I think more and more folks are drinking wine for refreshment rather than for richness and opulence.

Best place for outdoor rosé: Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall

Old Fourth Ward
Canned rosé is stocked at Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall on the BeltLine, and is best enjoyed in its rustic indoors environs, on the patio, or out on the expansive outdoor space.

Best selection of rosé: 3 Parks Wine Shop

Glenwood Park
The brilliant minds behind 3 Parks Wine Shop offer growler options that include rosé, plus a seasonal rosé-specific wine club during May, June, July, and August where, for $80 a month, you’ll receive six assorted bottles of wine hailing from regions all around the world.

Best spot for remixed rosé: Minero

Old Fourth Ward
Over at Ponce City Market, Minero has a signature sangria that’s a mixture of rosé, citrus, and cava -- a perfect complement to its charcoaled chicken tacos.

Best place to get rosé by the bottle: Barcelona Wine Bar

Inman Park
Head to this Spanish-inspired tapas spot to split a bottle (and half-off bottles on Monday). It's also served by the glass.

Best place to get rosé on tap: Venkman's

Old Fourth Ward
Venue-restaurant hybrid Venkman’s has rosé on tap, and it pairs quite well with the patio space and barbecue mussels, should you be into that.

Best spot for frosé: The Luminary

Inman Park
Frozen rosé (aka frosé) can be found at Krog Street Market’s French brasserie The Luminary (also likely at a summer dinner party thrown by your incredibly savvy and sophisticated friend).

Best place to get rosé in gummy form: Sugarfina

Buckhead
This Lenox Square candy shop found such success with its signature “Rosé All Day” gummy bears that it not only sold out within two hours of launching, but there’s a waiting list that’s already crept into the thousands. Thousands, people. This shit is getting real.
