We loved having Brooke of The Brooke Blend in studio today to talk all things refreshing summer sipping wines! Listen up, then grab one for the patio and create a fabulous summer night.
Albarino Day: Similar to a Sauvignon Blanc. Light, refreshing, bright acidity. Mostly grown in Spain.
Viognier: a full-bodied white wine. Similar to a Chardonnay. Originated in Southern France
Rose: Known as pink wine, it’s become very popular. Made from red grapes, this one has a shorter skin contact period (fermentation) of only a few hours. Winemakers determine what color they want the wine to be!
Pinot Noir: A light red wine perfect for summer. Aug. 18th is national Pinot Noir Day. Originated in Burgundy, France.
Spritzers: Brooke tells us what you can add to wines for sweetness and/or additional flavors.
