WHAT: Banfi Centine Rosé 2006 Rating: NNN
WHERE: Tuscany, Italy
WHY: TIFF equals celebrities, and celebrities equal beautiful, and no wine is more beautiful than pink wine. With its classic hints of strawberry and clean, dry finish, this would be perfect for a late summer vegetarian feast. But the main thing is it's pink, like a movie star's lips blowing kisses at the cordoned masses.
PRICE: 750 ml/$14.95
AVAILABILITY: At selected Vintages outlets as of September 1 (product #30155)
WHAT: Codorníu Brut Cava Pinot Noir Rosé Rating: NNN
WHERE: Penedès, Spain
WHY: What could be more TIFF than pink bubbly? Not everyone can afford champers, especially if it might get confiscated on the way into the theatre, so consider this rosé Cava with its bright citrus qualities. I can't think a better pick-me-up after a hard night of celeb-chasing.
PRICE: 750 ml/$16.95
AVAILABILITY: At selected Vintages outlets as September 1 (product #665372)

WHAT: Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Champagne, France
WHY: Can you imagine a glass of pink champagne in the hands of a Film Fest actor or actress? Ohmygod! But they'd have to be A-list to overshadow this beautiful 100 per cent Pinot Noir brut with its alluring, supple softness. "Laurent Perrier! Over here! Maybe just a wave. Please!"
PRICE: 750 ml/$89.95
