While many of us San Franciscans emerged our small apartments this morning snuggled up in hats, scarves and 3 layers to protect us from the bitter cold (yes, 50 degrees is bitter cold), believe it or not, it is summertime. In the spirit of the season, I’d like to share a few of my favorites to take your mind off of the cold.
If you’re like me, you’ve jumped at every opportunity to venture out of the city, searching for the sun to warm your soul. Well those of you who’ve managed to make a mini escape – tahoe, Napa, Sonoma – or even the east bay, this one’s for you. Those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about…ie, never had to argue the moot point that “it’s not rain, it’s the fog! ” you’re better off. Either way, I’ve got a short list of a few wines I enjoy on a hot summer day.
2009 Fiddlehead Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Happy Canyon
2010 Domaine Tempier Bandol, France – Rosé
2009 Julien Sunier Morgon Beaujolais, France – 100% Gamay
All of these wines are under under $40 and, as always, if you’re interested in any of the wines, please feel free to reach out!
