It’s officially summer and that means it’s time for some outdoor activities! We’re big fans of a good ol’ fashioned picnic, down to the baskets and cute blanket. And what goes better with a picnic than some wine?
The thing about picnics is everything needs to be compact and transportable, which is why canned wine is a really lovely addition. Right now we’re feeling the canned Rosé from Tangent Wines – it’s a high-quality wine in a cute little container. This little buddy packs all the joy from our favorite summer water into a can without sacrificing any flavor or quality.
When you do your obligatory grocery store stop to pick up the veggies and dip, grab a bottle of Chenin Blanc to go along with it. It’s commonly described as a “summery white” and the strong fruit and citrus notes make it a lovely pairing with those carrots and cauliflower. Bonus points if you go with an herby or creamy dip to go with them! Make sure it’s a screw top!
Another solid picnic fave is boxed wine. More bang for your buck which is ideal for a group scenario, of course, but let’s be honest, it’s also just fun. We stan Bota Box for many reasons: it’s affordable, it’s delicious, and there are plenty of varietals to choose from. White wines tend to be more drinkable for summer so we recommend the Pinot Grigio, either the standard or the Breeze.
Now you know we could never forget the bubbly, especially since every day in summer is a cause for celebration! We love to drink sustainably so a recyclable can is the choice. Check out Pop+Fizz’s canned sparkling white wine for a delightfully refreshing picnic bev. It’s fruity and aromatic but not overwhelming which means you can hang out and have a few before it’s time for that afternoon nap in the sun.
Don’t forget an ice pack to keep your vinos chilled. Or even better, how about some reusable ice cubes? They stay cold without diluting your wine or making a mess in the bag, and they’re good for the earth!
However you choose to picnic, remember to hydrate and wear your sunscreen!
