This wine is only available at Olive Garden restaurants. I am trying to contact Olive Garden to see if it is even remotely possible to obtain this wine outside of the restaurants. Anything I hear back will be posted here.

I just went to the Olive Garden tonight and tried Principato Rosato for the first time. It was wonderful! They told us at the restaurant that it was hard to find. I fully intend on ordering from someone because that is the best wine I have tasted in quite awhile. ****

OG Update: I got a super secret phone number from Olive Garden to call about wine matters. I'll try it today, but I imagine the answer is going to be something like "only sold in stores". I hope I'm wrong.

I'd be interested to know how you made out with that phone number.

I haven't called that number yet, but I did finally get out to an Olive Garden to try the wine.

It was decent. Very drinkable. I understand why a lot of folks would like this. Though it tasted like the kind of wine you "graduate from" as your wine palate. Very similar taste to an Arbor Mist wine.

That may sound snobby, which is something I try to avoid. I guess I'm just trying to say that this wine was not as complex as some of the stuff I like now as opposed to when I started drinking. I would say though that it went very well with the salad and bread sticks and my chicken alfredo pizza. Also, at $22 for a magnum (we only got a couple glasses) it's pretty affordable too. I would definitely order it again next time I go to Olive Garden.

Some people are interested in whether they can get this wine at home. Sadly, the answer is no. Although if you go to the restaurant you can take one bottle home with you... as long as it is opened at the restaurant first. This might be a PA thing (I'll check when I call that #). So you can take some home, and it's a magnum. But then the bottle has to be opened first, so you better have one of those handy air-sucker-outer thingies ready when you get home.

Does anyone know where I can buy this wine? The link on this site will not allow be to buy it!

I am a relatively new wine drinker. I really liked this wine, but don't have an Olive Garden close to my house. Does anyone have any suggestions of what would be similar in taste?

It is now available at State Liquor Stores by special order. In NH you can get a case of 6 for $54 !

Folks also might be interested in Beringer's White Zinfandel, which is comparable in taste, price, and quality. Check it out here:

EVERYONE - You Will be thrilled to know that in fact this wine can be purchased outsied of Olive Garden. Go to www.popswine.com - the store it self is located in New York, but they have a great website with 100's of wines including this Principato Rosata and they'll ship to using UPS!!! It's 11.99 per 1.5L or you can get 6 bottles for $61.98 (freight included).

ENJOY!!

According to my local liquor store we can not purchase this wine in New Jersey.

Posted by Rose on December 4th, 2007 at 7:24pm | report comment

I found this (Dec. 2007) at a State Store in PA and bought it because I liked the color and shape of the bottle. I really didn't know what to expect with it, but after the first taste I had to thank my stars. It's just a really well-made table wine with a refreshing flavor and light bouquet, fruity enough to be interesting, and smooth as silk. There is no "winey" aftertaste, and it is friendly enough with food. It's just a tasty, gentle, friendly wine. I'm delighted to add it to my "cellar".

I purchased this at a local liquor store for Thanksgiving as a "second" wine. It turned out to be the favorite. My brother in law was floored when he found out it was only $9.99 for 1.5l.

I agree, this is one of the best rosť wines I have tasted. In North Carolina I have purchased the wine at Olive Garden and it did NOT have to be opened. They even included a really nice cardboard container to carry it in. It was $28.

If you live in NH, this wine can be purchased by the case from the state liquor stores. The sku is 32519, and the cost here is $62.00 per case of 6 bottles. At our local Olive Garden, a bottle ( which must be opened here), costs $33.00. Hope this helps someone!

Angels' Share Wine Shop in Modesto, CA sells the Principato Rosso which is a red wine blend. www.aswineshop.com

Posted by Laura on March 22nd, 2008 at 9:51am | report comment

Found a few more places selling this.

MarketView Liquor (online):

Good Spirits (online):

And I noticed that there were quite a few in the PA Wine and Spirits system. Just go to your local W&S store and ask someone to look it up for you. They should be able to give you a list of the closest stores with inventory.

Anyone know how many calories in a glass?

Posted by Rosemary on May 9th, 2008 at 2:23am | report comment

Rosemary, wine producers aren't required to disclose how many Calories per serving there are in their wines.

However, the numbers are fairly typical across each type of wine.

This website (http://www.annecollins.com/calories/calories-wine.htm) says that Rose has about 95 Calories per 4oz serving.

The main source of Calories in wine will be the sugar. So know that a sweeter wine (which Principato Rosato is) will have a bit more than average. Dryer wines will have a bit less.

I fell in love with this wine in billings montana where a waitress at olive garden told me that OSCO had the exclusive selling rights. I bought it there all the time but now that ive moved im far away from osco but just recently found it on a website http://marketviewliquor.com
It's $8 from the website and between $7 to $8 at osco - watch for sales i used to pick up several bottles very cheap at osco!!!

Posted by juliamitchel on August 4th, 2008 at 7:02pm | report comment

Julia, OSCO ??? Where and what kind of store is this? I am from NC and have had a very hard time finding this wine other than Olive Garden. I have searched and searched and finally found that Michael at
Pop's Wines & Spirits
256 Long Beach Road
Island Park, New York 11558

516.431.0025
516.432.2648, Fax

sells it. I bought a case including s/h for $57.75 s/h $12.00. I was thrilled. He was very helpful and will be my supplier from now on. Unless this OSCO's place is close by. Thanks to Kim Ann Wall above, she has made me a happy lady. My case should be here in 3 days.

Far Superior to anything in its category! First discovered it at Olive Garden. Would like to purchase it elsewhere!

You can purchase it at any NH State Liquor Store for 10.99! A deal compare to the 30 bucks at the OG.

You can buy this excellent wine online from a company called House Of Bacchus Wine & Spirits. Look it up online. It is a legit company that I have purchased from myself. The customer service is excellent and the wine is very economical. They are located in NY and their phone # is 866.901.3334. Thanks & enjoy!

Actually, I work at a liquor store...TA DA...We sell it!!! Sumter, SC. But I have heard that it is extremely hard to find outside of The Olive Garden. I haven't tried it, but I actually am taking a bottle home tonight. I've heard so much about it. I hope it lives up to its' hype!!!

Posted by Melinda on September 18th, 2009 at 6:46pm | report comment

One night when I was dining at Olive Garden, the kind server let me sample all three of their varietals. My preference rank is the white, red and then the rosato. The rosato was a little too sweet for me. It drinks more like a white zinfindel than a true rose. However, I would say that these are very good values for the prices and are now available across the country. Macaroni Grill also distributes their house wines. We have both available at Campbell Station Wine & Spirits in Farragut (Knox County) TN.

I purchased this wine when i was visitng Philly it was 9.99 a bottle otherwise i have had no luck at locating this wine in the chicagoland area and in attempting to order out of state is a challenge due to delivery choices.

The wine has a decent taste that is the topper to a very mellow evening.

Posted by Kevin on March 2nd, 2011 at 10:34am | report comment

I work at Olive Garden and the only way to get our Principato wines is to drink a glass and take the bottle home already opened. There is similar wines out there but the specific blend we have from what the restaurant tells us isn't anywhere else. I was told while going threw serving training the Salute sticker is proof it's a Olive Garden only blend. Ahh but you never know.

Posted by Trevor on July 19th, 2011 at 5:06am | report comment

You can buy it online from market view liquor. I usually get three cases at a time.
