In the words of a sweet 90’s rapper: Summer, summer, summertime. Time to sit back and unwind!
Although I love scarves, corduroys, bonfires and big, bold reds… I love warmer weather and cooler wine. We have an incredible selection of cool, fun, interesting, different and affordable summer wines at Meza Wine Shop.
Here are a few of my favorites…
1. Hofer H&M Gruner Veltliner
Ok, this is a summer-summer-summertime necessity for all of Meza’s staff! We order this stuff by the case. This Austrian white is so fresh with bright, tropical fruit. You’ll get a little apple and pear with lemongrass and white peppercorn. It’ll leave you with that, “I want more” wet rock taste (trust me, it’s delicious!) Such a drinkable and friendly summer wine. Get it while we have it at just $17.99 a bottle.
2. Broadbent Vinho Verde
This bright, smooth Portuguese wine will rock your non-existent summer socks off and help you sit back and unwind. It’s clean, balanced, crisp, fresh and full of citrus flavor! Full of zesty lemon and a little effervescence, it has a cool, lime green color and would be superb for lunch, picnics or day-time drinking. You’ll find this steal with our value rack price at just $10.99.
3. Chateau Morgues Du Gres Galets Rosé
In the words of DJ Jazzy Jeff, “There’s an air of love and of happiness, and this is the Fresh Prince's new definition of summer madness.” This yummy, deep ruby rosé is the definition of summer madness. You’ll get blackberries, licorice, mineral, charcoal, fruit bouquet and juicy spices on the nose and palate. It’ll go great with whatever you plan to cook on the grill tonight. Just let me know what time I should be over and I’ll bring the wine. Retails at $14.99 at Meza!
4. Schlosskellerei Gobelsburg Zweigelt
This light, Austrian red will leave you searching for other DJ Jazzy Jeff tunes as you sip away on its glorious flavor. With some almond, sweet cherry and pepper, you’ll love how balanced, youthful and lean this wine smells and tastes. What’s really cool about this wine is that it’s from one of the oldest wineries in all of Austria, with vines dating back to 1171. A delicious piece of history you can pick up at Meza for just $18.99.
These are just a few of the yummy wines you don’t want to miss out on this summer. Whether you’re like me and on summer break from class, playing hooky from work, “working from home…”, watching your children (and 30 others) at the pool, or enjoying a weekend of grilling in the back yard, Meza has all the wine you need.
PS I definitely need a good bottle of wine because I just realized that the song “Summertime” is 19 years old.
Until Next Time,
