Celebrating International Rosé day on June 23
International Rosé Day celebrates this popular pink-hued wine and marks the perfect occasion to savour a glass and indulge in its delicate flavors and enchanting aromas.
Rosé wine in Australia has experienced a remarkable surge in popularity with our warm climate and diverse wine regions creating a wide array of Rosé styles that showcase our winemaking expertise. From the sun-kissed vineyards of Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale to the cool-climate regions of Adelaide Hills and Tasmania, Australian winemakers have perfected the art of crafting Rosé wines. Whether it's a crisp and zesty Rosé made from Shiraz or a delicate and floral drop from Grenache or Pinot Noir, Australian Rosé wines offer a delightful balance of fruity notes, a touch of spice, and a bright acidity.
Here are some of our Ultimate Wineries who truly embrace and excel in the art of crafting Rosé:

In the Hunter Valley, Brokenwood's Rosato wine (Rosato is Italian for Rosé) is predominantly a blend of the Sangiovese and Nebbiolo varieties and stylistically it is also European in that wine has fruit sweetness but a dry finish. Taste the Rosato for yourself at Brokenwood's Cellar Door or head to the Cru Bar + Pantry and enjoy a glass from the WineEmotion dispenser which serves rare wines not ordinarily available for tasting at the Cellar Door.
Seppeltsfield's Grenache Rosé is a vibrant and refreshing wine sourced from plantings of Grenache on the Western Ridge of the Barossa Valley. This Rosé showcases the unique terroir and meticulous craftsmanship of Seppeltsfield. Head to the Cellar Door, located in the redeveloped 1900 Seppelt Bottling Hall, for an intimate wine tasting experience. The Seppeltsfield estate is also home to a vibrant Barossa community of wine, food, art and beauty, FINO Restaurant, JamFactory Contemporary Art & Design studios and Vasse Virgin Skin care.
