Summer Weather at Springtime!

March 23, 2012

Wine alert- we are having what appears to be and early and warm spring. That means we will be drinking more wine during those warm evenings so, do you have enough wine? Check your cellar. Will you have enough to last the summer?

Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot are just a few ‘all purpose’ reds that will work with the steaks etc done on the grill. Pinot Noir is great with Pork and heavy fish like Salmon. 

Chardonnay is a great all-purpose white wine that will do very well with grilled chicken.

Blush wines and Rosés are great with anything you like to cover with barbeque sauce. They’re great with the zippy tartness of the barbeque sauce.

And don’t forget any style of Niagara Mist and Island Mist– they’re always ‘perfect on the patio’ but also go well with a variety of summer meals from salads to burgers.

Finally, Twisted Mist and Bent Grape are coming back in April. These wine based cocktail kits offer a great alternative to wines. Niagara Mist will have two combo packs (make 15 bottles of two styles) including Pina Colada & Orange Twist and Strawberry Dream and Lemon Kiss. Twisted Mist’s combo pack is Lime Margarita and Hard Pink Lemonade. Each of these styles will be perfect for the summer heat.

So there you have it- Lots of options to choose from and each one will be perfect for summer. Time to get your carboys filled!
