A SELECTION OF CHIC SUMMER WINES
FROM ROBERTA MORRELL
BY / JENIFER LANG
Summer hit full force this week (“Where are my shorts? Where did I hang that cute dress I bought at the end of August?”). It’s time to think about eating outside, dusting off the grill, cocktails with umbrellas and, of course, summer wine.
I called my friend Roberta Morrell, of the perennially chic MORRELL WINE in Rockefeller Center to ask for her advice on what wines to stock up on for summer entertaining. She came up with a brilliant selection, heavy on rosé, which is exactly right. Rosé wine has become hyper trendy in the last few years, because it’s light and delicious for summer. As a result, winemakers have been producing more and more interesting types of rosé.
After I received Roberta’s suggestions, I realized that the mixed case of wine would be a fabulous gift for a weekend host (“so much better than a piece of china” said Roberta).
Be sure to sign up for the email NEWSLETTER of Morrell Wine; Roberta has free tastings all the time, usually from 3 to 6PM, and always featuring dynamic winemakers themselves.
