For National Rosé Day on the 12th of June, Helen McGinn presented a range of rosé wines on BBC One’s Saturday Kitchen live.
We are thrilled that Helen chose Canned Wine Co.’s 2020 Grenache Rosé as one of her favourites! She remarked “wine in cans is nothing new, but good wine in cans is relatively new”, while complimenting the “really lovely pale Provence colour” of the wine.
Helen is a regular drinks expert on the show, an international wine judge and the author of the best-selling book, The Knackered Mother's Wine Club.
Saturday Kitchen’s own Matt Tebbutt commented “What is better than rosé? Portable rosé!”

What's in the can?
Our 2020 Grenache Rosé is made by winemaker Thierry Boudinaud from fruit grown in the Pays d'Oc in south-west France. It's a smooth, lightly coloured rosé brimming with red berries, grapefruit and orange.
The wine gets its delicate colour and fresh aromatics thanks to Thierry's focus in the vineyard, ensuring the grapes are picked early enough to retain their acidity and in the dead of night, when it's coolest. The grapes are sorted and transported under CO2 to avoid oxidation, before enjoying a long cool ferment in stainless steel.
The wine pairs beautifully with picnic food, fresh salads, shellfish or sheep's milk cheese.
