We love summer!

The warm(er) weather, long days and summertime cuisine are calling our name. Add a perfectly paired glass of wine into the mix and we might have just found heaven on earth.

Sandy Hanshaw, fellow local business owner and wine pairing extraordinaire, offered her expertise to create a “Guide to Summer Wines.” Sandy’s restaurant, The Wine Pub, brings neighbors and friends together in Point Loma for an extraordinary selection of handpicked wine, craft beer and gourmet food. Sandy helped us pair some of her favorite wines with classic summer dishes you can find at any Barons Market.

For soft cheeses, pair with sparkling wines and a dry rosé. The French Rosé The Wine Pub is pouring right now is delicious with crisp notes of green apple and pear.
For fruit salad, go with a complementary fruit wine. Try a white blend or light Pinot Noir. I particularly enjoy a white blend from Paso Robles that is a delicious compliment to many dishes.
For spring salads, always pair with Sauvignon Blanc. You can choose a domestic one or go New World with one from New Zealand.
For warm days, choose from any of the wines mentioned above and you won’t be disappointed. My personal favorite at The Wine Pub is our Belle Cassel Prosecco. I just love enjoying a glass of bubbles on a warm San Diego day.
