The latest trendy item to add to your table is a stylish, sophisticated bottle of Rosé. For most millennial wine drinkers, pink wine meant “tannie” wine. How did this once misunderstood and under-appreciated wine suddenly become so trendy?
The Sophistication of the Colour Pink
Pink used to mean sweet, girly and blushingly innocent. Today, pink has lost its fluff, and has grown up to become a shade of elegance. Over the past few years, the colour pink has been used by designers throughout various disciplines.
Besides its stylish appearance, Rosé is a very versatile wine. It pairs well with almost anything – seafood, charcuterie, chicken, root vegetables, various risotto’s and cheese. Making it the perfect choice for any occasion.
Not Just Another Blasé Pink Drink
Rosé has gained international popularity amongst wine drinkers and experts in wine tasting. One of our favourites, Boschendal Rose Garden Rosé was awarded 94 points and Platinum Tier, the highest level of the US San Diego Wine Challenge Competition.

3 Things Everyone Needs To Know About Rosé:
Rosé is not ‘watered down’ red wine – rosés are made from red grapes but not macerated for as long on the skins so the juice doesn’t take as much of the colour.
Rosé is a perfect match for food – oysters and rosés pair especially well.
Pink wine is not just for girls – more men than ever are enjoying rosé because they love the taste.
How To Serve Rosé:
Instead of using your standard wine glasses, make a statement at your next dinner party with the use of interesting glassware. We love these beautiful glass sets from Urban Outfitters.
