In Jamie Ivey's sequel to Extremely Pale Rosé, he finds out whether it is possible to run a successful rosé bar in France. French friends think it's a crazy idea: bar customers are largely men and rosé is seen as a woman's drink; rosé is a seasonal drink and Jamie's trade will vanish come September - and rosé isn't supposed to accompany food. Yet France seems to be on the brink of a rosé revolution: rosé sales are booming.

In Jamie Ivey's delightful sequel to Extremely Pale Rosé, he attempts what seems the impossible-running a successful rosé bar in France

In Jamie Ivey's delightful sequel to Extremely Pale Rosé, he attempts what seems the impossible-running a successful rosé bar in France. French friends laugh heartily and say it's the silliest idea they've ever heard! Why, the customers for bars are mostly men and rosé is seen a woman's drink; not to mention, it's a seasonal drink and his trade will vanish come September! Then as if that wasn't enough, bars make their money from food, rosé isn't meant to accompany food. It's flat out preposterous. But Jamie looks at the entire scheme through rosé tinted.

Rose en Marche is the third title in the delightful 'rose' series by Jamie Ivey, and involves Tanya and Jamie selling rose in French markets. They rent a flat in Saint Remy de Provence and work in the town's market as well as three or four other local markets. There is, of course, the odd flying visit from their old friend Peter Tate. In La Vie en Rose the Iveys had set up and run their own rose bar. However, they discovered that a French alcohol licence cost about 30,000 euros. On top of this, legislation meant it was impossible to set up a new bar within 50 metres of an existing one. All the viable locations already had plenty of bars, and to succeed they had to look at buying one of them. Given these unexpected costs the Iveys had to recognise that the whole project was too expensive and risky, but they still wanted to stay in France, and still wanted to be involved with rose. They decided to set up a rose shop, but rejected the idea. Streets which had a lot of people passing along them also had expensive leases. Finally they realised that the busiest time in any French town is market day. Rather than take the risk of buying an expensive lease, they needed to set up their own market stall. Able to rent space in any market in France, they opt for the exquisite Provencal town of Saint Remy. Rose en Marche will enchant and attract all the readers who are still in the pink from the first two 'rose' volumes.

Another good book about Ivey's wine-selling exploits in Provence. Price was good, and shipping was fast.

It assumes some knowledge of Roses in France but a delightful tales of success in spite of the odds. Good insight into french markets and how hard it is to make a living. A good read.

Jamie Ivey wrote two very interesting road books about France, in each case following the trail of Rose wines. Wine lovers sometimes consider Rose wines to be a bit shallow, light, not really worthy of study. But Ivey proves that there are many wine makers in France who take them very seriously indeed, even those whose main interest lies in more serious vintages. And, even better, Ivey captures a great deal of French culture as seen through the eyes of a British ex-pat:

Extremely Pale Rosé: A Very French Adventure

La Vie en Rose: A Very French Adventure Continues

In Rose En Marche, Ivey settles down for a year and learns about selling Rose wine, and a great deal more about France.

His fourth book really establishes Ivey and his family in France. Ten Trees and a Truffle Dog: Sniffing Out the Perfect Plot in Provence describes the challenges of building their own house and starting a truffle business in the South of France near the village of Lourmarin in the Luberon.

Rose En Marche describes how Ivey learned the ins and outs of the wine trade; it has more substance than the first two road books, and approaches the reality described in his fourth book. His prose is intensely personal -- he captures the changes in the seasons from the bitter cold of the winter, to the gentle promises of spring, the scorching of summer heat, the pleasant triumphs of the sweet autumn breezes. During the year Ivey and his wife mature from optimistic settlers to serious wine market merchants.

As a frequent traveler to France, and elsewhere, I found the market mentality one of the most interesting parts of the book; Ivey describes both sides of several transactions in great and fascinating detail. The bureaucracy is always necessary in a market society and Ivey describes it well, with a bit of bitter humor I thought. And, at the end, it's fun to share Tanya's and Jamie's success of selling wine from market stalls.

I've always tried to find the shops and the restaurants frequented by locals, but somehow Ivey is able to communicate how to determine whether prices are "correct" and thus whether the shop is worth patronizing.

It is certainly not necessary to read the first two books in the series to enjoy this one; they will add a bit of the traveler's perspective and have their moments. But this book captures a more important journey, one where Ivey and his wife settle down and really learn how to make a living and a life in a new country.

If you like food or wine or dogs or France -- or just the joy of life -- you may love this book as much as I do.

Do yourself a favor and read Extremely Pale Rose and La Vie en Rose first . This is such a great series that you don't want to miss any
of the books. In the first book, a quest for the palest rose in France begins as a vacation lark for 3 friends. In the second Jamie & Tanya,
a British couple commit to leaving their lives in London and following their dream to set up a rose bar in Provence. Through many misadventures, they decide that selling in the marches in the villages in Provence is the way to go. This book sees their dream being seriously challenged as they learn to navigate French bureaucracy and local customs. Jamie Ivey is a witty and completely engaging writer.
You will be cheering Jamie and Tanya as they work through all the obstacles, as if they were old friends. And you will wonder if you don't
have a dream tucked away that needs your attention. Mostly you will be laughing and missing France and wanting the food and wine he
describes! A really fun series!

Jamie Ivey has written one of the most enveloping books about life in the south of France and the food culture that surrounds it. From the first page I was drawn into his story and dreamed at night of Provence. He captured the area perfectly and tells an amusing tale as life as a wine purveyor in French markets. Having been myself to many of these markets, I was impressed and amazed at how well Jamie captured their spirit and essence. I laughed out loud many times and was driven to pour my own glass of rose on more than one occasion.
I immediately ordered Jamie's other two books, Extremely Pale Rose and La Vie En Rose and can't wait to read them.
This is a fantastic book to read at home or while traveling through France. It encompasses all the great things about the area: the food, the scenery, the people, and especially the rose.
