Rose Revolution 2012

How can you become a revolutionary in just one day? Get along to a Rosé Revolution launch event on Wednesday 14 November! 

Yes, the revolution is here my friends. The Rosé Revolution that is. A celebration of the dry, textural types of Rose that are so popular throughout Europe. And (we agree) need to be embraced more here in Australia.

This annual celebration of Rosé – which goes throughout the summer months – officially kicks off again on Wednesday 14 November with events all around Australia.

There will be tastings from over 50 participating producers of fabulous Rosé such as De Bortoli Wines, Dominique Portet, Logan Wines, Plantagenet, Shelmerdine, TarraWarra, Innocent Bystander, Rogers & Rufus and Geoff Merrill.

This year, the Rosé Revolution ‘Real Men Drink Pink’ campaign gives the go-ahead for those with a Y-Chromosome to enjoy a glass of pink stuff with pride.

So doll up in your best pink number, and head out to one of these fabulous Rosé Revolution 2012 launch events – all taking place on Wednesday 14 November.
