Brooklyn Winery’s Summer Wine Guide

 

As we approach the hottest days of summer, you may be turning to crisp white wine for outdoor activities and refreshing reds for chilling out in the air conditioning.

No matter how you choose to enjoy the final days of the season, there’s a bottle of wine perfectly suited to the occasion. 

Visit our online store to shop all our wines by the bottle, or stock up for all your festivities with our Summer Wine Bundle. Then read on for some of our favorite wine party themes and get ready to have fun in the sun!

 

 

For Your BBQ Bash

A backyard BBQ with all your friends is the perfect time to try out some fun wine pairings. The savory char from the grill pairs beautifully with red wine, like our light Cuvee Noir for grilled vegetables or chicken, and our bold Malbec for burgers and red meat. For white wine lovers, you can’t go wrong with our Unoaked Chardonnay, a versatile white that pairs with nearly anything, especially those great side dishes like pasta salad and corn. 

 

 

For an Epic Pool Party

Pool all day means Rosé all day! Enjoy the bright flavors of watermelon and grapefruit in this refreshing summer wine, all while snacking on your favorite poolside treats. Try pairing our Rosé with fresh fruit and cheese – we recommend the classic combo of watermelon and feta! 

 

 

For Catching Up on Those Summer Flicks

Whether you’re hiding under the covers watching Jaws or binging Outer Banks, you can’t deny that a lazy afternoon in the refreshing AC is a real treat. Pour a glass of fruit-packed Barbera and order yourself a pizza for ultimate pampering, or try our dry Riesling for something that’s packed with all the sweet flavors of summer. 

 

 

For Lounging on the Beach

Breathe in the fresh sea air and sip on our Albariño, which has an unmistakable salinity that pairs beautifully with an afternoon on the beach. Similarly, our Sauvignon Blanc has a bright crispness that balances aromas of tropical fruit and lemongrass. Pair both of these wines with a salty snack like potato chips or nuts and enjoy the ocean breeze!

 

 

For a Boozy Brunch at Home

Pop the bubbles, it’s brunch time! Our Blanc de Blancs is the perfect way to start your day, and its crisp bubbles complement your favorite brunch dishes like rich eggs benedict and fluffy french toast. But let’s be honest, it’s perfect all on its own! And when you’re ready to switch things up, wind down with a glass of our beautiful Pinot Grigio Ramato, a vibrant copper-colored wine that will give you all the sunset vibes. 

No matter how you’re closing out the summer, keep your wine rack stocked with your favorite bottles and you’ll be ready to celebrate the season! Then show us how you’re enjoying your wine by tagging us @brooklynwinery in your photos!
