Old World Wines Love a New World Party

Summer is NOT Over!
Even in Minnesota, we have a few weeks of good weather left. It’s not too late to enjoy the patio with friends. While you might think Old World wines are serious and not the place for a casual get together, you’d be wrong. Old World wines love a party.

Old World wines at a casual summer party

These Old World wines love a party!

 

Saber that Crémant de Loire
One guaranteed way to kick-start a party is to open a bottle of sparkling wine, even better when someone is willing to try their hand with the saber!

Every one of the wines here deserves a place at a gathering. They are all fun and appeal to a wide variety of tastes. No old-world funk (I love it, but it’s not for everyone), easy tannins, and tastes for all palates. (click on any photo for slide show, escape to return)

We enjoyed these wines over dinner with a multi-generational gathering of friends, and everyone was happy with the offerings.

Dry and sweet, sparkling, still, red and white; something for every taste.

Dinner included pasta, grilled chicken, salad and corn. Whether you preferred white or red, there was a wine to pair with your dinner.

Disclosure: The wines were provided as samples for evaluation. All opinions expressed are mine. Thanks to Mionetto USA for these fun and affordable summer wines!
