Most of us look forward to the summer season because it presents us with the perfect opportunity to head out to the beach, get that much-awaited summer tan, and have some fun in the water. Summer is beach season for sure, but more than that, it’s also wine and cider season! No matter where or how you spend the warmer months of the year, wine and cider become an essential and invariable part of the equation without question! It’s that time of the year when almost everyone looks forward to getting together with friends and delving into refreshing beverages amid an alfresco dining affair.
But which Beverage should you be drinking this summer season? Let’s find out!

WhiteIf your palate seems to be craving a refreshing citrusy hit to beat the summer heat, Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery 2019 Unoaked Chardonnay is the one for you. This wine features 100% Chardonnay from Essex County. When you take the first sip, crisp grapefruit acidity excites a burst of flavours from apple, pear and pineapple on a luscious green melon palate. This wine finishes just the right way – bright and crisp.
Windswept Northern Spy Pét-Nat
Decadent and refreshingly a wild ferment, pétillant naturel, is for the hot summer months!

Instead, the fruity flavour has a spicy note that resembles roasted bell pepper’s taste. Interestingly, as soon as you sip the wine, it will taste like a mixture of blueberry pie and chocolate, which finishes off with a lovely balance of fruit and acidity.
