Jun 05, 2024Katharine Warner

Summer is here, and with it comes balmy evenings, sizzling barbecues, and refreshing days by the pool (or the lake). But what wine should you be reaching for when the temperature soars? Fear not, wine lovers! Three Brothers Wineries and Estates has you covered, with a selection of summer-perfect wines that will quench your thirst and tantalize your taste buds.

Light and White for Long Days:

  • Unoaked Chardonnay: Our unoaked Chardonnay boasts a crisp, clean finish that's ideal for a hot day. Flavors of citrus and stone fruit dance on the palate, making it a delicious partner to grilled fish, light salads, or even on its own as an afternoon refresher.

  • Sauvignon Blanc: A summer staple, our Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with bright flavors of grapefruit, lime, and tropical fruit. Its refreshing acidity cuts through rich flavors, making it a perfect complement to grilled chicken or a summer charcuterie board.

Rosé All Day:

  • Cabernet Franc Dry Rosé: This delightful rosé is made with 100% estate Cabernet Franc grapes resulting in a beautiful pink hue and a light, fruity taste. Fresh strawberry and melon notes supported by bright acidity make it a fantastic choice for sipping poolside or pairing with grilled burgers and Italian sausage.

Thinking Beyond the Expected:

  • 2019 Brut: No summer celebration is complete without bubbles! Our 2019 Brut Méthode Traditionnelle is a delightful blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, offering a touch of sweetness balanced by crisp acidity. Enjoy it as an aperitif, or pair it with lighter fare like fresh seafood or fruit salad.

Don't Forget the Reds!

While some might shy away from reds in the summer, a pinot noir can be the perfect choice. Our 2021 Pinot Noir is light-bodied and fruit-forward, with flavors of cherry and jammy strawberries. It's best served slightly chilled, making it a great match for grilled flank steak or lighter pasta dishes.

Summer Sipping Tips:

  • Chill it Down: Most summer wines are best served well-chilled. Aim for a temperature between 45-55 degrees Fahrenheit for whites and rosés, and slightly cooler for sparkling wines.

  • Embrace Lighter Fare: Pair your summer wines with lighter dishes like grilled fish, salads, and fresh vegetables. 

  • Don't Forget the Sunshine: There's nothing quite like enjoying a glass of wine on a beautiful summer day. So grab your favorite Three Brothers Wineries & Estates bottle, find a cozy spot outdoors, and soak up the sunshine!
