5 Facts about the Best Summer Wines

  1.  A lot of people consider red wine a drink for winter and a rose for summer, but this is not true. In fact, some wine experts think it is just fine to enjoy rose year-round.
  2. Lighter bodied red wines or a chilled bottle of Riesling are appropriate for summer consumption. They can even be the spotlight at your summer meals.
  3. Many diners love to add a delicious wine to compliment their juicy steak or Maryland soft shell crab. Lighter red wines, whites and roses, along with champagne are perfect for warm weather dining.
  4. Wines that are high in acids and have lots of fruit flavor, such as apricots or pears, can fit right in to summer dining plans. When selecting a red wine, look for wines that are grown in cooler climates with a lighter taste. Some of the best bottles are from places like France, Italy, Walla Walla Wine region in Washington state, or Napa Valley and Sonoma County in California.
  5. White wine varieties suited for light summer meals include Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc. If you get tired of sampling roses or just want to try something different, reach for a Riesling. Its taste ranges anywhere from dry to acidic or even sweet. This versatility makes it a terrific pairing with most any type of food in any season. Pair it with some Alaskan Halibut for a real treat.
