SA rosé keeps on rocking

by | Aug 22, 2017 | Business and Marketing, Wineland

Rosé Rocks!’ is South Africa’s first dedicated rosé wine competition which seeks to recognise excellence in rosé winemaking and promote the SA Rosé category. Globally rosé is one of the fastest growing categories of wine. In South Africa alone, sales trebled between 2007 and 2014. This is exciting for consumers and winemakers alike and they simply cannot get enough of this style of wine with all of its sex appeal.
