Summer may seem lightyears away right now, but before we know it, the leaves will be green, the temperatures warm (or at least warmer; we’re in England after all), and we’ll be swapping our spiced mulled wines for more summery rosés. Perfectly timed, the inaugural Rosé Festival will be coming to London for a long weekend in the late spring.
Taking place between May 27–29, the festival will celebrate all things rosé, perfect for casual fans and connoisseurs alike. Over 40 brands and producers from around the world will descend on the 13-acre lawn and walled gardens of Fulham Palace for a fun-filled fiesta of wine, food, live music and entertainment.
Between sampling and purchasing brands such as Maison Mirabeau, Léoube, Ultimate Provence, Berne Wine and Châeau Minuty, you can head to the Central Tudor Courtyard for a selection of dishes perfectly paired with the wines on offer. While the esteemed food partners are yet to be announced, we can expect leading restaurants and individual chefs to make an appearance. There’ll also be a Bluebird Chelsea x Maison Mirabeau Rosé Spritz bar for spritzes and cocktails.
The Rosé Festival will boast an extensive entertainment schedule throughout the weekend, including live music during the day and lively DJs playing well into the evening. There will also be interactive wine tastings, a series of chef masterclasses, and a whole host of other lifestyle events. Guests can pre-order a limited-edition ‘Pink-nic Hamper’ for two, which can be enjoyed at the event.
Tickets are on sale now on The Rosé Festival’s website, with early bird prices available until the end of December.
