Chef Carlos becomes a writer to express his passion for Spanish rosés.

The World’s Best Rosés

Spanish rosés (rosados) are exceptional. They are better, lighter, fresher, less weighty, and more elegant; full of wild strawberry, ripe watermelon, and mature berry flavors. They are like a cool shower on a hot day.

Most of the Spanish rosés are made from the tempranillo grape or garnacha. The best known come from Navarra and Rioja.

GRAPE VARIETIES 60% Garnacha tinta, 40% Tempranillo

Some of the dishes that partner especially well with Spanish rosés are Paella, Gambas al Ajillo (shrimp in garlic sauce) and Alcachofas con Jamón (artichoke hearts with cured ham and lots of garlic). But Spanish rosés are so good, crisp, and delicious that all you need is a hot summer day at Don Quijote outdoor dining.
