“Wine cheers the sad, revives the old, inspires the young, makes weariness forget his toil.” — Lord Byron
Is it sweltering where you are? It’s summer and I’m currently in Ontario where there’s plenty of vineyards out here. What are the best wines to have on hot days? Refreshing wines when the temperature is hot (blistering, scorching, baking…insert your appropriate description based on just how hot it actually is where you are) are a great way to endure the heat. If you need suggestions, I got it covered.
Unfortunately for all of you die-hard “red wine only people”, wines for hot days are almost always whites or dry rose wines. Yes, I used to be one of you, but I expanded my horizons a number of years back. I still prefer reds but not when it’s 104 out. If you are a red wine only kind of guy/gal, give these whites a shot. They all have great, refreshing flavor but they are not wimpy wines. This Donnafugata white wine from #winesofsicily is so refreshing in a hot summer day. It’s so light, refreshing and perfect for a light Italian meal. You can find Sicilia DOC wines at your local wine shop and on restaurant menus, look for Sicilia DOC on the label.
My dress is from TOV.HOLY via Nordstrom and unfortunately is not available anymore 🙁 Here’s the similar option though.
