Colline was a discerning woman, she'd tut when served caviar with anything other than a bone spoon, she would often send back her medium-medium rare New York Strip with complaints it was overdone or that "the kiss of life could revive that cow." However, this was rarely a problem for Colline's friends, they'd make apologetic eyes at waiters, but their lives were rarely affected by her exceptional palate.

That is, apart from when trying to find a rosé for Colline. Every wine was too dry or too sweet, too dark or too ‘this is just Chardonnay you put food colouring in!’ It seemed that every lazy summer afternoon was ruined by Colline’s admonishment of the quality of the wine. Eventually, her friends approached legendary Rhône producer Rhonéa, asking if they had a rosé that could satisfy their friend. The wine they received was lively and beautifully balanced and wonderfully quaffable with buckets of flavour and refreshing acidity. Colline was so charmed with the wine, that she now holds onto the bottle a bit longer than is perhaps socially acceptable, in fact her friends often find themselves saying “pass the rosé Colline!”
Rhonéa is a melting pot of local winegrowers all working together in the spectacular landscape of the Southern Rhône. Today Rhonéa is made up of 250 estates situated around the craggy and imposing Dentelles de Monmirail. All are united in their quest to produce quality grapes with minimal intervention to produce top drinking wines.



The Rhonéa team posit, "growing grapes sustainably is important but saving the planet is even more so! Rhonéa and their artisan winegrowers are fully responsible for their wines from the vine to the glass and committed to ethical and equitable practices."



The winegrowers and winemaker make the natural fruit expression their number one priority. When they pick the grapes, the air is filled intoxicating aromas. State-of-the-art modern equipment enables the grapes to be fermented at temperatures of 15 or 16 degrees Celsius. This gentle fermentation results in naturally balanced and fruity wine which is aged in temperature controlled stainless steel vats to preserve the fruit flavours and freshness.
