St. Super Dollarhide Sauvignon Blanc

Let’s not pretend that it’s anything other than hot as hell outside and whatever wine I drink needs to be ice cold for the foreseeable future – this totally fits the bill. A lot of people don’t get turned on when they think about an off dry sparkling red wine, but this is the real deal, a perfect bottle for scorching hot days that turn into scorching hot nights. It’s great on its own but it pairs with just about anything. Still need convincing? This was said to be Cleopatra’s favorite wine. Bam!

Regis Bouvier Marsannay Rosé

I don’t know what’s wrong with me but somehow summer 2018 has turned into the summer of sauvignon blanc. I just can’t get enough of it, and out of all of them this one has become my favorite. It’s so ripe and tropical, like a big fruit salad in my mouth. Notes of white peach, papaya, pineapple, and a tiny dollop of whipped cream.

Tenuta la Pergola Monferrato Rosso

Wines don’t always have to be expensive to be great. This little blend of barbera, dolcetto, bonarda, fresia, and croatina is the ultimate Tuesday night pizza wine. It’s bright and fruity with strong notes of blackberry, rosemary, black pepper, and plums. It’s become one of my go-to’s and I think it’ll become one of yours too.

Trimbach Reserve Pinot Gris

Real talk – this is probably the best wine I’ve ever had. You can taste the sweet, juicy apple and it’s the perfect thing on hot summer days. I’ve always liked pinot gris, but until I had this one, I never knew just how amazing they could be. Once you’ve had this one, it’ll be hard to go back to anything else again!

Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

Rich and complex, with layered notes of brown butter, Opal apples, toasted nuts, and Easter lilies, it’s beset with gentle aromas of wood smoke and white fruits. For those who’ve never enjoyed chardonnay, I encourage you to make the splurge for this bottle. It’s an incredible wine and will open your palate to a new range of flavors.

Les Darons

A blend of syrah, grencache, and carignan, this red blend from the south of France is bursting with energy and character. The nose is full of smoky, tobacco notes with a touch of dark red fruit. On the palate, black currant, blackberry, leather, and strawberry mingle with subtle spices on the finish. I recommend pairing this with pork or anything else you decide to grill this summer.
