White wine is supposed to take out red wine stains. I had red wine stains on white cotton capris, and tried several things. White wine was one of them. I can't tell you what was the best, but white wine is certainly one of the places to start. Saturate the rose/red wine with the white wine, and work it into the stain. Blot with paper towels. On my capris, I also used bleach, but you can not do that on your carpet. Bleach will remove all the color. Peroxide may work too, if the white wine doesn't do the trick.
