Picnics in the park, mid-hike or on the beach are a time-honoured summer tradition here in Canada. While you could stick to lemonade, a nice bottle of wine just makes the occasion all the more festive. But with so many options crowding the liquor store shelves these days, which wine should you choose?
Enter rosé from Provence! The ideal choice; a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Celebrated Canadian wine writer Natalie Maclean is a big fan of these “lovely wines”. She highlights their “mouth-watering, bone-dry, food-friendly” allure1. This thirst quenching quality, paired with a light body and moderate alcohol levels, makes for an easy drinking option that won’t leave you dazed in the hot sun. Moreover, the crisp acidity and delicate tannins of AOP Provence rosé wines make it snap to pair with a huge variety of dishes from simple salads and grilled fish, to hearty red meats.
