Summer Soirée

Summer is for spur-of-the-moment gatherings, and that calls for versatile wines. We asked four local winemakers for their top picks.

ANGELS GATE ARCHANGEL CHARDONNAY BRUT VQA

"I always have a few bottles of this dry sparkler on hand in summer. Apart from greeting your guests with a glass of sparkling wine, it’s also great for when friends drop by unexpectedly. What better way to catch up than over a glass of bubbly?"

Philip Dowel, winemaker
Angels Gate

 

SIBLING RIVALRY WHITE VQA

"This versatile white blend goes with just about anything — grilled chicken, pasta, vegetables — so it’s ideal for casual get-togethers."

Sandrine Bourcier, winemaker
Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery

 

CAVE SPRING DRY ROSÉ VQA

"Bright strawberry aromas and red berry flavours make our versatile rosé a perfect pairing with grilled vegetables, sausages or salmon. Keep a bottle chilled for when friends pop over for a no-fuss barbecue."

Angelo Paven, winemaker
Cave Spring

 

SOUTHBROOK SERIOUSLY COOL RED VQA

"Fruit-forward, with a slightly earthy tone, this red blend is as casual as a day on the dock. I recommend placing it in the cooler for 15 minutes before serving. Then simply open and enjoy. That’s what summer’s all about."

Ann Sperling, winemaker
Southbrook Winery
