Canapés and Cocktails at Goodwood May Festival

Sophie and I were thrilled to welcome hundreds of people to the ‘Rosé Wine and Food Pairing’ Masterclasses held upstairs at the Oak Tree Lawn Bar during the Goodwood Food Festival at the end of May.

It was lovely being able to share how incredibly well our Provence Rosé pairs with different types of cuisine, and that they also make wonderful cocktails (tip: an excellent use of any ‘leftover wine’).
