“Rosé is more than just a wine category, it is a way of life and that’s what unique about rosé,” says Pierrick Bouquet, president of ABLE and co-creator of La Nuit en Rosé. “Rosé has made itself inseparable from a summer gathering, a pool party or a barbecue. Close your eyes and sip rosé, you’re immediately transported into a summer paradise. Drinking rosé is the epitome of chic! ”
