When I read about Wino Wednesday over at Natalie’s spot, I knew I had to participate. I love trying new wines, and I can’t wait to check out the linkup to get some recommendations! I tend to stick with Pinot Grigio, and I get in the habit of buying my favorite 3 brands over and over again. But if it ain’t broke…
Yesterday was my 26th birthday! Woah. I don’t know what 26 is supposed to feel like, but I love it so far. We had a barbecue after I ran the Broad Street 10-miler on Sunday and it was so nice to celebrate in the beautiful weather with my friends and family : ) Plus… everyone brought gifts! One of which happened to be this week’s wine: Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio.
I drink a LOT of Pinot. I’ll always order it at restaurants, even if I’m having a dish that normally calls for red. I don’t care. I know what I like, and I don’t like to waste time or money drinking something I don’t. That being said, my current favorite is definitely Santa Margharita!
“This dry white wine has a straw yellow color. Its clean, intense aroma and bone-dry taste (with an appealing flavor of Golden Delicious apples) make Santa Margharita’s Pinot Grigio a wine of great personality and versatility.” (via)
Honestly, this wine is delicious all year round – but absolutely perfect for enjoying outside on a beautiful summer night. I love the crispness of the first sip, and the subtle citrus aftertaste. It’s especially fantastic if you’ve paired it with dinner from the grill!
What’s your favorite summer wine? Do you get stuck on the same brand over & over again?
