Sarah Pierre, describes summer wines that Beat the Heat as crisp and fruity that keeps you feel cool, “They are like tiny superheroes disguised as bottles. Essentially the results you get from an ice-cold lemonade are what you’ll get from these wines...minus the sugar. How can you not love that? Remember, staying cool and hydrated doesn't have to be boring (and should also include water), you can do it with a little style and sophistication. Embrace the beaming sun rays with a glass of wine in hand and a thirst for exploration. Join me as we explore different regions, grape varietals, and styles that will have you questioning all that you’ve ever known about wine.”
“There’s something about the outdoor potluck/barbecue/picnic, what have you, that screams community and nostalgia. For me there's always overcooked pasta salad, sticky sweet pie, cheap beer, and grocery store wine (if you’re that lucky). But no one really cares all that much about the objective, or subjective, quality of what’s on the table, because they have good company and fireworks. Those gatherings come with such fond memories that there’s little more that I’d ever want out of a summer shindig.”
Avoiding the pretension and inaccessibility of the big corporate bottles, bistros pour wine that is meant to be enjoyed in the moment, on the table across from friends, family, lovers, and new acquaintances.This style of wine can sometimes be maligned or misrepresented as 'chuggable' or termed 'glou-glou' for its gulpability, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
