The Gold Coast will be transformed into a sea of pink and white on Saturday May 1, as a wave of rosé lovers land on the shores of Kurrawa Beach to experience the inaugural, one-day Rosé Coast Gold Coast.
The M10 team was appointed as PR agency to the event earlier this year and has been busy collaborating with the Festival team to launch the event to market this week.
Set against the backdrop of the iconic Gold Coast skyline in Broadbeach, guests will discover an impressive line-up of Australian rosés alongside beers, ciders and cocktails accompanied by a curated gourmet food menu.
Brought to life by event producers Kristen Francis, (the award-winning Wine Island, Sydney Harbour), and Margot Natoli, (Sparkling SYDNEY), the inaugural Rosé Coast event is the perfect pairing with Australia’s favourite playground.
Rosé Coast Co-Producer and Creative Director Kristen Francis said the beachfront location on the Gold Coast is an idyllic venue to sip the day away and was the first choice to stage such an iconic event.
“Everyone involved has worked hard to put the event together, given circumstances over the last year, so we’re very excited to finally share the news that we will be hitting Gold Coast shores this May,” said Kristen.
Rosé Coast will be showcasing a huge variety of the best rosé from over 20 wine growing regions across Australia, including prosecco, sparkling rosé, rosatos and frosé.
“These will be complemented by alternative options such as sparkling, red and white wine, Brookie’s Byron Gin, Brix Distillers from Sydney, Matso’s Brewery and Gage Roads Brew Co. from WA, along with the Wine Selectors Discovery Bar, all matched with a carefully curated gourmet food offering by Gold Coast legends, In Season Catering.”
Expect to indulge in locally sourced produce including cheese and charcuterie platters, freshly shucked oysters, burgers, seafood, Italian, gelato and more, with catering set to pair perfectly with the premium wine on offer.
The ultimate beach party is made complete with a range of beach games and masterclasses, including fun-filled wine education and wine tasting in the Wine Selectors beach pavilion, including their legendary Silent Disco Drops, matching wine to music.
Beachgoers can also awaken their inner artist at the Pinot & Picasso art classes, sand sculpting workshops, or simply relax and let endota spa Broadbeach look after you with a massage and skin consultation – all set to an upbeat soundtrack, with beats and tunes across the day from the resident Rosé Coast DJ.
Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate said the event is a sure fit for the City.
“A key focus of our new Major Events team is to expand and diversify our annual events program,’’ he said.
“This event fits that bill perfectly. I applaud the organisers for seeing their way through the challenges of COVID-19 and making Rosé Coast Gold Coast happen in 2021. Let’s raise our glasses to bubbles, beers, ciders and cocktails.”
Major Events Gold Coast CEO, Jan McCormick, echoed the Mayor’s sentiments welcoming an added diversification of event concepts to expand what’s on offer in the region this year.
“As an event which fits our destination so perfectly, I am delighted to welcome Rosé Coast Gold Coast to our city. I encourage those attending to get the full Gold Coast experience by extending their visit, with an abundance of boutique and luxury hotels just a stone’s throw from the event.”
Tickets are anticipated to sell quickly with the entry price point of only $49, available from Monday 22 February, to subscribers of the Festival.
“We have devised price points to suit a range of guests, with those subscribed to the database afforded the added benefit of securing a ticket early and at a great price – with inclusion to the general admission areas, including all masterclasses, a glass of rosé from one of our Rosé Coast bars and an exclusive Rosé Coast wine tumbler to take home,” said Kristen.
Guests can upgrade to the exclusive VIP Beach Club presented by Chaffey Bros. from $139, including the addition of fast-tracked entry, access to the VIP Beach Club featuring a premium wine bar and endota spa Broadbeach massages and skin consultations. These tickets also include two glasses of award-winning Chaffey Bros. rosé and a meal voucher to enjoy from one of the gourmet food stalls.
For those wanting to relax and enjoy some added exclusivity with a small group of close friends, a very limited number of VIP Beach Cabana tickets are available (up to 10 pax), giving ticket holders all the great offerings of entry plus their own private cabana, access to the VIP Beach Club, as well as four bottles of Chaffey Bros. premium rosé per cabana and a gourmet food spread of up to three meals from selected food stalls per person.
This new event on the Gold Coast calendar will pop with colour, fun and everything that makes coast-life the only-life.
Rosé Coast is proudly supported by Major Events Gold Coast and has partnered with QT Gold Coast as the preferred accommodation for the event.
