It’s hard to believe that summer is only one short month away. It feels like we were just carving turkeys and decorating trees, and now we’re pulling out our bathing suits and heading to the beach! As you get ready for warmer weather and longer days, make sure your wine cellar is properly stocked with the three best wines for all of your summer activities and celebrations.
It goes without saying that warm weather calls for chilled wine, and there’s nothing more refreshing than a cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc. With tropical notes and a crisp finish, it’s the ultimate sipping wine for a hot day spent floating in the pool. Make sure your wine stays colder longer by freezing grapes ahead of time and tossing a few into your glass. The grapes will act like an ice cube without diluting your wine and are a delicious snack when you’re finished.
Rosé is arguably one of the most popular wine varietals right now. With its fun pink color and refreshing fruity flavors, Rosé is the perfect go-to summer wine. The flavors of our 2015 Peju Rosé are reminiscent of everything you love about summer, like freshly picked berries and juicy nectarine.
If you’re someone who only enjoy reds, try reaching for a fun red blend during the warmer summer months. Red blends tend to be lighter than bold Cabernets and Merlots, but they still have the complex characteristics of red wine that you love. Our 2012 Piccolo is the perfect pick, as it pairs well with popular summer food like wood-fired pizzas and grilled vegetables.
