One of summer's hottest trends is rosé, and we love it as much as you do. So we've rounded up the best Austin restaurants and bars to enjoy the most refreshing drink of the season.
Rosé by the glass: Vino Vino
This wine bar has a wonderful, laid-back atmosphere and offers a glass of rosé of the day for $12. Pair that with happy hour, which runs 3 to 7 pm on weekdays and 5:30 to 7 pm on Saturdays, for $2 off all wines by the glass and a handful of half-priced appetizers.
Rosé by the bottle: Winebelly
Winebelly boasts an expansive list of wines so impressive that the South Austin spot is considered one of the best wine bars in the country. The space is adorned with bottles, and a case in the back showcases the best rosés in the house. Winebelly's gorgeous back patio begs you to split a bottle (or two) with friends and enjoy Austin's warm summer evenings.
Rosé in a can: Infinite Monkey Theorem
This funky South Austin urban winery produces a wonderful rosé made with Texas-grown grapes that can be enjoyed in a variety of fashions: frozen, on tap, by the bottle, or in a can. Yes, you can get rosé, featuring a slight sparkle and fruity flavor, in Infinite Monkey Theorem's signature four-pack.
Expert selection: June's All Day
The selection is small, but you can trust that the rosés at June's are some of the best on the market. The restaurant's beverage director, June Rodil, is a master sommelier and one of the best wine experts in town. The current menu includes sparkling and still options, mostly from France. Ask your server for a suggestion, and indulge in a post-work wine down with South Congress views.
Frozen rosé: Hotel San Jose
Time to talk about frozen rosé, aka frosé. Hotel San Jose's frozen rosé will keep you cool on a hot summer day and is the perfect complement to the hip SoCo setting. Check the hotel's calendar and plan your visit around live music or a fun pop-up.
Rosé with a shot: King Bee Lounge
This east side dive offers a rosé and mezcal pairing that's dangerously delicious. The slight acidity of the wine is a great accompaniment to the smokiness of the mezcal. Trust us.
