Today I’m sharing with you my top summer wine picks and food pairings. Summer calls for non-stuffy, light and fun wines that are perfect for sipping on the patio.
Here are my 5 favorite wines for summer: From Rosé, to Sauvignon Blanc, to bubbles, I even threw a red wine into the mix – Try serving it just a bit chilled. Trust me! Most of these wines are priced to be EDDs (every day drinkers) – You’ll find them in the store for just around $10 a bottle, making them totally approachable.
2015 Nobilo Regional Collection Sauvignon Blanc ($13) —> Fresh and crisp with zesty flavors of ripe tropical fruits, peaches and pears. This wine has a great roundness and depth to it – Making it perfect for pairing with smoky grilled chicken or seafood.
Perfect Pairing: Lemon Chicken Skewers with Harissa Yogurt Sauce
Stoller 2015 Dundee Hills Chardonnay ($25) —> This unoaked chardonnay is perfect for summer sipping. Unlike it’s butterbomb cousins, this wine, aged in stainless steel barrels, stands out with its bright acidity and citrus flavors. Try pairing it with a dish that echoes those same lemon-lime flavors.
Perfect Pairing: Lemon Mascarpone Risotto
Casal Garcia Vinho Verde Rosé ($10) —> With a light effervescence, and bursting with notes of cherry and strawberry, this wine is the perfect companion to tangy barbecue sauces or spicy fare.
Perfect Pairing: Peruvian Grilled Chicken with Creamy Green Sauce …
