Rosé all day.

In case you've been ... ehmm ... living under a rock or something, rosé is having a bit of a moment right now in the world of wine. The drink of choice for summertime partying bros, but also for classy ladies who lunch, rosé is one of those beverages that can be dressed up or down for any setting.

For this list, we're sticking to dry rosé varieties (as opposed to sweeter options), because a dry rosé has the acidity of white wine but the fruit character of red — making it one of the easiest and most food-friendly wines. From rich and creamy cheese dishes to fresh seafood, grilled chicken, pizza, and flatbread, you really can't go wrong.

A versatile, refreshing, and budget-friendly wine built for virtually any occasion or season, here are our favorite bottles of dry rosé to get you in the mood for summertime sipping.
