Enjoy National Rosé Day on Saturday 8th June and throughout summer
National Rosé Day is observed annually on the second Saturday in June. Rosé is probably the oldest known type of wine, dating back as far as 600 BC. Rosé wines are generally made from red grapes and are very versatile wines that complement many types of food. Rosé is lighter than red wine and deeper than white wine. The pink colour of rosé wine depends on the time the grape skin stays in contact with the juice, also known as maceration. There are rosé wines that are semi-sparkling or sparkling, with different intensities of sweetness levels and dryness.
Our selection of Cellar Classics rosé wines come from growers with whom we have developed a tremendous rapport and have great respect for the quality of their wines. We would like to suggest enjoying rosé not only as an aperitif but also as an ideal opportunity to match with a range of food choices from cured or grilled meats to seafood main courses and even a dessert or cheese course. At our recent Winemakers Lunch at Le Talbooth, we recently matched Bruno Andreu's Grenache/Syrah rosé with a blackcurrant delice raising a few eyebrows but received very well indeed!
With our selection of Cellar Classics rosé wines, we are pleased to offer you these fine examples of rosé wine for you to enjoy on any occasion!
