A Sweet Guide to Summer Wines

Summer is here and we wanted to let you in on a little secret: there is a sweet wine for every warm weather occasion.

Soft Red Lime | The Sun Seeker

If any wine is made for summer it is Soft Red Lime. This sweet red wine is infused with pure lime extract. Best served over ice with sunshine overhead. Sit with your feet in the sand or treat yourself in the backyard — nothing is better than an easy cocktail in a bottle.

Soft Red | The Grillmaster

Soft Red is really the perfect wine for any occasion, but it is in its element at a backyard barbecue on a warm summer night. Whether you are having burgers or a good old-fashioned BBQ, this just-sweet-enough, fruit-forward red wine will keep you coming back for more. Serve chilled, under patio lights, paired with the hint of smoke from the barbecue in the company of family and good friends.

Soft White | The Life of the Party

The familiar, fresh Niagara grape flavor of Soft White makes it the perfect sweet white wine to bring to a party. Sweet and light with flavors of peach, mango, and honeysuckle, it is bound to be a crowd pleaser. Be the hostess with the most-ess and make the drinks last a little bit longer: combine Soft White with iced tea over ice and stir in fresh, frozen peaches and raspberries. A tropical treat made for friends and a good time!

Soft Rosé | The Brunch Buddy

Soft Rosé is the perfect sweet rosé to accompany a weekend brunch with the girls. Add a little bubbly and lime juice for a brunch cocktail or pack a bottle in a basket for a sweet summer picnic. The fresh, bright strawberry flavors of this crisp, light wine are best paired with relaxing mornings and old friends.
