Ahh, rosé. It really is the drink of the people, no? From birthdays to breakups, gossip sessions to glitzy events, rosé (unlike white that gives you a cracking headache and red that makes you sleepy) is the champion plonk that unites us all. Plus, you know, it’s pink, so it gets brownie points…
And now, Brisbane folk, here is your chance to celebrate the not-so-humble blush bevvy (read: drinking a few glasses of the stuff) because Rosé Revolution is back! Now in its ninth year, you can once again spend a Saturday afternoon on 8 October sampling endless pink wines and snacking on delicious eats, preferably dressed in your coral best.
Once again the blush-hued event is heading to Fish Lane in South Brisbane, with 'Taste, Drink, Enjoy' setting up amongst the greenery in the lush Town Square with a huge line up of 32 different wineries coming along to provide tastings from the pop-up bars. VIP tickets are $89pp, which scores you early entry and one hour of unfettered access to the many pop-up bars for complimentary tastings and education, or you can opt for general admission for $55pp, which includes a complementary Bandini Prosecco on arrival and nibbles, with tastings available for purchase.
Don’t want the party to end? It doesn’t have to—following the main event, Fish Lane is dedicating almost thr whole month to rosé, with a heap of special events, rosé-inspired dishes and drinks on the calendar until 31 October. Think rosé paint and sip at Chu The Phat, a rosé lunch at both Maeve Wine and La Lune Wine Co, rosé margs at Kiki, rosé martinis at Bar Brutus and the one we’ve earmarked in particular, a bottomless rosé brunch at Billy Kart. Too much rosé? There’s no such thing.
So what are you waiting for? Grab yourself some tickets, plan out your rosé drinking schedule and get ready for brilliant drops and a damn good time.
