Vinmonopolets sales numbers reveal that Rosewine sold 50% more in May this year, compared to last year. Perhaps not that surprisng considering the warm and perfect weather. However, there are also other reasons why Rosewine is selling more than before. The trend is pointing towards drier, and paler wines, and we also tend to recognise ecological wines, and wines low in sugar. Several of our Rosewines have recieved high praises and critiqs that emphasize their quality.
