Labor Day is one week away and with it comes barbecues, pool parties, and other fun celebrations! A celebration isn't really a celebration without wine though, is it? So, make sure you know the perfect wine to bring or serve next weekend at your holiday party.
Most Labor Day celebrations include delicious foods on the grill. Chicken, burgers, and steaks are always better when cooked on the grill and they deserve to have the perfect companion.
Here are some amazing pairings:
Chicken, seafood, and veggies - pair with a Pinot Noir Rose which is flavorful and refreshing.
Steaks and burgers - pair with a Classic Cabernet Sauvignon.
Sausage - pair with a Riesling to compliment the intense flavors.
Another wonderful part of Labor Day weekend is swimming! If your celebration is poolside then a Sauvignon Blanc is a great choice. If you're a red wine drinker, you should go with a Pinot Nior while dipping your toes in the water.
Sparkling wines are also a great choice for poolside fun. They are refreshing, bright, and delicious. They pair well with fruit and cheese, or a simple sandwich.
