Got Wine?Do you have wine for summer?

Great Beer!
Made Easy!

Only 6 Months til Christmas!

June 26, 2010

BruceNow that summer is officially here, it’s hot out and the mosquitos are running rampant in your yards, I have one question for you. Do you have your Christmas wines started?

I’m not looking forward to winter, but the truth is if you don’t consider your future wine needs now, you may not have enough when Christmas entertaining starts.

CalenderThe nice thing about cellar planning is that you always get to walk to your wine rack and have a selection to choose from. If you start the wine now you will have nicely aged wine come the Holiday Season.

I’ll recommend a couple of my favourites which if started right away will be perfect come December:

For a red I suggest the Selection Estate Series Sonoma Valley Pinot Noir it has broad appeal and will go well with lots of different foods. For white try the Selection Estate Series Mosel Valley Gewurztraminer it will be perfect with Turkey Dinner.

Now back to the present… It’s a beautiful summer day- perfect for a glass of Island Mist Green Apple Riesling! (Island Mist is on sale until July 3rd, 2010)
