Stories behind the wine
Called a Blush in the USA, a Rosé in France and a Rosado in Spain, the popularity of the pink drink has skyrocketed among wine lovers in the United States. However, blush wines aren’t a new revelation. Blush wines have been made as far back as the 1800s, but become well known in the United States in the 1970s by Sutter Home Winery. Sutter Home was the inventor of the famous “White Zinfandel” which you know is not white; it’s pink. It’s worth noting that the White Zinfandel is a semi-sweet wine and does have around five grams of sugar in each glass. Since most quality wines have zero sugar, the White Zinfandel has created a fascinating debate among wine enthusiasts whether adding sugar is cheating.
