The best wines to stock up on for those summer getaways

It’s time to start planning those summer getaways! So who is ready to pack up the car and hit the road for some fun summer getaways? Maybe you and the family will be  heading to your favorite campgrounds to hike, explore some nature and camp under the stars? Or looking forward to the start of summer so you can have a relaxing weekend on the beach and soaking up that warm summer sun. Whatever your  upcoming summer getaway plans may be, one thing you want to be sure is to stock up on those bottles of wine.. So let’s take a peek at a few great summer wines that would be perfect for a summertime nightcap because we all know that warm temps and sipping wine go hand in hand.

 Pinot Noir- Summer is hot and some choose to go with the chilled white wines,  but if your preference is red we recommended Pinot Noir. This is a light bodied red wine so it won’t weigh you down with that hot sticky summer heat. Packed with aromas of raspberries, strawberries and black cherries will make you feel like you are in a summer berry patch. A perfect light wine to enjoy on that summer getaway.

Sauvignon Blanc- A classic summer wine and for good reason. This soft wine has notes of limes,tropical mango and herbs and is quite refreshing on a warm summer evening. Wondering how to keep your wine chilled during your summer getaways with the family? Our Portovino’s have you covered! Our insulated pouches will keep your wine nice and chilled for hours- so it will be ready when you are!

Zinfandel Rose- A sweet, summer and oh so delicious choice. Probably the most popular summer wine and personally, we totally understand why. With sweet flavors of strawberries and cotton candy how can you resist? Served cold so this wine is definitely refreshing on a warm summer night (or really any night for that matter)

Riesling- If you are looking for a perfect balance of sweet and dry-a riesling may be just what you are looking for. A white wine with fruity flavors like apple, pineapple and apricot. A great wine to pair with some delicious grilled chicken or salmon from the grill.

Viognier- A white wine whose aromas will remind you of a warm summer night in the garden. This summer wine has a bit more body than some of the other whites, but is absolutely divine. Packed with tangerine, honeysuckle and vanilla for a one of a kind taste. Cheers

So cheers to your summer getaways wherever the road may take you.We are counting down the days to the start of summer- how about you?  Take the time to enjoy every moment after all you deserve it. We will be sipping our wine and thinking of you - Happy Summer!
