9. ROSE, COTE D’AZUR, FRANCE
This is a kind of wine that is pink in color. The color can differ of course but mostly it stays a shade of pink depending on the technique. Mostly this wine is produced by crushing black-skinned grapes where the skins are allowed to remain in contact with the juice for a period of two to three days. In most countries, what they do is mix the red and white wine in order to achieve the pinkish shade. That of course is the easier method. If you are out of an original rose, you can always mix the usual red and white for your pleasure. It is famous in France.
