We all know that some of the best rosé wines in the world come from Provence, France, so much so that the market is saturated with tired names and products that are excellent, but safe. Thanks to smaller newcomers to Provence, like Mirabeau, the rosé scene in the region is diversifying and the status quo is being challenged. Launched by a small family from London who moved to Provence to pursue the dream of making exceptional rosé, Mirabeau rosé prides itself on being one of the best in the region and being a delicious pairing to a range of cuisine.
