Summer is here. With just those three words, you open up a world of warm weather gatherings with family and friends. When you add Biltmore Wines to the mix, you’ve got a great recipe for outdoor entertaining!
“Wines can be a great accompaniment to summer, so don't overlook the possibilities of refreshing and food-friendly pairings,” said Heather Jordan, wine marketing director. “Especially if you’re planning an outside event like a barbecue, picnic, or pool party.”
For special summer holidays like the 4th of July, we’ve created our Red, White & Blue Trios to pair perfectly with food, fun, and fireworks. Whether you prefer still or sparkling wines, there’s a trio that’s perfect for your celebration:
Red, White & Blue Still Wine Trio
- Vanderbilt Reserve 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
- Biltmore Estate American White Blend
- Biltmore Reserve 2015 NC Chardonnay
Red, White & Blue Sparkling Wine Trio
“Sparkling wines are really exciting for summer,” Heather said, “and you can easily create all kinds of bubbly cocktails like our Sparkling Blackberry Punch. You can make one for yourself, or mix up a batch ahead of time to enjoy at your next outdoor gathering.”
Tip: if you're mixing a larger amount for a group, wait until just before serving to add our Pas de Deux Moscato so the bubbles don't dissipate too soon.
