Rosé Festival | 2017
Looking back on a beer goggles moment can sometimes evoke regret, but it’s the opposite with wine…
Maybe that’s just because they’re rosé-tinted glasses.
But helping to cast that heady, cheerful glow over a summer weekend is London’s first Rosé Festival. Taking place on the sun-dappled front lawn of the Geffrye Museum in Hoxton, it’ll see over thirty top-shelf rosé producers come together to serve up their finest wares for your delectation.
And here’s what you’ll find:
THE PINK STUFF
It’ll be here in droves – and while the emphasis here is on wine and Champagne, growers will also be showcasing some of their other creations, from ciders and sparkling wines to vermouths. The producers will all be manning the stalls themselves, so you can ask them everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the drink. Turns out it’s rarely made from just mixing red and white to get pink – and it’s actually legally forbidden in France. Who knew.
THE NON-PINK STUFF
Aside from all that, they’re also throwing in some of London’s best street food traders, plus live music and entertainment, covering all the bases from Shakespearean performances to live jazz and DJ sets.
Just don’t go too heavy on the samples.
They might leave you a little rosé-cheeked.
Details: The Rosé Festival is taking place on 21st-23rd July at the Geffrye Museum in Hoxton. Entrance tickets cost £15 and are available HERE.
