"Rosé wine has for many more of the red wine than the white wine, while it is prepared almost in the same way as white wine without barrel aging. The only difference comes into play when grinding the grapes: If you soak the red skins in the juice, a little pigment is extracted and the wine takes on color." - Max Allen (The Magic of Wine)
