In this Saturday’s (May 12) VINTAGES release, LCBO is featuring a bright and fruity rosé that has quickly become a crowd favourite. The SEXY Rosé, from grapes grown in Portugal’s warm and sunny Alentejo, is a blend of indigenous and international varietals, which come together to combine a delicious, fruity and emenently quaffable summer patio stand-by!

With sun on the horizon for the next week, pick up a bottle or two, and enjoy in the sun! It tends to sell quite quickly upon release, so get them while you can!
