Though much more cities and states are opening back up, the coronavirus still looms steadily, keeping people closer to home than they want to be. Summer 2020 is shaping up to be a summer to remember, for all the wrong reasons.

Moscato d’Asti

As the easiest wine to drink on this list, Moscato d’Asti is a sweet Italian white wine that is actually way more sophisticated than you might think. When you open the bottle, you’ll find sweet aromas filled with peaches, orange blossoms, and lemon. It has a half-sparkling style that makes it seem a little less sweet than it is. It’s just the refreshing beverage you want for a backyard picnic at dusk.

Provence Rosé

It’s one of the most versatile Rosé styles, so it works for the backyard or a wedding. The best part is, its notes of rose petal pair well with almost anything. You could bring a whole seafood set-up to the park, and this style would match!


Summer’s Here and The Wine is Sparkling Rosé


Zinfandel

Maybe you’re one of those people who needs a red even when it’s monstrously hot outside—that’s okay! Surprisingly, Zinfandel is a great choice for your red wine needs in the summer. It’s a signature American wine that’s juicy, full-bodied, and dry—perfect for that picnic or barbecue.
