What Is Great British Rosé Week?

Great British Rosé Week returns for its 4th year May 6th-12th 2024.  This annual week long celebration promotes the excellence of English vineyards and wine producers.

English Rosé sales are steadily rising. This is partly fueled by a growing interest in locally produced wines and a desire for lighter fresher styles. Accordingly more and more winemakers are adding English Rosé to their portfolio.

Our English Rosé Tasting takes you on a tasting road trip across 6 counties and is one of the highlights of the week. It’s GBRW founders Archie and Allie’s first hosted tasting and a great opportunity to meet the women behind the movement.

Forget The South Of France …. Here Comes The South Of England

Provence in the South of France put Rosé on the map. Pale in colour with delicate berry and grapefruit flavours and a crisp minerality it’s the benchmark of drinking pink.

The French make Provence Rosé from Grenache grapes, but in England, it’s not hot enough to grow these grapes. As such, English Rosé comes from Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and/or a blend of other varieties like Seyval Blanc. Although crisp and pale in colour, English Rosés, especially those from the Pinots tend to have a lush mouth feel with notes of cherry, strawberry and rhubarb.

We believe England is the most exciting cool climate region in the world. Yet 99% of the wine we drink is imported.  Discover English Rosé and help grow the 1%.

See you at the tasting on 8th May?
