Red Wines for Summer

It might be hard to believe, but summer is almost here

If you’re looking for something as offbeat as Schiava but a bit richer with that same crunchy fruit profile, all in a decidedly darker vein, swap out Schiava’s strawberries for Blaufränkisch’s more peppery wild berry character. The two grapes aren’t really that similar except for their mountain terroir. You’ll find one (Schiava) living mostly south of the border in Italy, and the other primarily in Austria.

Another favorite with pork, this is a great wine when we start to dip into spicy sausages of both the pork and poultry persuasions.

Two to try:

Weninger Hochäcker Blaufränkisch $21

Paul Achs Blaufränkisch $20
