National Rosé Day in June always seems to us like the unofficial start of summer. Longer days, warmer evenings, picnics in the park and afternoons around the pool – all things we’d rather be doing instead of laboring away in the kitchen. Instead, this delicious recipe for Balsamic Watermelon Feta Salad comes together quickly and pairs beautifully with rosé, like Mitchella Winery’s 2022 Reluctant.
The wine, a refreshing blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvèdre, has bright aromatic notes of fresh strawberry and geranium. With a slightly dry acidity, it has hints of guava, mango, and watermelon.
