Join The Wine Room at Balgowlah RSL for a delightful range of Rosés.

Most wineries are now producing Rosé given the rapid rise in popularity of the wine style.

They’ll start with a lovely Sparkling Cuvee Rosé from Taltarni, and then have 2 Rosés from Australia, and 4 Rosés from the Mirabeau winery in Provence, France.

We look forward to welcoming you to our tasting. You will taste the different styles of Rosé the various regions produce from a range of grape varieties. Pinot Noir, Grenache and Shiraz/Syrah all contribute different fruit weight, flavours and acidity to create the wineries unique style.
