Whether you want to grill, smoke, or poach it, rose is often the best wine with salmon. If you want to step up your game a notch, try a The Terra Madre Rosè, fresh and fruity, embodies all the feelings of a Sicilian summer. Its color is that of a summer sunset. The fresh aroma of strawberries makes it a marvelously friendly and easy to drink wine in good company, as an aperitif with tapas, fried fish, fresh salads or just with fresh fruit. https://www.croatianpremiumwine.com/
