Sure, summer pulls you toward whites, but here are two red wines, one from Spain, and one from France, that we love with everything grilled: vegetables, chicken, lamb, beef. . .
We featured Pasqua’s red wine inspired by Romeo & Juliet for Valentine’s Day. Consider this white wine (Bianco) from the same maker the wine to drink for a summer of love. It loves to be paired with meat, especially meat with grill marks. Spice is okay, too, so don’t hold back.
Another summer sipper you can start drinking in spring. This pale pink rosé from one of our favorite producers comes in under $15 and is a joy to drink.
The 2015 Baron de Ley white wine (Viura, Verdejo, and Malvasia) from Rioja is a fantastic bargain. It’s clean on the palate, boosted by a creamy richness unusual in wines at this price point, which is $10, by the way. Unbelievable, we know!
A wine this good under $15 deserves to be bought by the case. Drink it all spring!
