Karen’s Picks: Hello, Summer Wines!

2016-07-11-mosiac

As much as I love sweet indulgences, I adore wine—and the long summer nights are an ideal time to sip and savor some of my favorite finds.

1. Sommariva di Conegliano Prosecco Brut NV – Italy:
I love the bubbles, complexity and overall value of this Prosecco.  It feels like I’m having a great Champagne.

2. Sangria Blanco:
Our refreshing homemade white wine sangria from Extraordinary Desserts includes white grape juice, fresh oranges, kiwis and limes. It is served in a carafe for 2, which is perfect for sharing on a hot, summer date night out.

3. Bodega Garzon Albarino 2014 – Uruguay:
From one of my favorite vacation spots, this wine has bright citrus with tropical notes and great acidity. You don’t need much more than a glass and an opener to enjoy this super priced South American beauty.

4. Wild Thing Rendezvous Rose 2014 by Carol Shelton – Mendocino, CA:
This wine is produced from wild yeasts found on organically grown grapes. Rich, cranberry colored rose that is dry and refreshing with strawberry and watermelon aromas and a hint of pink grapefruit. Perfect for a beach rendezvous.

5. Chateau Miraval Rose 2015 – Cote de Provence, France:
Soft blush color that is bright with raspberries, peaches and white flowers. True romance in a bottle. Nothing less expected from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Provence vineyard.

6. Magnolia Pinot Noir 2014 by Krutz Family Cellars – Sonoma Coast, CA:
I love this red wine because of its earthy, spicy and balanced silky tannins. Some juice of red fruit and plum with coffee over a long finish.  Enjoy with or without food, and it is spectacular with cheese.

Cheers!
