Wanna get sophisticated and a bit fancy this summer? Spring for a Chablis (the one pictured is one of my all-time favorites)!

Splurge for some this summer!

Another cheap, accessible, fun, carefree summer wine is Gruner Veltliner, from Austria. It is an amazing “first wine of the night” if you’re on a tasting tear and a nice, elegant white wine that thrives with a chill. Get your summer night started off with one soon!
