Pop's has over 80 Rose's in stock all year round. Being close to the beach, locals getting a whiff of warmth (or sitting next to a heat lamp) drink Rose all year round.

Here's my 6 favorite 2016 Rose's to relax with this Summer!

Great wine doesn't have to cost a lot!

Oregon Rose in a Can!"Yes, Cans are back... Big time. What better way to drink Rose on the Beach than to grab a bunch of 2016 Underwood Rose from Oregon!

Drinkable, unpretentious and travel-ready, this is the perfect wine for action lounging, such as poolside shindigs, outdoor music festivals, backyard BBQ's with friends or anywhere that calls for serious lounging. It's set to become your favorite spring and summer staple.

With notes of strawberry, watermelon, and peach, this is a supremely drinkable beverage!"

$10+ for REAL Provence Rose!!!"Here's my VALUE Pick of the year, the 2016 Perle Cotes de Provence Rose is simply stunning for the price. Tasted this twice in Bordeaux in April and finished the bottle BOTH times. 40% Cinsault, 30% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Carignan

Côtes de Provence is located in the idyllic south-east of France and produces a world renowned style of Rosé that is mimicked by winemakers across the globe.

Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah grapes are grown in some of the most spectacular, sundrenched and gently undulating French terrain. The wine is pale and savoury, with lifted red cherry, musk, ruby grapefruit and floral blossom notes. A touch of spice compliments the fruit on a seamless palate.

Don't miss out on this exceptional wine."

Oh, La, La!!
"Come on, you can't resist saying it! And you won't be able to resist drinking this fantastic 2016 French Rose.

Sexy, Hip, Funky, Gorgeous.

Explosive aromas jump from the glass, crisp fresh strawberries, a touch of herbs, and a long serious after taste... Love it! 12% Alcohol for those seeking a not too powerful elixir - I plan to keep this on ice all Summer."

Southern French Lafage!
"Domaine Lafage makes some of the best wines in France’s Roussillon region and their 2016 Rose is unbelievable!

A blend of organically cultivated Grenache Gris (80+ year old vines) and Mourvedre, this 2016 Rose is literally "springtime" in a bottle. Ripe and silky, yet elegant and energetic, it tastes even better than the bottle looks.

Yes, that is one of the best-looking bottles of wine we stock!

Laced with aromas and flavors of red berries (think strawberry, cherry, and raspberry) with hints of floral infused white peach, the wine is decidedly dry yet silky smooth."

Italian Rose!
"The 2016 Malabaila Piedmont Rose is my favorite Italian Rose in 2016.

What I love about this Rose - It has an intense crispness that over delivers with razor thin precision. Fresh citrus, peach with rose petals and strawberries in a very light energetic taste. This will likely drink well for a few Summer seasons, but it is so great now, why wait?!?!"

The BEST Domestic Rose of 2016 is definitely Red Car!
"The 2016 Red Car Rose of Pinot Noir is a rarity in California: Single vineyard designated from a site in the cool climate West Sonoma Coast that is organically certified and bio-dynamically farmed.

A Rose with finesse and elegance with the look of a pale Vin Gris and an aromatic profile of rose petals and soft cherries. Produced by whole cluster pressing Pinot Noir then barrel fermenting it in 100% neutral oak. Likely to get 93 Points when ratings come out in July.

The real deal is Red Car for full flavored California Pinot Noir Rose!"
