Instant Pot Rosé Risotto and 9 other Rosé Recipes

Instant Pot Rosé Risotto and 9 other Rosé Recipes ~ it’s all about the wonderful world of Rosé today, with lots of Valentine worthy inspiration, including a unique rosé wine infused risotto that takes just 6 minutes in your Instant Pot!

A rosé wine infused risotto that takes just 6 minutes in your Instant Pot!

There was a time when you’d be teased mercilessly for drinking Rosé, but not anymore. It’s cool now, and I’m glad, because I’ve always been a fan. Rosé wine is actually a red wine, made from red grapes. It’s that beautiful blush pink color because the winemakers only allow the skins to macerate in the juice for a short period. Rosé makes a refreshing cocktail, but it’s a versatile ingredient in other recipes, too. I use it as the base for this unusual rosé risotto.

TIP: Serve this risotto as a side dish rather than a main course ~ it pairs perfectly with any kind of meaty dish like steak, roast beef, pork tenderloin, or lamb. It’s simple and so pretty.

I just got an Instant Pot last week and I’m going crazy with it, so fair warning ~ I’m going to pepper you with Instant Pot recipes in the coming weeks. If you’re not familiar with it, the Instant Pot is a modern version of a classic pressure cooker, updated with lots of convenient features, like the ability to brown food right in the pot. It can be used as a rice cooker, a yogurt maker, and a slow cooker, among other things. Foods that traditionally take many hours to cook are done in a fraction of the time. (I think the Instant Pot is worth it for the risotto alone!)

TIP: This risotto recipe is perfect for the Instant Pot because, through the magic of pressure cooking, you only need 2 cups of wine for one cup of arborio rice. A traditional stove-top recipe would require 6 or more cups of liquid, and that would throw off the flavor balance. Look for a dry Rosé for this dish ~ the rice will absorb the wine as it cooks and the flavor will be concentrated, so you don’t want anything overly sweet.

Safety Note: This recipe is formulated for the Instant Pot. Please don’t try this with stove top pressure cookers as I haven’t tested it on other models. Always follow all safety instructions in your manual, and follow the recipe instructions carefully.

Instant Pot Rosé Risotto

Author Sue Moran


  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large shallot minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 cup arborio rice
  • 2 cups dry Rosé wine
  • 3-4 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • thyme leaves or edible flowers for garnish


  • Add the olive oil to your Instant Pot and press the saute button,. Saute the shallot and garlic for a few minutes. Add the rice and stir for another minute.
  • Add the wine and stir to combine. Close and lock the lid, and set the steam release handle to 'sealing'. Select 'Pressure Cook' (or 'manual') and cook on high for 6 minutes.
  • When the risotto is cooked, use the quick release method to depressurize the pot. Once the pressure has released, open the lid and stir in the cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve with a scattering of fresh thyme, and more grated cheese, if desired.
The nutritional information for recipes on this site is provided as a courtesy and although tries to provide accurate nutritional information, these figures are only estimates.

Make it your own ~

    • Experiment with other types of wine for this risotto. A nice Chardonnay or Malbec sounds great to me. Again, look for something dry.
    • For an extra dose of luxury, stir a few spoonfuls of mascarpone cheese into the finished risotto. Did you know you can MAKE YOUR OWN MASCARPONE CHEESE?

    I’ve used a regular pressure cooker for years and have a 6 qt. and recently bought an 8 qt. Insta-Pot which I have been using for the last two months. I love the Insta-Pot. I’ve made several soups, BBQ pork ribs, beef stew, a Meyer Lime cheese cake, and spaghetti sauce. I’m happy you now have one because I love your recipes. Looking to trying yours.

    I have an Instant Pot and I like it, but I’m still not sure. I am going to try your rose` wine risotto for Valentine’s Day. It seems perfect for a 1st course! By the way, I made your rose` wine red pepper jelly for an appetizer on New Year’s Eve, to spoon over goat cheese. People loved it and could not believe I made it and didn’t buy it! It’s a great recipe! Thank you for that and your beautiful and enticing photography. I am always excited to open your emails! Not too much pressure, right??

    I was looking at recipes using an Insta Pot because I don’t have one yet. I’m still trying to decide if I want one. This recipe is definitely swaying me to seeing the benefit of owning one! Also, love the idea of using Rose! I always use white wine but this change adds a fun twist!

      Susan, you want one. Not kidding. I am planning to weed out my cupboards today, I’m getting rid of my slow cooker and 2 yogurt makers 🙂

    I’m way behind on the IP trend – I have one sitting in my garage and never figured out how to use it! You should write a how-to guide for me – please! And thank heavens Rose is back in good favor again – it’s such a terrific wine and you’re right, it was once thought of as a little low-class cheaper wine – such a shame!!! This risotto sounds fantastic!

      That’s a great idea, Tricia, because I was a little intimidated when I first got it, too ! I’m not a booklet reader, I like to dive right in. I think I will write up a little guide and add it to these recipes, thanks!
