of rosé season, run, don’t walk to your nearest shop and stock up on cheap rosé! Just not that one. (You have to watch to find out which one is so bad it should be illegal.)  Cheers to cheap rosé and summer time!


  1. Liz, try Domaine Houchart, Cotes de Provence, 2017 rose. Got it on sale for $7.99 and it’s much better than your #1! Loved the video, however!
