Best Wines for the Beach & Backyard
The sun is out, the weather is warm, the pool is open and we have hand selected the best wines for you to enjoy poolside or at the beach. These ‘shore-bets’ have been gathered together to compliment any summer gathering. Try these crowd pleasers - long live summer!

Arca Nova Vinho Verde – white light bodied
Vinho Verde translates literally as green wine. Pale green in color, this wine offers flavors of lemon zest and fresh fruit. It’s great with seafood and shellfish and anything spicy.

Ranga Ranga Sauvignon Blanc – white light bodied
Ranga Ranga, meaning gentle breeze, is grown only half a mile from the sea. The cool, breezy climate gives this wine its crispness. A classic with lemongrass and lime zest, try enjoying this wine with chicken, shellfish, flaky fish and green salads.

Bex Riesling – white light bodied
This riesling is the perfect balance between fruit and minerality. With a slight effervescence and a twist off top, enjoy BEX on the beach, the porch or as an accompaniment to light or spicy cuisine.

Cest La Vie Rose’ – white medium bodied
This light and fruity wine pairs incredibly well with a wide range of food. And, the label is super hip! Pair this easy-drinker with chicken, fish, light appetizers or assorted cheeses.

Graham Beck Brut – sparkling
What’s a summer celebration without a little bubbly? This sparkling wine is a palate pleaser. Pair with dessert, light meats, and a fun night!
