Feel pretty in Pinknic at The Osbourne Hotel

Nothing says summer lovin’ like sipping on rosé, and The Osbourne Hotel agrees. To celebrate they’re throwing the ultimate summer soiree – Pinknic  – on December 3rd. Transforming the stunning beer garden into a glorious rosé garden for the afternoon with gourmet picnic hampers and 12 + rosés to sip and sample. No longer just a drink for your grandma, (love you Nan!) rosés are proving to be some seriously sexy drops! Some of the delicious international (hello world traveller!) and local pours on offer include The Pawn Wine Co ‘El Despardo’ Rosé, which will make you feel anything but with its blend of Spanish tempranillio and Italian Sangiovese, get spicy with the 2017 d’Arenberg ‘Stephanie The Gnome with Rose Tinted Glasses’, a sangiovese/shiraz or keep it supremely classy with a flute of Howard Park ‘Jete’ Brut Rose. Tickets include a glass of sparkling rosé on arrival and your very own Pinknic hamper (because there’s no way we’re sharing!) with smoked salmon, duck paté, baguette, cold cut meats, grilled vegetables, cheese and macaroons. You won’t just feel good from that sweet rosé buzz either, donations from the event will go to Share the Dignity, an Australian charity for impoverished women in need of feminine hygiene supplies. Bring along something to add to special Christmas bags because everyone deserves to feel the love. Ready to say yes-way to rosé? Book your ticket here! Words by Emma Callaghan
