“Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes” – Jim Carrey. Church Road Gwen Rose
Florence Gwendolen Brown. Or you can call her Gwen. She was the wife of Hawke’s Bay winemaking icon and Church Road legend Tom McDonald.
Gwen is a rosé named after the legendary woman behind the legendary man. Tom was a man who seriously loved French winemaking techniques so he’ll have been bloody impressed with this dry, elegant and refreshing Rosé based on the Provence style found in the south of France, made from quality Hawke’s Bay Merlot grapes.
A Rosé lovers Rosé – and for those that love a love story! Head to the Church Road winery there in Hawke’s Bay and pop your head in their museum. You’ll find a love poem written by Tom for Gwen back in 1971. Aww!
