3 reasons to think pink in October

Posted by [email protected] on September 18, 2017

No.1 Rosé may look beautifully frivolous with its delicate salmon-pink colour and mass of tiny bubbles. But beneath its playful exterior lies a dry, fresh and elegant wine, that leaves a lasting impression of opulence and splendour.

Spring is here! And as we start to come out of hibernation and our social calendars heat up again we thought we’d share three reasons why you should be drinking and sharing No.1 Rosé this October.

It’s good for the waistline - No.1 Rosé was recently awarded Best Rosé, by Glass of Bubbly magazine, in their quest to find the perfect low-calorie bubbly!

It’s quite at home as the star of the show – Your No.1 Rosé should never be considered as simply an aperitif. We’re the first to agree a chilled glass of bubbles is the perfect way to welcome your guests; but No.1 Rosé, just like our other Methode Traditionelle wines, is a food-pairing champion. Delicious with duck and lamb, it makes a perfect accompaniment for your main course when entertaining.

You’ll be doing your bit – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and as ever, we’ll be supporting a local charity very close to our hearts, The Nelson Regional Breast and Gynaecological Cancer Trust. We’ll be donating 10% of all online and cellar door sales of No.1 Rosé to the NRBGCT, so we can help them carry on with the marvellous work they do throughout the region.

There's still snow in Queenstown - And here's our recommendation for your Aprs Ski!

Spring may have sprung but you can still hit the slopes in beautiful Queenstown! In fact, as the Queenstown NZ website says… Longer warmer days mean you can head up the mountain a bit later, and spend the afternoon skiing until last chair.

With all that exercise, we have no doubt that you’ll work up quite an appetite and we want to share one of our favourite Queenstown haunts for you to refuel after a day on the ski field… Ivy & Lola’s – Kitchen & Bar.

You’ll find Ivy & Lola’s close to Lake Wakatipu, in the Steamer Wharf building. Take an outside seat for a remarkable view of the Remarkables.

This thriving hub of hospitality serves up the sort of hearty food required to refill your energy reserves after a full-on day of fun! Like all of our favourite establishments the kitchen places great emphasis on seasonal ingredients and locally-sourced produce. Expect to sample a medley of fine New Zealand fare, from Green-lipped mussels to Cecil Peak Station’s renowned lamb.

If you’ve worked up a thirst, add some fizz to your footsteps on your way back to your hotel, you can enjoy a glass of No.1 Family Estate NV Brut Assemblé with a light bite from the afternoon menu at Ivy & Lola’s… Discover it HERE.
