Summer Sippers

Life has been keeping us busy this summer and while that has meant fewer blog posts, that doesn't mean we aren't enjoying lots of great food, wine and fun activities! With the warm weather (finally!), we have been enjoying some great new white wines that are perfect for summer meals or just relaxing by the pool. Here are a couple of our favorites.

Bonterra Riesling

Not only does Bonterra have a fresh, exciting new label. They have also added some great new varietals to their organic wine line-up. We tried the 2009 Riesling which has delicate aromas of pear, peach and honey and delicious classic riesling flavors. All of Bonterra's wines are farmed organically and they are some of the best organic wines for the price. You can find them online at Bonterra. Retails for about $12.

Three Pears Pinot Grigio
As if their Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc wasn't a great summer sipper itself, Randy and Megan Mason had to come up with another refreshing and pleasing wine called Three Pears Pinot Grigio. 2009 is the first release of this bright, fruity palate pleaser. Great aromas and flavors of peach, pear and apple...maybe that's where the three pears name comes from? Find online at Mason Cellars. This wine retails for about $10.
