Back in May, two of our all-time favourite things joined forces when Kylie Minogue wine became a reality.
On her 52nd birthday, the singer unveiled her signature Kylie rosé wine – a perfect light, refreshing drink to sip on lazy summer afternoons – as it was rolled out in 450 Tesco stores across the country, and it promptly sold out in less than a month.
The debut Rosé Vin de France is a bespoke blend which combines Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the French coast, and has a juicy, crisp flavour with aromas of summer berries and white blossom. But while all of this makes it sound like a rather luxe choice, it’s also affordable, retailing for just £9 per bottle.
Now, she’s capitalising on its success with the introduction of her very first vintage rosé, the 2019 Côtes de Provence Rosé, which will retail for a still very reasonable £18.

“I have a great passion for rosé and have loved working for the last two years on developing Kylie Minogue Wines. Working with the brilliant team at Benchmark Drinks we have created a Rosé that I am truly enamoured by, it’s fresh, light and the perfect pink” @KylieMinogue. #kylieminoguewines
‘I am so excited to debut the first of the Collection series. The Côtes de Provence is my first vintage! l look forward to seeing and hearing how people enjoy this beautifully pale, blush Provencal rosé,’ Kylie herself says of the new addition.
Created in the oldest winemaking region in France, just west of St. Tropez, the 2019 vintage ’emanates alluring, expressive aromas of pink grapefruit, watermelon and lemon blossom. A crisp, dry and beautifully textured palate with zesty fruits leads to a long, silky mineral finish,’ the release for the drink explains.
However, before you rush down to your local Tesco, you should know that the second tipple in the the Kylie Minogue wine line-up won’t be in supermarkets just yet – it’s currently an exclusive on the brand’s website, so you’ll have to place an order if you want to give it a try.

They may no longer be partners in marriage but Brad and Angelina co-own Miraval vineyard, which produces the popular Studio Rosé. Their pale 13% wine carries notes of fresh and citrus fruit.
Ryan Reynolds purchased a sizeable share of Aviation Gin after trying it and falling in love, and has now become the face for the brand. It’s made in Portland, Oregon and has a unique balance of flavours including cardamom, lavender and coriander, rather than the usual reliance on juniper.
Drew’s eponymous wine line includes a pinot grigio and a rosé pinot noir. The white is an Italian white wine made in Triveneto region in the north east of Italy – it’s more widely available in the US, but possible to order it here.
David Beckham launched Haig Club in association with Pop Idol’s Simon Fuller, and it’s described as it is light, clean and ultra-smooth. Serve it on the rocks or blended into a cocktail – it’s just as good either way.
Channing Tatum’s potato-based vodka brand Born And Bred is 20 times distilled, leading to a really crisp, clean taste. It’s ‘nourished by the unspoiled glacial water that flows from the Grand Teton mountains’ – and said to be so good you can even drink it neat.
