Get ready to rosé all day this Saturday!
Kurrawa Beach will transform into a sea of pink and white tomorrow for the inaugural Rosé Coast Gold Coast wine and food festival.
Festivalgoers will have sand between their toes as they sip their way through 40 home-grown rosés from over 20 wine growing regions across Australia.
“It’s a one day event, on the sand. I don’t think there is any better way to drink rosé then sitting by the beach with your friends and listening to some music,” Rosé Coast Co-Producer and Creative Director Kristen Francis told myGC.
In addition to rosé, there will also be plenty of other wine on offer including prosecco, red and white, as well as cocktails from Brookie’s Byron Gin, Brix Distillery and Matso’s, along with amber drops from Gage Roads Brew Co.
Foodies can rejoice too, with the gourmet food menu set to include cheese and charcuterie platters, freshly shucked oysters, burgers, seafood, Italian, and a delicious gelato bar.
Festivalgoers can awaken their inner artist at the Pinot & Picasso speed painting classes or enjoy a sand sculpting workshop throughout the day.
Plus, there will be tunes seaside until sunset by local Rosé Coast DJ, Marea Lambert-Barker, while endota spa Broadbeach pop ups will provide relaxing neck and shoulder massages and/or skin consults.
Ms Francis said a little wet weather won’t dampen the mood either.
“Stick on a poncho and your dancing shoes, and after a couple of rosés, you’ll be fine!” she said.
The Rosé Coast festival is on May 1 from 11am-6pm. For more information or to purchase tickets visit: rosecoast.com.au
