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! After a forced break last year, our favourite rosé festival is back, meaning you can once again spend a Saturday afternoon sampling endless pink wines and snacking on delicious eats, preferably dressed in your coral best.
This year the blush-hued event is heading to Fish Lane in South Brisbane, setting up amongst the greenery in the lush Town Square. Even better, there’ll be a huge line up of 25 different rosés to sample from the pop-up bars, and the nibbles will be provided by none other than Southside, who’ll be dishing up Asian-style grazing boxes for attendees. Tickets are $65 per person, which includes five wine tasting tokens, an individual grazing box and of course, unfettered access to the many pop-up bars.
Don’t want the party to end? It doesn’t have to—following the main event, Fish Lane is dedicating a whole month to rosé, with a heap of special events, rosé-inspired dishes and drinks on the calendar until 31 October. Think rosé margaritas at Kiki, rosé spritzes at Julius Pizzeria, a rosé lunch at Maeve Wine 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.
