Summer offers many occasions to break out a glass of wine and celebrate, but how do you pick the best bottle for a memorable time? We asked experts around Austin for their seasonal recommendations so you’ll be sure to bring the right varietal to every festivity.
“The Work Horse is a blend of merlot and malbec sourced from the High Plains of Texas featuring fruity aromas followed by earthy spice: watermelon, black pepper; dark and rich with a chalky finish. The alcohol is only 12.7 percent, which is very reasonable, especially in the heat of summer."
“The Violet Crown is a Rhone-style blend of grapes from California's Amador County, showcasing balanced floral notes—lavender and orange blossom—blackberries, cherries, and smooth, velvety tannins with a touch of chocolate on the finish. It has a great complexity, [and is] extremely versatile in its pairings with pork, chicken, and red meat.”
