Rosé is an Experience
Visit Mon Ami Gabi – Chicago and sip on Costieres de Nimes, “Chateau de Campuget,” Mon Ami Gabi’s featured rosé. This wine derives from Rhone, a key wine-producing region in the South of France, which is considered the epicenter of rosé. Take in refreshing notes of raspberries and strawberries as you enjoy the bottle in the dining room or the newly redone bistro-style patio.
For a California rosé experience, don’t miss a visit to The Oakville Grill & Cellar. From Santa Barbara to Mendocino, travel California through rosé with 20 bottle options including vintage sparkling rosés and two by-the-glass options.
Frosé for the hot days
Soak up the sun at Summer House – Lincoln Park with a Frozé Como Vas in hand, a refreshing frozen cocktail with Summer House Rosé, Cocchi americano, Aperol, and Strawberry Purée.
Make a reservation at Summer House – Lincoln Park.
Pizzeria Portofino’s Frosé is the perfect sip to enjoy the prime river views on a hot summer day.

Stop by Ema after work or during weekend brunch for a glass of Tempranillo, Ostatu Rosado, Rioja, Spain 2022 or Cabernet Franc, ‘La Grande Cuvee’ Dourthe Vineyards, Bordeaux, France 2022 on the sun-filled patio in River North.
Round out an afternoon of shopping with a glass of Primitivo Rosato, Masseria Borgo Del Trulli, Puglia or Sparkling Rosé, Domaine Saint Vincent, Albuquerque and all of your favorite pastas, brick-oven pizzas and dessert (of course) at Antico Posto.
A Quick Word from the Pros
Take it from the experts and choose wine wisely for your next outdoor picnic, beach excursion or just a sunny day. Richard Hanauer, partner at RPM Restaurants and The Oakville Grill & Cellar, schools us on the art of choosing the perfect rosé.
Light & Refreshing, with or without food: Provençal-style rosé is the quintessential rosé and is refreshing and light in color & body. Look for keywords of “Aix-en-Provence” or “Cotes-du-Provence”.
Light vs Dark Colored Rosé: Color can be a great guide in how to choose rosé. The lighter the color the more refreshing, while deeper hues of pink indicate a more complex wine reminiscent of a light-bodied red wine.
Pocketbook-Friendly Choices: There is never a need to go over budget when you’re buying rosé! Compared to red wines, rosé is often less expensive to produce and price tags often don’t always reflect the quality of the wine inside the bottle. When in doubt, grab a $10-15 bottle of Provençal-style or Italian Rosato such as Fiume di Vino at Pizzeria Portofino.
