Vino at the chateau: Worth spending the whole UB40 on this gloriously rosé, rosé wine

Not sure if it will pay for a trip to Provence, so we saved you the bother

Just back from holiday, many of us are ready for new inspiration and refreshing later summer rosé wines.

August and September are perfect months to refresh the memories of the summer’s trips to warmer climates, long walks on the beach and cosy evenings with good food, sunsets and a cool glass of rosé .

Denmark has embraced rosé wine in earnest; right now there are scores of variations found in the market. In particular, the south of France is known to produce some really delicious and smooth rosé wines.

No wining about the job
Hans Hermansen from the Copenhagen Post and I visited the Provencal pearl Chateau Vignelaure located near the city of Aix en Provence. We tasted our way through the many types and years (it was hard work), quickly agreeing upon the wine’s fantastic taste and quality.

The couple behind the project, Bengt and Mette Sundstrøm (, take part in the production themselves time-permitting. In a few short years, they have managed to create a world-class establishment, which this year was certified as an organic winery.

Aside from harvesting grapes, they have also reaped excellent reviews for their wide range of Provence wines.
