Glasgow is going through a lovely heatwave at the moment which has got me preoccupied with rose wine. Rose is made for hot weather (I have a strict rule: I only drink it in the spring and summer months) and sitting outside sipping a chilled glass is one of life’s pleasures.
I previously thought I didn’t like rose wine, believing it to be too sweet, but visiting Marseille in France a few years ago and tasting the wine from the nearby Provence region got me on to it. I recently glanced through my photographs of drinking rose the baking heat on that trip and was reminded how ridiculously enjoyable it was. That, combined with the lovely weather in Glasgow, has made me want to just fill my blog with photographs of rose. So I have.
Also, I can’t really say with any authority what kind of rose I like, just that I prefer it to be really light, almost clear. So if you have any recommendations (not too expensive, please) leave them below.

We went down to the stunning Vallon des Auffes with a bottle of rose wine and I dipped it in the water to chill it.

I also drank plenty of Rose wine on our recent trip to Loubressac. Is there anything better than a chilled glass of rose and a well stocked Kindle enjoyed on a balcony? That is, of course, a rhetorical question.
