Hot wines for hot summer nights!

Here in the high mountains of North Carolina, our summertime temperatures typically remain balmy below 80 degrees with little humidity. This year we have ruptured that 80 degree mark far more than I want to think about, but luckily we have a little secret to keeping ourselves cool and relaxed here at Christopher’s Wine & Cheese; we know the wines that work with the heat and don’t break the budget!

This Friday we’re proposing that you come join us and try a few of these wines with us and make some new friends at the same time. We’re going to try Rosé the way Rosé was intended to be done; lots of flavor with a crisp, clean DRY finish!!!! The pure joy of Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand with the explosion of citrus fruits predominated by pink grapefruit will be a sure hit on any hot summer’s night.  A lightly chilled valdiguie will present add a splash of red to your sunset tastings as well with a bounty of dark fruit flavors with just enough spice to keep the color in your cheeks for that poolside party.

We’ll be pouring more wines, but these three should offer you thoughts of relief  as the temperature rises today … and hopefully arouse the desire to accept our proposal to come spend one hot summer’s evening with us as we indulge in our desires of relief through wine to break the sweat of summer!
