Warmer weather is upon us and there is no better time to open a bottle of wine – or two. Here are three bottles of wine that are perfect for quintessential springtime activities.
First Dinner on the Patio
One of life’s simple pleasures is dining al fresco. A cool breeze, exquisite food and a glass of Pinot Noir is all you need for the perfect night out.
A Pinot Noir found in Sonoma, California will complement the fresh air and carefree ambiance. With a smooth finish and ripe fruit flavors, this layered Pinot Noir is best when enjoyed with a perfectly seared Filet Mignon.
After You Finish Spring Cleaning
After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, a spring cleaning session around the house is necessary. But, we don’t know what’s more rewarding – a spotless home or the first sip of the much-deserved glass of wine.
Kick back and relax in your sparkling household with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. This selection is crisp, bright and bursting with grapefruit flavors. A glass of Sauvignon Blanc will quench your thirst, soothe tired muscles and add a spring to your step. Try a glass from New Zealand; it’s delightful on its own but also drinks beautifully with a post-tidying snack like lighter seafood, cheese and salads.
Memorial Day BBQ
There’s nothing quite like an All-American Memorial Day Barbecue. Since the holiday is typically spent outdoors, an approachable wine like Zinfandel is just the ticket.
With jammy blackberry and milk chocolate flavors, Zinfandel is easy to drink and makes a great pair for traditional BBQ favorites like ribs, burgers, grilled hot dogs and steak.
