A spring fling with rosé wine in the Yarra Valley

Summer is just around the corner and to celebrate the change of seasons the Yarra Valley is celebrating the ongoing rosé revolution - the revolution hat just won't go away. 

Rosé is the perfect wine style for summer; fun, fresh and delicious, particularly in its pale, dry and juicy incarnation. 

The Yarra Valley produces some of Australia's best rosé wines and will be celebrating with  Rosé S’il Vous Plaît! from 2-6pm at the very cool Healesville Hotel on Saturday, October 19. 

The event is billed as a chance to "taste the best rosé in the Yarra Valley while chatting with the winemakers who produce it."

There will be live music, afternoon snacks and plenty of rosé to keep the party moving. 

Wineries involved include De Bortoli, Alkimi, Chandon Australia, Dominique Portet Wines, Giant Steps, Handpicked, Helen and Joey Estate, Six Acres Wines, Sutherland Estate, Tarrahill Vineyard, Thick As Thieves Wines and Thousand Candles.

The Detour Beer Co will also be on hand and snacks will include gazpacho with sesame toasted croutons and lobster, prawn and fennel rolls.



Tickets are $55 + GST and booking fee and include tastings from all participating wine labels. 

With Healesville only an hour’s drive from Melbourne, it sounds like the perfect excuse for a spring fling in the Yarra Valley. In fact, I'm wondering where my invitation is.
