We all know that there is nothing better than a warming glass of red wine on a cold winter’s night, sipped in front of the fire place or in a steamy bubble bath, but don’t be too quick to cross reds off of your summer wine list.  Choose something tart, fruity, light bodied and best served chilled. Here’s a great option from Silver Vines Winery located in Arvada, Colorado.

Bring out the taste of summer with a glass of Riesling from Balistreri Vineyards located in Denver, Colorado. It is cool and refreshing, with clean stone fruit and balanced acidity. The great thing about Riesling is that it is both a crowd pleaser and super food-friendly, pairing well with anything from cherry pie to spicy barbeque.

SUMMER=ROSE. The words are basically synonymous. Rose comes in many styles, from Sangiovese or Zinfandel to Pinot Noir, which pretty much just means that there is a Rose for everyone’s particular palate. Rose pairs nicely with summer favorites like burgers, strawberries and seafood, like this one from The Infinite Monkey Theorem Urban Winery located in Denver, Colorado, with a new location in Austin, Texas.
