Enjoy summer with a tasteful selection of refreshing wines!
Summertime is wine time. It’s a refreshing addition to any party – day or night, a cool way to relax with your closest people, or a soothing companion for those who want a little me-time on a warm summer night. But the season doesn’t call for just any wine; to beat the heat you need to go light and crisp.
Colour isn’t really a major factor when choosing a wine for summer, you can let your preferences or meal pairings lead the way there. What you do need to look for though is the alcohol content. Low-alcohol wines with good acidity are your best choice. A bright rosé is usually an all-rounder and pairs well with a variety of foods, but if you’re leaning towards a white, pick one that’s fruity or grab a mineral white wine. Red lovers can opt for something that’s chillable, but definitely high on acid and easy on the tannins.
