International Rosé Day

Celebrate International Rosé Day on June 28th with Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia, and raise a toast to this beloved pink wine. 

Once dismissed in Australia for their sweet, candy-coloured profiles, Rosé wines have evolved into serious contenders, with winemakers producing a wide range of styles from pale and crisp to complex and textural. Popular grape varieties like Grenache, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Sangiovese, and Nebbiolo contribute to the diverse flavours and styles available across many Australian regions. While the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Western Australia, Yarra Valley, and Adelaide Hills are renowned for their excellent Rosé wines, many other Australian wine regions also produce outstanding Rosé, showcasing a variety of styles from vibrant and sweet to brisk and dry.

Here are some of our Ultimate Wineries who excel in the craft of making Rosé:
