Red, White, & Rose: It's A Grape Party This Memorial Day!
The unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day is traditionally a time to honor those who have served, or currently serve this nation at home and abroad. We can’t think of a better way to say thank you than with a hearty salute with some fantastic wines.
All that toasting is sure to work up an appetite, which is why Memorial Day is typically celebrated with beach and backyard parties, serving up delicious BBQ staples. And it’s hard to argue with the restorative power of enjoying a glass (or two) of wine on a warm day alongside lip-smacking BBQ fare. From creamy white wines to spicy, berry forward reds, the right glass can make your day all the more relaxing and amazing. Whether you’re grilling up veggie kebabs, or cooking up burgers in the backyard, here are some fire wines that will enliven your holiday barbecue.
