Ahhh, wine. My one true love. Whether it’s been a long week at work or I’m enjoying the beautiful weather with friends, there’s honestly nothing more satisfying than opening a chilled bottle of wine on a warm day (or any day, if you ask me). I do wish I knew about wine as a whole but there is one thing I know: What I like, and what I don’t like.

If you’re looking for a new bottle of wine to try, something different for a get together, or don’t know the difference between rosé and red wine but want to give a friend a bottle for their birthday, these are the wines that I drink all summer (and mostly all year!) long.

My Favorite Summer Wines


Simple Life Rosé – A fresh and crisp rosé with tart strawberry, red cherry, cranberry, and jasmine blossom aromas, giving wine citrus and floral flavors.

90+ Cellars Lot 33 Rosé – Medium-light in body, Lot 33 is a dry but fruity rosé with aromas of strawberries and cherries.

Wölffer Estate Summer in a Bottle Rosé 2018 – With bright copper color, this rosé has cantaloupe and pear aromas and is the perfect balance between fruity and acidic.

Domaine Tour Campanets Rosé – With strawberry aromas, this rosé has a fresh, voluptuous flavor, pairing well with red meats, cheese, desserts, and Mediterranean dishes.

Fleur de Mer Rosé – Light, crisp, and refreshing, this classic French Provençal rosé has watermelon, cherry, lavender and subtle citrus aromas. It’s medium bodied and has a refreshing acidity.

Frescobaldi Toscana Alìe Rosé – A pale pink rosé with ruby highlights, Alìe is a perfect blend of Syrah and Vermentino. With white flower, wild strawberry, and citrus peel flavors, it pairs perfectly with Tuscan dishes.

Studio by Miraval Rosé – Strongly influenced by the Mediterranean Sea, this rosé is a pale pink hue with fresh fruit and citrus notes and features and features a fleshy palate.

White Wines

Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc – This classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is a pale yellow with aromas of citrus, tropic fruit, and fresh herbs. The ripe tropical flavors (passion fruit, melon, grapefruit) and crispness pair perfectly with summer salads, shellfish, and asparagus.

Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc – This zesty sauvignon blanc features passion fruit, citrus, and gooseberry notes and is medium to full bodied with a creamy feel.

Bruni Plinio Vermentino – Flowery and fruity with notes of exotic fruits, this vermentino has a fresh yet dry flavor and pairs well with seafood.

Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino – Dry, crisp, and refreshing, this vermentino has almond, citrus, and tropical flavors.

Simple Life Chardonnay – Featuring a juicy, tropical palette, this chardonnay has a bright, creamy texture and a crisp mineral finish. Pairs perfectly with popcorn, melon, and fresh fruit.
