|Rosé from Spain is a great dining option|
When the call went out to round up some wine for our Easter dinner, I had two recommendations. The first is an obvious pairing with our holiday ham: Riesling. Another fantastic option, although probably not top of mind, is rosé.

Rosé is usually lighter in style and lower in alcohol than most table wine, making it a flexible choice for meals ranging from salad to seafood to poultry. In our case, we needed a wine for our Easter ham.
My pick was the Beronia 2018 Rosé from the González Bypass family of wines. González Bypass is a family-owned collection of wineries that was founded in 1835 and focused on Spanish sherry. Today the company offers wines from Spain’s most iconic regions and represents a number of international wineries.

The Beronia rosé is a blend of 55% Garnacha and 45% Tempranillo from Spain’s most famous region: Rioja. The wine is pale pink in color. In Spain, rosé is often called rosado and usually has a more pronounced flavor than lighter rosé from France. It has more personality.

The wine is also vegan-friendly. The color of the wine was a nice complement to our dessert -- a vegan lemon lavender poppy cake with blackberry frosting.
With hot weather knocking on the door, this is a perfect time to stock up on crisp, refreshing bottles like the Beronia rosé. The SRP is $12.99, which makes the sipping even more enjoyable!
