Front label of the 2021 Kirkland Signature Prosecco Rosé

Rosé + Prosecco = Summer Genius!

Fast Facts:

  • 2021 Kirkland Signature Prosecco Rosé, Veneto, Italy ($7.99 @Costco in California – Item #1521870)

We spill no small amount of “ink” talking about the “old world” rules and regs when it comes to wine and how they are generally more restrictive than in the US and the new world.  Think of it as Catholic School for wine.  Case in point: Prosecco only recently approved the use of “rosé.  2021 is the first year we’re seeing Prosecco Rosé on the shelves.

Lucky us!

Glass and bottle of the 2021 Kirkland Signature Prosecco Rosé
“Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”  Summer’s not over yet. Just ask the heat dome.


As my adult nieces impress upon me when I visit them in New England, there are two things that are hot and hip these days: Prosecco and rosé. The combination is genius.

Tasting Notes:

Opens with nice aromas of granny smith apple, Sprite, and strawberry plus some fresh sourdough bread and white flowers. In the mouth it is well-balanced, crisp and dry with cranberries and ripe strawberry notes. Finishes a bit short, but that just invites another sip!

Even though the DOC designation on this featured wine is a lesser one than the DOCG on the white Kirkland Signature Prosseco that we like so much, I dare say that we like this rosé a tad better at roughly the same great price well under $10. You can’t go wrong with either one.
