OK, so we admit the obsession with rosé wines might be a little trendy. But here’s the thing: We don’t mind. It’s refreshing, it’s delicious, and it looks oh-so pretty in photos. Clearly, we’re not alone in this sentiment, because there are plenty of great spots to sip rosé in Naples this summer—with great special pricing, too. Total win-win (or wine-win?)
365 Fifth Ave S., Naples
Reservations: (239) 315-4019
The French carries through on the “rosé all day” promise. Their frosé—that’s frozen rosé—is made with Notorious Pink rosé, housemade rose syrup and local citrus, and we can confirm that it’s everything you’d hope it would be: frosty, light and totally drinkable (so, um, pace yourself).
THE BAY HOUSE
799 Walkerbilt Drive, Naples
Reservations: (239) 591-3837
We love hanging out at The Bay House—it’s so cozy, and the views of the Cocohatchee River can’t be beat—but they also have a great selection of rosés by the glass and by the bottle.
1205 Third St. S., Naples
Reservations: (239) 659-0007
For the next level of rosé enjoyment, grab a seat at the outdoor bar in The Continental‘s picturesque courtyard along Third Street South, and try one of the expertly made craft cocktails they’re known for. PS, It’s a Champagne Cocktail features Tattersall gin, grapefruit crema, cassis and sparkling rosé—and PS, it’s really good.
BAYSIDE SEAFOOD GRILL & BAR
4270 Gulf Shore Blvd. N., Naples (The Village Shops on Venetian Bay)
Reservations: (239) 649-5552
We can think of few better spots to sip a glass of rosé than on the Upper Deck at Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar. Nab a seat at the breezy, shaded bar, and take in the sweeping views of Venetian Bay.
TONY’S OFF THIRD
1300 Third St. S., Naples
Of course, there are times when a glass of wine on the couch or a beach towel can’t be beat. For that, stock up on bottles of the good stuff at Tony’s Off Third, an award-winning wine boutique with the best selection of rosés by the bottle that we’ve found in Naples.
THE HAMPTON SOCIAL
9114 Strada Place, Naples (Mercato)
Reservations: (239) 202-2038
Rosé is what The Hampton Social is known for, so we’d be remiss to leave them off the list. We love this Mercato hotspot for its happy hour Monday through Friday, 3-6 p.m., when you can get half-priced pizzas and glasses of their ever-changing rosé of the day. (And to take a picture under the ubiquitous “rosé all day” neon sign.)
