Rosé Wine

There is a common misconception in this country that rosé wines should only be drunk in the clement months when the sun shines. Sure, we have some examples of the classic Provence style; pale, crisp, undeniably delicious on a summer’s day. But that’s to ignore the many other styles of wine in this category, such as the deeply-coloured rosatos to be found all over Italy, made by producers like Lamoresca in Sicily and Farnea in the Veneto. Some of the wines blur the lines between a pink wine and a red wine so light and fresh it is best served chilled. The fun is in finding out just what it is. Organic, biodynamic and natural rosé in its many multi-toned expressions.
