Episode 4: The Rosé Episode

Rosé wine has leaped into the limelight - and onto the patio table of wine lovers everywhere! Learn some of the secrets to why Rosé is so popular and compelling.

This podcast episode is a deep dive into the phenomenon that is Rosé wine. To my mind, if there was ever a wine segment that commanded respect (but was having some trouble getting it) it would be Rosé. It comes in different forms and styles, has been drunk for thousands of years, is perhaps the most enduring of wine styles ultimately and is freaking delicious. But somehow it struggles for respect.

Well, at least it used to. Wine drinkers today are consuming Rosé wine in unprecedented volumes. This podcast is about why they are drinking it, in what styles they are loving it and in what sorts of fun situations Rosé makes its way into our glasses. From Rome to Provence to the rest of the world, this is the party wine we are smashing back. But its also the serious food wine that some savour completely. Let’s go to the beach, to the BBQ and to the dinner table and learn about Rosé.

Oh, and by the way, we’ll talk quite a bit about how Rosé wine is made in case you are interested in that. Also, we are going to take an excursion into history - the history of how the Romans pursued their wine passion straight into Provence and then took the battle to the Gauls in bloody and relentless Roman fashion. I’d like to say it was all about the Rosé but that might be overstating the case….
