Say yes way to rosé this October at Riverbar and Kitchen

As if you needed another reason to hit the pink plonk.

Rosé lovers rejoice! A brand spanking new rosé festival in collab with Chandon is coming to Riverbar and Kitchen, in collab with Chandon during October, so be still our beating hearts.

Yes Way Rosé is the newest pop-up at everyone’s favourite riverside venue who we hear is sporting a spiffy new pink look to match the rosé inspired food and drinks menu on offer so Instagrams at the ready, people!

When it comes to power couples, rosé and spring are one of the strongest, going hand in glass with warmer weather and refreshing blush vino. Throw in stellar 180-degree views of the Brisbane River and Story Bridge and you’ve hit the trifecta.

Get sippy with new libations like the sgroppino with Belvedere vodka, Chandon sparkling rosé and raspberry sorbet (yes, you read that correctly), or perhaps the refreshing Chandon Spritz with St Germain elderflower, Chandon Brut rosé and soda water is more your vibe. Never fear, Riverbar’s iconic frosé is also here to stay.

When it comes to snacks get feasting on sugar-cured salmon and beetroot crostini with horseradish and amaranth, or potato and Italian sausage pizza with rose onions and purple basil. If you’re looking for something a little bit sweet, don’t miss the tasty lemon and strawberry meringue tart to go with your pink-hued spritz.

Rosé aficionados have the chance to exclusively sample the new Chandon Rosé sparkling in a stunning limited-edition bottle designed by Australia’s very own artist Gemma O’Brien!

The world is better through rosé coloured glasses, so get the gals together and hot foot it to Riverbar and Kitchen to sip your worries away.
