Wines for the Weekend

July 29, 2011

Well, the August long weekend is here and the weather is going to be perfect. The sun is out and the temperature is in the double digits. Fire up the barbecue and open that bottle of wine.

Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec and Zinfandel will all be perfect with grilled steaks (Click here for our Blog on How to Grill a Steak). Pinot Noir will work perfectly with grilled pork and heavy fish like salmon. And it’s hard to go wrong when matching a white wine- as long as they’re chilled they’ll be great on the patio with chicken and seafood.

There’s White Zinfandel, Island Mist and Twisted Mist to enjoy as well. All you need with them is a large glass of ice!

If the heat starts getting to you- you can start cooling your thoughts by thinking of Christmas entertaining. Have you checked your cellar to see if you have enough wine for the Holiday Season? I like to follow the philosophy of “Live for today, but don’t run out of wine.”

Enjoy the long weekend and the rest of this wonderful summer!
