Rosé is the drink of choice for stars of Bravo series including the Real Housewives and Vanderpump Rules, so Pepsi has decided to treat fans of the shows to its own take on the pink wine.

Attendees of BravoCon, the NBCUniversal-owned network’s first fan convention taking place Nov. 15-17 in New York, can sip Pepsi Sparkling Rosé created exclusively for the event.

The bubbly beverage is a non-alcoholic, zero-calorie rosé-flavored soda. Packaged in a clear full-size wine bottle, the pink-hued beverage is inspired by Bravo’s slate of programming and former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump, who has her own line of rosé.

“Like our loyal Pepsi fans, Bravo superfans are some of the most unapologetic and dedicated fans out there,” said Todd Kaplan, vice president of marketing for Pepsi. “We created Pepsi Sparkling Rosé to give the fans something extra special to enhance their BravoCon experience, and for a Real Housewives icon like LVP to give it her stamp of approval is truly awesome.”

Pepsi will highlight the rosé at numerous BravoCon activations and events, including a photo booth themed after Vanderpump’s Villa Rosa estate and a branded performance stage, as well as a branded bar that will appear in a live taping of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Nov. 17.

The three-day convention will feature more than 70 Bravo celebrities at 30 live events at New York venues including The Manhattan Center, Skylight Modern and Union West.
