June Urban Sampler: Summer Refreshments
We are beyond ready for summer, and we’ve hand-picked some of our favorite fresh and crushable wines for you to enjoy on hot Saturday evenings by the grill.
*2W* 2019 AB Valley Opcao Superior Vinho Verde (Minho, Portugal)
Vinho Verde is a go-to for summer: light, crisp, and slightly fizzy, the wine has the low alcohol that makes it a perfect afternoon sipper.
2020 Cantina Santa Maria La Palma Alghero "Aragosta" Rose (Alghero, IT)
The “lobster rosé” has returned, and the 2020 vintage is just delicious! This bright rosé is a perfect pairing for shellfish.
*1R* 2020 Domaine St Cyr "La Galoche" Beaujolais (Burgundy, FR)
One of our favorite summertime red grapes is Gamay: fruity and fresh with notes of juicy red and black berries, it’s great when served slightly chilled.
*2R* 2017 Sandy Bank Pinot Noir (California)
Fresh-caught salmon on the grill tonight? Pop this bottle of Cali Pinot and enjoy its smooth texture, soft red fruits, and savory-sweet hints of vanilla.
