Blossom Hill serves up a rosé summer

The campaign will comprise a £750,000 marketing initiative to support listings across the on- and off-trade sectors with tailored activities for specific channels to drive growth of its rosé varietals throughout the summer months.

The sponsorship will tie-in outlet activities with a London press media plan and national broadcast campaigns with Heart FM and Scotland’s Real Radio.

An experiential campaign at SW19’s Wimbledon Park will also run throughout the majority of the championships, to boost the brand’s consumer appeal.  As well as on-site sampling, branded rickshaws will transport tennis fans from local train and tube stations to the grounds; branded interactive games, including pink table tennis, will be employed to entertain queues
