Enjoy Spring at Allesverloren!
Sun’s out and so is the wine of the season – rosé! In fact, rosé is having a bit of a moment and not just because of the weather. We’ve got the Rugby World Cup to thank too!
The most desirable rosé wines are often compared to those from France’s region of Provence – pale pink, light-bodied and bearing flavours and aromas of summer berries. These define the Allesverloren Tinta Rosé exactly. (Buy it now, buy it here)
So, while this latest edition of our newsletter isn’t exclusively about rosé, it does reflect our joy at the return of warmer days.
Rosé, my love!
Rosé-lovers are spoilt for choice these days. There are now more rosés than ever before, and the days of them exclusively being sweet are long gone. Our Tinta Rosé is made with Tinta Barocca, a Portuguese grape we’ve farmed for many years.
The juice from these red grapes is clear, but after less than two hours of processing in the winery, the skins start to transfer their colour. That is what makes Allesverloren rosé lighter than most. Only free-run juice of the grapes is used.
We’re running a special on our Tinta Rosé for the season. It’s available from our site at R95/bottle. If you buy a case of six, you only pay for five! Be sure to use this coupon code when you order your case of six: 5JCJYEX8

Our picnic season is officially open
From October to March, we open our tree-lined lawns for weekend picnics. Platters are prepared locally and must be booked in advance.
They contain a delicious selection of the typical fare – various quality cold cuts, cheese and preserves. A complimentary wine tasting is included in the price too.
The picnics may be enjoyed on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from October to March next year.
The platters with a choice of savoury, cheese, meat, vegetarian or charcuterie are priced at R300 for two people sharing. Make your reservation at least 48 hours in advance on 022 461 2589 or email@example.com.
Swartland at the Seaside party
Curious to taste how Allesverloren racks up against other wines from the Swartland? Then come along to Saldanha Bay for the Swartland at the Seaside party on 4 November.
A total of 28 wineries will show their wines. Also on offer will be live music as well as street and seaside food. Formal tastings will take place at 11:00 and 13:00 with the aim of highlighting the impact of the region’s diverse soil types on its wines. If you’re keen to join them, make sure you book a seat.
The event takes place at 35 Main Road. Tickets are available at R895pp from Quicket.
A great springtime dish to serve with our rosé
Allesverloren Tinta Rosé doesn’t need food to be enjoyed, but if you’re looking for a dish that works brilliantly with the wine, try this. Carey Erasmus, an experienced food stylist and culinary consultant with a major following, created this Beetroot Falafel recipe, available here.
