It's summertime and the livin' is easy!

It’s finally here! Summertime! It’s June 1, the weekend weather was warm and sunny, and even though it’s not yet officially summer according to the calendar, we think it’s time to start thinking about summer wine selections.

This week we are featuring a few of our current favorites – two whites and two reds – all perfect summertime sippers.

Dupueble Beaujolais 2013
Region: Beaujolais
Appellation: Beaujolais
100% Gamay

The elegance, freshness, bright fruit, and utter quaffability of this beautiful wine will immediately blow you away. One glass is never enough.

Dupeuble Beaujolais Blanc 2013

Region: Beaujolais
Appellation: Beaujolais
100% Chardonnay

A charming un-oaked Chardonnay with a crisp and vibrant character. The perfect weeknight white.

The wines of Dupeuble represent some of the best values in the Beaujolais today and are widely regarded for their very high quality and eminently reasonable price.

Graville Lacoste 2013
Region: Bordeaux
Appellation: Graves
75% Sémillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Muscadelle

The Graville-Lacoste property is known primarily for its stony soil composition and fresh minerality.

This Graves is distinguished by its high percentage of Sémillon, sourced from vineyards in the greatest white wine terroir in Bordeaux. Try this crisp, invigorating blanc with a platter of fresh seafood.

Le Pigeoulet Rouge 2013
Region: Southern Rhone, France
Appellation: Vin de Pays de Vaucluse
Grenach, Syrah, Carnignan

A quintessential Provençal quaffer from the Brunier brothers, from their plots of vines in both the Côtes du Ventoux and Côtes du Rhône. Fresh, fruity and elegant.

The wines of Le Pigeoulet des Brunier offer more affordable, everyday cuvées under the designation Vin de Pays de Vaucluse. The wines are fresh, rich in fruit, pleasantly representative of their terroir, and are easy to appreciate young.
