How To Pick Out The Perfect Rosé Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Photographed by Nicole Maroon.
How people feel about their zodiac sign can range from, "I 100% believe all of it, all of the time," to "Nope, not even a little bit." A lot of us fall in the middle, which can best be summed up as, "It's fun to think about, although it's probably not real, but in case it is, I do read my horoscope every week, and also I am a total Leo." In other words: we reserve the right to make up our minds after we find out of this is a good month for financial windfalls.
No matter how you feel about your sign, we have one horoscope-related activity you can enjoy no matter what: picking out a bottle of rosé. We've found ways that flavor, packaging, and even country of origin pair perfectly with your sign's unique traits. And even if you're not a believer, we've still hand-selected a delicious wine for you to enjoy all summer long.

Ahead, a perfect rosé for every sign, from Aries to Pisces — cheers!
1 of 12
Aries

Aries would feel right at home in Walla Walla Valley where K Vintners grows its rosé. The rocky terrain, perfect for rams, creates a minerality that makes it unique. Aries are also known for being trailblazers, meaning buying a rosé from Washington state, rather than France or California, won’t bother them — and may even help introduce the rest of their friends to that region’s growing wine offerings.

K Vintners 2016 Walla Walla Valley Rosé of Syrah, $21.99, available at K&L Wine Merchants.

Taurus

We tend to think of Taurus as the sign of hard workers who can plod through and get things done, but they can also be content taking their time and enjoying the little things without rushing to the next task or appointment. In that way, Taurus babies are purpose-built to enjoy long weekends, staycations, and picnics. Which makes Planeta’s light, easy-drinking rosé the ideal bottle to pair with cheese grazing and charcuterie in a field.

Planeta Rosé 2016, $12.44, available from Saratoga Wine Exchange.

Gemini

Known for their dual personalities, Gemini need a rosé that can keep up with their ever-changing moods and desires. Archer Roose wine was named for Theodore Roosevelt and the fictional Newland Archer, two New Yorkers who were equal parts sophisticated and boundary-pushing. Archer Roose’s rosé is designed to pair with any kind of adventure, whether it’s fine dining or roughing it in the wilderness, making it a wine that will keep up with Gemini’s ever-changing moods and desires.

Archer Roose Coteaux D'aix En Provence Rosé, $26.99, available at Schneider's Of Capitol Hill.

Cancer

Cancers are nesters who want to feel at home wherever they go — making canned wines a great way for them to feel the comforts of their kitchen on the go. After all, the symbol for cancer is the crab, an animal that takes its home with it. Cancers might not be able to do that literally, but they can always throw a can or two of wine in their bags as they run out the door. They might also appreciate that the can, much like their sign, is a perfect metaphor for a crunchy exterior hiding what’s inside.

Leo

Leos would naturally want a rosé as over-the-top and full of character as they are — making Summer In A Bottle, with its lush, explosive floral design perfect for the fiery sign. But, just like with Leos, there’s more than just showy good looks to this bottle. Crafted to evoke Hamptons summers and sunsets, this wine is a perfect ode to warm weather and would be the ideal addition to a Leo's soiree.

Virgo

Virgos, with their love of order and organization, make ideal environmentalists — wellness, from personal to global, falls under their sign. So, naturally, they are drawn to wines that nourish not only themselves but the earth. Palmer Vineyards, on Long Island, uses sustainable farming practices for all its wines. Detail-oriented Virgos will also love the Americana design on the bottle, making it pair well with red, white, and blue celebrations straight through to Labor Day.

Palmer Vineyards Rosé of Merlot 2016, $19.99, available at Palmer Vineyards.

Libra

The sign of the scales, Libras seek balance in their lives. Rosé wines, with their mix of white and red wine characteristics, are already a great fit. We especially recommend Cote des Roses, a balanced rosé from France that is equal parts fruity and dry. Avowed romantics, Libras will also appreciate the rose etched onto the bottom of the bottle.

Gerard Bertrand Cote des Roses Rosé 2016, $13.98, available at The Wine Club.

Scorpio

Mysterious and intense, Scorpios can surprise the rest of us. They’ll enjoy that Dark Horse wine takes its very name from the idea of a person or thing that comes out of nowhere to surprise you, something that Scorpio can do with aplomb. The name reflects the company’s approach, which is creating surprisingly good wines at low prices, but the dark horse ethos applies to its rosé as well: it tastes dry but surprises you with a burst of fruity flavors.

Dark Horse 2016 California Rosé, $13.99, available at Amazon.

Sagittarius

Natural-born adventurers, a sagittarius is curious and eager to try new things. Which is why some might shy away from a wine like Au-Delà Pinot Gris, while they are already grabbing a glass. Technically an orange wine, it was fermented with the grape skins for a short period of time to give it a pinkish hue. The wine maker refers to its methods as “méthode expérimentale,” music to a daring Sagitarrius ear. It results in a pink wine that nevertheless is a bit heavier than a typical rosé, making it great for bolder dishes like red meats.

Winc 2016 Au-Delà Pinot Gris, $22, available at Winc.

Capricorn

Capricorn don’t believe in shortcuts — which means they’ll understand and appreciate the painstaking detail that goes into creating champagne. More than just a region, creating the bubbly wine is a hands-on process that involves manually turning the bottle and a double fermentation process to make it, a method that can take a minimum of a year and a half. The perfectionist in them will also be happy to know that Veuve Clicquot rosé goes back to 1818, when Madame Clicquot herself added red wine to her yellow label bottle, and sparkling rosé history was made.

Veuve Clicquot Rosé, $55.99, available at City Wine Cellar.

Aquarius

Aquarians being air signs isn’t the only reason they would appreciate a wine called Whispering Angel. A light rosé that drinks like a white, Whispering Angel has a playful, floral quality that pairs well with their free spirited natures.

Whispering Angel Cotes de Provence Rosé, $16.99, available at Wine Made Easy.

Pisces

The final sign in the zodiac, Pisces are all about water. Minuty’s rose, grown in view of the Mediterranean, has a refreshing, light taste that’s begging to be enjoyed in full view of the ocean, with sand between your toes. Charming and romantic, Pisces will also enjoy the artful, almost seductive curve of Minuty’s bottle. And, just like Pisces, the bottle has hidden depths: its drinkability belies a high alcohol content of 13%, so sip with care.

Cheateau Minuty M de Minuty Cotes de Provence, $15.99, available at Gary's Wine.
