Lichine teamed up with renowned winemaker Patrick Léon. Together they created a rosé that was exquisite in taste and appearance—a rosé that would change the way people think about this beverage and make it a desirable and aspirational choice.

Sacha Lichine, speaking to Gentleman’s Journal, shared insights into the transformation of rosé wine. He noted, “Around the 1990s there was a bit of glamour associated with rosé wine because of the Cannes Film Festival – a lot of Americans went to Cannes and took the rosé they’d been drinking back to the US with them, so it became quite chic and associated with the lifestyle of the French Riviera.”
