"Pink may be pretty, but as Rosé All Day demonstrates, pink wine is anything but fluff stuff. Katherine Cole dives deep into the realm of rosé, and proves that rosé can be serious wine that still doesn’t take itself too seriously." Paul Clarke, executive editor of Imbibe and author of The Cocktail Chronicles
"When it comes to wine, anything Katherine Cole writes is always essential reading — and this fun, accessible, informative book is no exception. Consider this your guide to everything rosé." Jennifer Fiedler, author of The Essential Bar Book and contributing editor at Wine Spectator
"Katherine Cole proves that there is so much more to our insatiable thirst for pink wine than picnics and Hamptons ragers. Beautifully designed, witty, and intelligent, this as much a relevant guide to the world’s best rosés as it is a unique window into pop wine culture — and history. Rosé All Day is the rare wine book that finds the elusive balance between information and entertainment." Talia Baiocchi, editor-in-chief of Punch and author of Sherry and Spritz
