The Rosé Renaissance

June 23, 2022

International Rosé Day – Friday 24th June

Rosé is one of the biggest success stories in wine over the last decade, and for good reason – it’s lusciously vibrant and easy to drink.

This once underrated blush drop dates back to ancient Greece where is was considered civilised to dilute wine. During harvest, workers would crush red and white grapes together with their feet, holding onto suspended ropes for balance.

In the sixth century BC grape vines from Greece were brought to Marseille in southern France by the wandering Phocaeans. The wines they produced were, again, field blends of white and red grapes. Naturally light in colour, these pleasant pink wines soon were talked around the Mediterranean.

When the Romans arrived in Provence, they had already heard all about the ‘pink’ wines of Massalia; using their trade networks they made it the drink of choice throughout the Mediterranean. Even today, the south of France is still considered the epicentre of Rosé.

Australia is producing exceptional Rosé and our just released 2021 Hill Rosé is a standout! Sourced from the cool climate vineyards of the Adelaide region. A dry and fresh style exhibiting cherry and strawberry fruits with a long savoury finish.

If you haven’t had a Rosé in a decade or two it might be time to find out why there has been a Rosé renaissance!

    ​Red wine is synonymous with winter. Nothing quite beats a glass of red in front of a roaring open fire on a chilly winter evening.

    When deciding which red wine to drink this winter, think full bodied wines like Cabernet, Shiraz and Merlot, wines that are spicy, bold, layered and generous.
