Can’t find a good dry rosé

I'm looking for a dry rosé wine that's available in most grocery stores but I'm having a hard time. All the suggestions I find online are either impossible to find or too expensive to do much experimenting with (I don't want to spend 30 bucks on a bottle of wine that I may end up hating…)

The only one I've found so far that I really liked was Black Box Rosé but my grocery only sells it in 500ml boxes.

I tried one from Beringer yesterday and it tasted like alcoholic koolaid. It was not at all dry – despite what the bottle said.

TLDR: Does anyone have any suggestions for a crisp and dry rosé wine available at most grocery stores for 5-15 bucks a bottle?

For what it's worth, I live in Ohio and usually shop at Kroger.

Looking to Apply as Harvest Intern via /r/wine

Looking to Apply as Harvest Intern

Hi all! I'm completely new to the wine industry with zero experience or formal education (in wine) but looking to apply to positions as a Harvest Intern/ Cellar & Vineyard Assistant in Virginia. I was wondering, for those of you who work in the industry, is there anything you're looking for when it comes to cover letters or first contact emails that would give me an edge despite my lack of actual experience? I'm currently working to teach myself as much basic knowledge as I can about the harvest and wine making process and I'm willing to work as many hard, gross jobs as I have to in order to get a foot in the door. Any advice on applying would be incredibly helpful. Thanks!

Suggestion wine – survive storage at least 16 years via /r/wine

Suggestion wine – survive storage at least 16 years

Hi,

I bought 6 bottles of Burgundy wine (Premier & Grand Cru) a couple of years back to store until my son is 18 years old and allowed to drink (or sell them if he likes). That was back in 2012.

Now I've got a second son, and I want to do the same for him (born 2015). Any suggestions to Burgundy (or other) wines that are supposed to be okay, and likely to be drinkable in 16 years time given proper storage?

I live in Norway, it's fairly easy to place orders (on wines currently not in their selection) at the state-run wine and liquor outlets. Here's the webpage for the vinmonopolet.

Any help is appreciated. I.e. 3 different kinds in mid to mid-high ($150?) cost range.

How does Louis Jadot compare to other Côte d’Or wines in quality and (I guess) respect? via /r/wine

How does Louis Jadot compare to other Côte d’Or wines in quality and (I guess) respect?

I'm 21 and learning and can't afford anything fancy. But I've had Louis Jadot Beaujolais and Burgandies (and just learned it's also in the Cote d'Or) and I thought they were pretty good. Am I getting an accurate representation of general taste from that region? Or do I have to save up for something more substantial? Or is it a joke wine riding on its location? I assume it's probably just a Bourgogne too.

Looking for some tips on how to keep wine from spoiling at outdoor tasting events in hot weather. via /r/wine

Looking for some tips on how to keep wine from spoiling at outdoor tasting events in hot weather.

We just started selling our wines at our local farmers market and this weekend it's supposed to get up to 98f. The market ends at 1:30pm so most of it won't be in the heat of the day, but I'm still concerned about spoilage. Bringing actual refrigeration is not really an option at this point. The only thing I can think of are coolers, or only partially filling cases and placing ice packs inside them, and maybe covering with a tarp or some such. What do people usually do in this kind of situation?
