We all know that by default I’ll usually enjoy a glass of Rosé at any time of year, but especially in the summer months. Some of you also know that I am inching towards 40 years old next year and therefore grew up in the 80s and 90s, which in my opinion, are the best years of all musicly. SO…. When I found out that when a king of 90s music has teamed up with a king of the wine world (that I’ve shared about before) to release a bottle of Rosé my heart was aflutter and I had to tell you all about it!
What comes to mind when I say the name Jon Bon Jovi? I know what does for me. Epic, memorable ballads that I used to sing at the top of my lungs – such as, but not limited to
Just to name a few – and yes, I hope you also go into a whole reminiscent tale of rediscovering all his classics like I am as I write these words.
Most recently this icon helped to launch the delicious rosé collab, Hampton Water, between renowned French biodynamic winemaker Gérard Bertrand, Jon Bon Jovi and his son Jesse Bongiovi. The gentlemen are even came Toronto for a quick meeting and intimate gathering at the Toronto Beach Club which I am kicking myself for having missed. My schedule is SO busy these days but that’s fine, because we can still all get excited about it together!
Hampton Water unites the essence of the relaxed lifestyles of the Hamptons and the South of France. Its fifth vintage is set to hit LCBO shelves on September 10 — perfect to extend our glorious summer with a celebrated rosé! The wine expects to reach an important milestone by year end – achieving 1 million bottles sold. Price is $29.95. The bottle will launch in Ontario and at the LCBO first, but I have no doubt it will make its way to you all in Canada from coast-to-coast soon enough.
“Elegant rosé with a beautiful pale pink colour. On the nose, this wine develops notes of red fruit, citrus and spices. The mouth reveals a beautiful minerality with a fresh and intense character and a unique length in mouth that makes it the ideal companion for friendly moments.”
Sounds pretty perfect to me!
I know that I’m very much looking forward to trying it out for myself during the excitement of TIFF which I will be in Toronto for. I encourage you all to join in on the social media conversation as well by following @hamptonwater & @gerardbertrandofficial online and tagging them when you try the product. I like to believe that Jon Bon Jovi will be waiting anxiously for me to share my thoughts with him 😉
