Got Wine?Do you have wine for summer?

Great Beer!
Made Easy!

Ice, Ice Baby!

July 13, 2012

It’s official! Summer is here and it is HOT outside. When the weather is this warm I like to enjoy the sunshine by sipping on a nice chilled wine- like the Selection French Rosé or one of my dwindling stock of Limited Edition Pacific Quartet.

How do I keep these wines nicely chilled on a hot day you ask? My secret is ICE. I have an aluminium ice bucket to keep the bottle of wine cool, and I will put a cube or two of ice in my glass of wine to keep the wine chilled while I enjoy it. 

Now you’re asking is it good wine etiquette to put ice cubes in wine? For some styles like a crisp French Rose ice is perfectly acceptable and for Niagara Mist and Island Mist ice is required!

A little nervous about breaking the ‘rules of etiquette’ ? Make some ice cubes out of wine and you’re ready to go! 

But most importantly- however You enjoy your wine… it’s acceptable  😉

Enjoy the warm weather!
