Pive - Vie de Bohème Wine- PhotoFrom the renowned Maison Jean Jean, this organic rosé from the Camargue Sands with reddish hues near the ocean displays cherry notes and is subtly acidic. Floral, long in the mouth … What finesse! (a nice alternative, if it is not offered in your SAQ, Le Pive Gris).

  • 14 % of  Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 9 % of Grenache
  • 7 % of Mourvedre

4. Kim Crawford Rosé, New Zealand

Kim Crawford Rosé Wine - PhotoHere, we find ourselves in a wine that puts the sweet fruit in value. Quenching, but very different from Provence rosés. It will certainly please those who start with the rosé.

  • 100% of Merlot

The SAQ x FBQ initiative all in rosé!

For the 10th edition, the SAQ is partnering with the Quebec Food Banks Network (FBQ) and invites you to buy rosé wines for which it will donate $ 1 to the organization for each bottle sold.

This activity, which takes place from May 2 to 12 in the approximately 400 SAQ branches as well as on the SAQ’s website, will also be an opportunity to solicit additional donations during your checkout.

In addition, for each gift box sold, the SAQ will also donate pennies to the Quebec Food Banks network.
