If you're a fan of rosé, you're not alone. The celebrity love for this delicately hued tipple knows no bounds. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were among the first to give it the celeb treatment when they launched their Château Miraval in 2011. Jon Bon Jovi has had huge success with his Hampton Water, which he makes in collaboration with renowned Languedoc winemaker Gérard Bertrand; Sting and Trudie Styler produce a rosé at their Tenuta Il Palagio winery in Tuscany; and Graham Norton, who's had quite the success with his gin and wines, also has a rosé in his portfolio.

More recently, rapper and Grammy award winner Post Malone reportedly crashed the Vivino app when he launched his own French rosé, Maison No. 9, named after his favourite tarot card, the nine of sword.

But now it seems that rosé is the new perfume. Donnafugata is flashing a Dolce & Gabbana-designed label on its new Sicilian rosé, and there's been the pitter-patter of Manolos as Sarah Jessica Parker and Kylie Minogue have revealed that they too have a real passion for rosé winemaking. I haven't tried the SJP, but I have tried Kylie's blend of Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon, which has her signature on the embossed white label. It is a nicely made drop, with plenty of summer strawberries and ripe blood orange. You'll find it online at winesoftheworld.ie and in Carry Out off- licences for €12.99.
