n the past year alone, rosé sales have more than doubled, raking in a whopping $258 million in sales, which, according to wine experts, can be attributed to rosé’s rising popularity amongst millennials and its growing cachet.

With the help of some wine experts, we’ve rounded up 15 amazing rosés around the world.
