Rosé To Go: 9 Brands For All Your Summer Gatherings

More From ForbesIt’s no secret that summer is the time of year when the most rosé is consumed. According to Nielsen Data from 2021, Q2 rosé sales totaled $216 million, increasing from $144 million in sales during Q1. Not to mention, National Rosé Day falls on June 11, unofficially kicking off summer ten days before the solstice on June 21. It only makes sense then that two trending categories merge during the warmer weather — with the RTD craze as prominent as ever, these are the rosé brands that should be on your radar for all the picnics, beach days and outdoor activities of the season.

Both the still and sparkling rosé clock in at zero grams of sugar and 13 percent ABV per can.

Don’t let its refreshing drinkability deceive, though — at 10.5 percent ABV, a single serving packs a punch.
