Times, they are a changing in the world of rosé wine. The image of it being a young persons pre-drink of choice before going out on a Saturday night bender where it’s easy to down and just as easy to find it coming back up again, may well be a thing of the past, maybe it’s wishful thinking but what I do know is there is much more quality rosé wine around now to combat the Factory concocted sweet pink fruit juice you can still see around.

Try it summer or winter, you won’t be disappointed !
