Rosé on tap from three wheels

Wine on wheels. Could it get any better? Introducing Van Rosé.

Olly Smith has converted an old Italian Piaggio van into a rustic mobile bar serving wine on tap.

Serving up a deliciously fruity rosé wine hailing from the Languedoc region of France, Olly’s little van is set to drive to events around Bristol this summer including festivals, markets and weddings.

Olly, originally from London, spent ten years living in Asia, where his travels took him across the continent from Pokhara in Nepal to Kerala in Southern India, and then from Jakarta in Indonesia to Phuket in Thailand.

This travelling sparked his love for unusual forms of transport and when he spotted the Piaggio, a similar type of vehicle to the tuk tuks so beloved in Asian cities, he had to get his hands on one.

“I wanted to be able to bring people’s favourite drink to them,” Olly said on a recent visit to Bristol24/7 HQ in the Paintworks. “And everybody loves rosé!”
