Discover Australia's first festival dedicated to rosé wines


Nowhere in Australia does pink better than Queensland's Gold Coast.

And it the Gold Coast which is to host Australia's first wine festival dedicated to rosé wines.

Rosé Coast co-producer and creative director Kristen Francis said the one-day festival at the Gold Coast’s Kurrawa Beach on May 1 was aiming to be the nation’s premier rosé celebration.

Producers from over 20 wine-growing regions across Australia have already locked into the Gold Coast showcase that highlights the growing popularity of rosé.

Francis, who is also founder and festival director of the Wine Island festival held on Clark Island in Sydney Harbour, said the Gold Coast was the obvious choice as the Australian location to exclusively host the event.

“Queensland is a big market for rosé, everywhere you look people are drinking pink. It is a drink that has been on the rise for the past five years and it’s just not going anywhere,” she  said.

“Rosé is best enjoyed outdoors in the sun and on the beach, it is not an indoor style drink so that just complements Queensland perfectly.”

Francis said the Gold Coast was synonymous with the pink drop as well as being famous for its beaches and maturity as an events city.

“We’ve got a background of putting on unique events in special places,” she said.

“Rosé and the Gold Coast go hand-in-hand. They are very complementary of one another, conjuring up sunshine, beachside, lifestyle and friends.

“This is where Rosé Coast is starting and this is where it will hopefully take place each year.”

Major Events Gold Coast chief Jan McCormick said the Gold Coast had already lured significant national and international events allowing the city to host a full program of more than 100 events for 2021.

“As an event which fits our destination so perfectly, I am delighted to welcome Rosé Coast Gold Coast to our city,” McCormick said.

Australian labels including Tulloch, Grant Burge, De Bortoli, La Prova, Pipers Brook, Soumah and Pizzini  will be joined by Sirromet, the only Queensland winery to feature at Rosé Coast.
