Picnic wine to enjoy this Spring and Summer Posted On 15 April 2021

Meeting friends and family outside is even better with a good quality vino

 

With up to six people able to meet in back gardens and outdoors, and the weather slowly warming up, it’s a perfect time for picnics and BBQs at home (in your back garden) and out and about. So let’s have a look at some great wines, perfect to share.

 

Chin Chin, Vinho Verde

The legendary Chin Chin Vinho Verde from Quinta do Ermizio in Northern Portugal. The team from Noble Rot work with Antonio Monteiro at his 15 hectare farm to import this spritzy white, bursting with energy.

Slap an awesome label on it from local artist Jose Miguel Mendez and you’ve got  a viral wine sensation on your hands!

 

Burlesque White Zinfandel Rose

Luscious strawberry ice cream on the nose supported by a bright, berry fruited palate and an off-dry finish.

Boutinot has been working with growers in California for over 10 years, constantly sourcing the best value from vintage to vintage, increasingly with specific estates sourcing old vine material that represents the best possible value for money. The current pair of wines are sourced from the warm region of Lodi in Central California.

 

19 Crimes Snoop Dogg Cali Red Blend

Full and dense, with strong black & blue fruit notes up front from the Petite Sirah, complemented by bright red, slightly candied fruit in the background from the Zinfandel. The darkly toasted oak ties it all together along with a slightly sweet finish.

19 Crimes is defiant by nature, bold in character, and always uncompromising. We are proud to partner with entertainment icon, Snoop Dogg, who embodies all these qualities, and more, through hard work and perseverance. Snoop Dogg is a culture creator, innovator, and a leader in pop culture.
