Ingredients (Serves 4-6)

  • 400g strawberries
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar or Honey for added sweetness
  • Ridge Rosé
  • 170ml heavy cream


  1. Prepare the Strawberries: Start by cutting the stalks from the strawberries. If the strawberries are very large, quarter them. For smaller strawberries, simply cut them into halves.

  2. Macerate the Strawberries: In a large bowl, sprinkle the strawberries with caster sugar. If you prefer a different kind of sweetness, honey can be used as an alternative. Pour enough Ridge Rosé over the strawberries to cover them completely. Leave the strawberries to macerate for at least 30 minutes. This step allows the strawberries to soak up the flavours of the rosé, enhancing their natural sweetness and adding a subtle wine flavour.

  3. Assemble the Dessert: After macerating, use a slotted spoon to scoop out the strawberries from the bowl. Divide them evenly between serving glasses or bowls.

  4. Add the Cream: Whisk the heavy cream. Gently spoon the whipped cream over the strawberries in each glass or bowl.

  5. Serve and Enjoy: Your Strawberry Rosé Sundae is now ready to be enjoyed. This dessert is best served immediately, allowing guests to savour the fresh flavours and creamy texture.

Tips for Success

  • Choose Fresh Strawberries: The quality of the strawberries can make a big difference in this recipe. Look for ripe, juicy strawberries that are in season for the best flavour.
  • Chill the Rosé: Using chilled Ridge Rosé wine can help keep the dessert refreshing and cool, perfect for a hot summer day.
  • Customise Your Sweetness: Adjust the amount of sugar or honey to suit your taste preferences. Some might prefer a sweeter dessert, while others might enjoy a more subtle sweetness.
