Foodie Friday #summerwines


This Foodie Friday is all about WINE!!!

It is summer time and that means relaxing at the beach or chilling by the pool.

We also love cookouts during these longer days.

We are still technically in a pandemic, but I think it has gotten a little easier to navigate. Social events are happening but for the most part, we like to be outside.

Hotter temps mean choosing wines that are lower in alcohol, lighter in body, refreshing flavor, and pair well with BBQ and other grilled foods.

Vines to Wine (www.vinestowineacademy.com ) hosted a class and introduced several different wines that I am now going to my list of summer wines.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cotes de Provence Blanc

TOW comment: Light with fruity notes. Would go well with grilled chicken or dessert

Riesling

TOW comment: Light sweet with medium acidity. Medium finish

Pinto Noir Rose

TOW comment:  fresh and a little fruity with a short finish.

Beaujolais-Villages

TOW comment: dry with cherry notes. Would go well with salmon

All of the wines we tried were good but I think my favorite was the Cote de Provance. I liked the smooth, long finish.

It’s great to go to wine tastings because you can discover wines that best match your palate!
