What makes a wine patio-worthy? What do we mean when we deem a bottle a summer sipper? Jodie has curated six perfect wines for summer entertaining, great for sipping outdoors with friends on a warm afternoon or paired with typical patio—especially grilled things, cheeses, dips, and fresh seasonal veggies. 

The Wines

Camino de Navaherreros ‘Bernabeleva’ Garnacha 2016
Medium Body, Rustic
Flavors of stewed fruits; herbacious and mineral-driven.A fresh take on Garnacha (aka Grenache) from an up-and-coming region that toes the line between elegance and rusticity.

Anne-Sophie Dubois Gamay ‘Alchimiste’ 2016
Lighter Body, Finessed
Flavors of ripe red currant, clove, earth.Deliciously complex, this is an everyday treat from a rising star in the heart of one of France’s most iconic regions.

Quinta do Ameal Loureiro 2016
Lighter Body, Crisp
Flavors of lemon pith, lime zest, gravel minerality. This crowd-pleasing bottle departs from Vinho Verde’s ubiquity with deep minerality and the freshest citrus fruit around.

Ulacia Txakolina Rosado
Light Body, Bright, Refreshing
Flavors of green strawberry, rose petal, chalk.Unripe red fruit notes keep this classic Northern Spanish taberna wine lean and mean. Best consumed in large quantities.

In the Red-Only Box... 

IBY Blaufrankisch ‘Classic’
Fuller Body, Complex
Flavors of dark blueberry, white pepper, licorice.Brilliantly ruby-hued, this native Austrian variety is a lovely Pinot Noir alternative with just a bit more grip and power.

Noelia Ricci Sangiovese 2016
Medium Body, Elegant
Flavors of Ripe red cherry, warm spice and tobacco.A pure, perfectly balanced expression of one of Italy’s most important grapes from an overlooked region.
