5 Wines To Drink In Summer

Woman on Wine with Amy Reiley

I’m a firm believe in pairing wines with the seasons. I love a big Chardonnay in front of a crackling fire in late November, but in August? No thank you! Here are my recommendations for 5 wines to drink in summer. They are light, food-friendly and fun and best of all, they are affordable wines perfect for an afternoon break or a house full of guests.

2013 Darting Durkheimer Hockbenn Muskateller Kabinett Trocken
This wine makes a sensationally fun aperitif. It’s light, zippy and juicy with floral aromas and sweet peach flavor balanced by minerality on the finish.

A Rhone blend with a rich mouthfeel and clean finish, it is a white wine so big and serious, even red wine drinkers will beg for a second glass.

2010 Amalaya Gran Corte
This Argentine Malbec blend is a big, rich wine. Its robust flavors are of black currant and chocolate. It offers a hint of sweetness on the mid palate balanced by dark, spicy notes at the back.

2012 La Posta Angel Paulucci Vineyard Malbec
A musky, sexy rendition of Malbec, it has a restrained, Old World style. Its subtle fruit flavors are blackberry, black raspberry and cherry with a hint of mint and spice toward the finish.

2011 Saget La Perriere Marie de Beauregard Chinon
If a wine can smell and taste like a walk in the woods, this is the wine. It has flavors of crushed berries and bramble, pine needles and musk.
