Our previous vintages of Bee Pink have been a sell out and it’s now a firm favourite for our wine club members. We've made 2400 bottles from this vintage, but judging by the sales from previous years, you’ll need to be quick!
It’s made in the Provence style – very pale in colour, but with plenty of delicate fruit flavours.
An attractive delicate pale pink.
Aromas of citrus fruit and white peach, with a hint of cranberry and pink grapefruit.
Bone dry and very refreshing, with crisp, mouthwatering freshness, and charming summer pudding red fruit flavours.
- Winemaking Notes
Our friend Jean-Marc Lafage (who owns Chateau St Roch, near Maury, where we make our red wine) is one of the Roussillon’s finest rosé producers. He has allowed us to work with some of his Grenache, Grenache Gris and Syrah grapes to produce our own Bee Pink.
- Growing Conditions
An extremely dry winter, and a damp and cool early spring gave way to an extraordinary heat wave in June, with the temperature peaking at 42, but with the maximum daily temperature staying 30 degrees for over 30 days out of 35 in June and July. The rest of the summer was much cooler, and the grapes for our rosé were harvested in almost perfect conditions before the rains of the 10th September.
- Food Pairing
Delicious with a salade nicoise, or a chicken salad, and the taste will transport you to the sunshine and stunning landscape of the South of France.

Let us know what you think
(2020) From English MW Justin Howard-Sneyd and his family, this blend of Grenache and Syrah is made by Jean-Marc Lafage of Domaine Lafage, with a limited run of individually numbered bottles. It’s an unashamed homage to Provence from its pretty, pale salmon pink colour, to its sheer acidity and cool red fruit profile. As in the 2018 there’s a whiff of exotic pot-pourri of flowers and spices, dry reducrrant, downy peach and watermelon fruit. That bracing shot of acidity revs up the finish, so whilst delicate and light, it has a bit of tension and grip too. Note that members of Domaine of the Bee’s wine club can buy for £12, and bibwine.co.uk will be selling a limited number of 2.25-litre boxes of this wine.
