The lovely Archie @wineawaytheday asked us to curate a case of rosé because she is running social media campaign for Great British Rosé Week. Great British Rosé has that wonderful balance of gluggability and outstanding quality. We jumped at the chance to get involved.
For a wine that is the epitome of summer in a glass, it has to be Great British rosé. Just add sunshine and blue skies and you have the recipe for a perfect British summers afternoon. Here are some of our favourites for Great British Rosé Week…
