Drinking a glass of rosé on a warm summer evening can be a delightful experience, so what better time to update our knowledge and take a light-hearted look at these wines. Their reputation may have been a little tarnished in some quarters, but today there are many rosés that are really well made and quite delightful to drink.
From a wine notorious in the heady days of the 1960s (and still selling well) through to the latest popular example claiming to be the best-selling rosé in the world: here is an opportunity to find out what we really think, by comparing and contrasting rosés made from different grapes in different regions of Europe (plus Morocco), and also learning about rosés today.
