The twentieth century witnessed the birth and consolidation of Mateus Rosé, the Sogrape Vinhos flagship that truly conquered the world.
The history of Mateus Rosé goes back to 1942, when Fernando Van Zeller Guedes created and launched a highly distinctive concept - a wine with a strong personality and unique flavour, presented in an original and innovative bottle.
These aspects, when combined, became strong brand attributes and quickly making Mateus a wine known and appreciated worldwide. A powerful brand was born.
Inside the iconic bottle was something different: a new, rosé-coloured , fresh, slightly sparkling and very versatile wine.
As for packaging, a low flacon was chosen, inspired by the flasks used by soldiers during the First World War. A shape that stood out from every other, taller wine bottles. The label, unususal and innovative for its time, depicted the connection between the product and the land from which it came. This unique combination, strengthened by the wine's unique qualities, made Mateus Rosé a great success. But the real secret of Mateus Rosé lies in the winemaking care dedicated to its production! Produced exclusively from red grapes, the vinification process relies on techniques identical to those used in white wine production. The wine obtains its distinctive pink colour, while maintaining a soft and fruity style, by avoiding prolonged contact between the grape juice and its skin.
With the recent release of new varieties, Mateus Rosé has firmly established itself as a specialist brand of rosé wines. These new varieties complement each other and meet the expectations of various consumers seeking rosé wines with different characteristics. And nobody does rosé better than Mateus Rosé!
The brand strategy has thus been evolving over time in response to the market’s climate and demands, by using surprising and distinct communication campaigns that will continue to reaffirm the brand's unique position.
Mateus Rosé is a global brand, recognized and appreciated across the world fully capable of adapting to different tastes and cultures.
