Lardner also reports an interest in Ace of Spades Rosé from men: “We’ve found our Rosé to be really popular with men, the stigma towards the style seems to have gone,” she told db.

Last month db reported that Nigeria was developing a thirst for wine, and particularly high end Champagne, with its wine industry expected to reach US $370m by 2015.
