Time to enjoy Summer Wine!
Say that I enjoy wine is probably an understatement. I grew up with wine being served at meals. Children were even allowed to partake in smaller glasses of dinner wine during special occasions. In Woodinville Wa (where my grandparents lived) were two beautiful wineries. As a kid we would watch hot air balloons take off and land in the fields near the wineries. Later teenager the city started launching fireworks every 4th of July. Experiences like those created lasting memories that forever connected me to both wineries. As I grew older my appreciation for wine grew from something to enjoy during a meal, to connecting me with those and many other wonderful memories. During the summer months I really like to find some nice light and refreshing summer wine to go with all the memories made.Montes Cherb Rose Wine comes from the Colchagua Valley.
