Wine is the best social beverage created by people almost thousands of years ago, and today it is known to compliment every special or social occasion. Almost thousand years from now since the first wine was produced, presently there are just uncountable varieties of wines. The two broad classifications of wine are red and white wines, such a classification is must because there are thousands of mind boggling varieties of wines. This standard classification of red and white wine is based on the mere color basis but there are few classifications of wines that are based on the regions they are grown. Sparkling wines are wines that have fizz because of the presence of carbon dioxide.
Sparkling Rose wines have been discovered few decades ago just after the Second World War, these wines were welcomed whole heartedly and thereby they became a regular table wine. Sparkling rose wines come under the classification of rose wines and they are enjoyed much with the sparkling effect rather than without it. In addition to their unforgettable taste they are also known for their rich rosy aroma. A distinct feature is the fizz that comes out on opening because carbon dioxide is injected at an atmospheric pressure of 2-3 atmospheres. Sparkling wines are known as celebration drinks and we all are aware of the fact in parties that people shake the bottle well before they open to experience the amazing fizz and fragrance of sparkling rose wines.
Sparkling rose wines are manufactured in France, Italy and Napa Valley. The manufacturers of sparkling rose wines enjoy high sales volumes as compared to other luxurious wines and it is particularly a great hit in the online market. Sparkling rose wines are available in both sparkling (CO2 content over 2.5 atmospheres) as well as semi sparkling version (CO2 content of 1-2.5 atmospheres). Sparkling rose wine is one of the star wines of the genre of rose wine family. They have an appealing and pleasant color ranging from pale orange to deeper pink shades. It is interesting to know that they are named as sparkling rose wine because of the mere color and they have no association with the flower rose. Many people interpret that they are produced from the flower rose but that is not the case. Rose wines in addition to their exquisite taste are equipped with all the benefits of red wines. Moderate consumption is to be remembered with the consumption of the sparkling rose wines in order to reap all the health benefits of rose wines.
Some of the poplar sparkling wines produced in Napa valley or the wine country is Napa valley sparkling rose wines, True sparkling rose wine and the Brut rose wines. Napa valley sparkling rose wine has strawberry fragrance, rosy shade, acidic with tones of taste of grapes. The color is extremely pleasing and neck turner, further it has combined taste of grapefruit to roses, and it is made from Chardonnay grapes and Zinfandel grapes in the proportion of 80:20 respectively. I bet this is a wine with which you can have lots of fun with your friends as well as family and no second thoughts on the level of enjoyment that you will experience with this exquisite Napa valley drink.

It is a refreshing drink and finishes off nicely and dry. So think pink this vacation, tour to Napa valley and just book online through a fine wine country tour company.
