June 2017


Summer is officially here! After enduring a rainy spring, it's finally time to get outside and enjoy everything Maine has to offer in the summertime. Between the nice weather, summer concerts, BBQs and beach days, there is no shortage of summer fun to be had.

The 4th of July is getting close. Let's hope for the great weather to continue so that everyone can get out grilling and enjoy the fireworks. Get together with family and friends and enjoy a cold, fresh Budweiser, "America's Beer."

Seasonal Wine Selections

As the temperatures rise, it's time for some refreshing white and rosé wines. We hope you will check out some of these wines that are perfect for the summer season.

Nortico Alvarinho
Nortico is light and delicate, lovely as "porch sipping wine" to drink on its own. Have it simply with corn bread and butter like country folks do in Portugal. Also a terrific seafood wine, particularly with salty, fattier dishes like fish tacos or broiled oysters. It's young and fresh with the characteristic bright acidity and aromas of peach and grapefruit.

Lincourt Chardonnay
An un-oaked gem from the Santa Rita Hills in Santa Barbara, this wine opens with fresh tangerine zest and citrus on the nose. Flavors of candied lemon and meringue are complemented by soft notes of flint and kumquat for a clean and refreshing finish. Pair this wine with yellowtail ceviche or as an aperitif.

Chateau Campuget Rosé
This wine is perfect for summertime meals around the pool, with fresh salads or ribs at a barbecue on the beach. Its bouquet is very aromatic, with scents of small red fruits such as raspberries or black currants. There is a perfect balance between acidity and mellowness. The finish is very long, leaving a delicate impression of fruitiness.

Whatever your adventure is this summer, we have a wine for every palate. For an extensive list of some of our best selections, be sure to check out our wine page.
