Celebrating International Rosé Day #RoséAllDay June 22nd, 2018

Join the Rosé revolution!

Episode 70

Coming up on the show today, we celebrate International Rosé Day! Yes, as of a couple of years ago Rosé was awarded  its very own day.  In fact now there are three 3 International Rosé Days!!! It seems wine lovers around the world are increasingly seeing the world through rosé-tinted glasses and embracing #RoséAllDay with consumption skyrocketing in popularity.  

Gone are the days of super sweet and sappy roses. Now when you think pink, think crisp, dry with a zippy acidity, well made, with a range of seductive aromas. Including the likes of red berries,  peach, citrus, violet, melon, hibiscus and more depending on where it’s made.

Most wine regions around the world are now making rosé wine.

For a second perspective on rosés made in France we turn our attention to the Rhone Valley and more specifically the appellation of  Ventoux. In 1990, UNESCO listed the Ventoux wine as a Biosphere Reserve. The Ventoux vineyards actually developed and expanded during the Avignon papacy which was 1309 -1376 the Ventoux vineyards actually developed and expanded.  The kings of France drank these wines at their tables over the centuries.
