4th of July plans may look a bit different this year than what we are used to, but the good news is that warm weather, cold drinks, and good old fashioned BBQ’s aren’t going anywhere. Whether you’re cooking for that summer suaret in your social bubble or just a couple of burgers for you and a furry friend, we are here to help with reds, whites, and delicious brews ready to complement every person, place and plan!

1. Let's begin with the Reds–

Storybook Mountain Napa Zin Mayacamas Range | A longtime favorite, this Zin has all the classic flavors a Napa Zin offers. Briary fruit and spice along with just the right amount of tannin deliciously complements a juicy Burger with all the fixings. $39

Smoked Brisket:
Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato | A super, "Super Tuscan" that bursts with dark red cherry, plum, spice, new leather and floral notes. The smokiness of the meat will intensify the red fruit flavors of the wine when enjoyed together. $27

Pork ribs:
Famille Perrin Coudoulet de Beaucastel | Nothing goes better with pork than a wine packed with aromatic herbs and wild berry fruit. From the land of the famed Chateauneuf du Pape, this wine reveals black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors along with hints of wild thyme, peppery spice, and lavender. $39

2. Move on to the Summer Whites–

CADE Sauvignon Blanc is a summer staple. The perfect pick for a summer gathering among friends and family. Pick up a case and save 10%!

2018 PlumpJack Chardonnay is as refreshing as it is exquisite. Ideal for a hot summer afternoon on the patio or by poolside.

La Marea "Kristy Vineyard" Albarino is lively and refreshing, sip alongside grilled sea bass, salmon, or swordfish.

J Chardonnay  is bright and fruit forward with a broad lemon custard mid-palate. The oak is spice-driven and integrated, which complements the ripe fruit flavors and bright acidity.

3. Finish up with the Brews–

Fort Point Villager, IPA should be with in reach while you're grilling up your favorite summer sausage or sitting lake or beach-side taking in the fresh-open air
