How Do You Get Pink Wine?

Pink (Rosé) wines are generally made by pressing red grapes in such a way that only a small portion of the colour compounds in the grape skins (most grapes have white or colourless flesh) are allowed to come into contact with the pressed juice. It is possible to make pink wine by blending white and red wine, but most winemakers don’t entertain that as an option.
