There’s nothing quite like popping open an ice cold bottle of rosé on a summer’s evening, especially when it’s one of the best wines in the world, and especially when it’s only set you back a mere £5.99.

Yep, you heard us right.

‘We have been working closely with renowned winemaker Jean Claude Mas to change perceptions around French wine, which is often perceived as expensive and intimidating, so it is fantastic to see some of these products acknowledged as some of the best in the world,’ said Tony Baines, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying.

We know where we’ll be going on our way home from work.
