Not as heavy as red yet not as light as white, rosé wine is loved all around the world for its versatility and flavour. Unlike shiraz, pinot noir, chardonnay or moscato, roséis not made from a specific grape but is actually its own genre of wine. It’s hard to put an exact date on when rosé wine originated because, back in ancient Greece, many red wines were the colour of today’s rosés. On top of this, wine was often diluted to discourage uncivilised, drunken behaviour. It was only in the 6th century BC that rosé was brought to France, and that rosé wine started to become so popular.

Making our award-winning rosé wine
Similarly to red wine, rosé gets its beautiful colour from the red grapes it’s made from. However, rosé wines are not left to macerate with the red grape skins for as long a time, which is why they have a lighter, pink tone.
At Millon Wines, all of our wines are made using modern technologies and safe environmental practices. Our winemaker, Angus Wardlaw, adopts a minimalistic approach — allowing the grapes’ natural flavours to speak for themselves. You can taste the unique climate and soil, and the passion of the winemaker in every bottle of Millon Wine.
