“Rosé is THE quaffing wine to enjoy all summer long in the Hamptons,” shares Michael DeGennaro, owner of Southampton Wines at Water Mill, and KDHamptons contributing sommelier. “The rosé market has exploded on the East End in recent years with people clamoring for cases of Domain Ott and Wolffer Estate’s Summer in a Bottle, which sells out every season.

Here’s a few stand-outs of the season with my recommendations for how you might enjoy them all summer long.
