Nothing is better than a chilled glass of white wine in the summer. An ideal summer dinner for me is a light salad (an awesome Greek salad with extra olives is pictured below), some crusty bread and a glass of crisp white wine that’s refreshing and fruity (I can’t do an oaky white–I’m all about the acidity).
Enter Rueda Verdejo: it’s the top selling white wine from Spain and if you like a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, you’ll love a Verdejo white wine! I am by no means a sommelier but I love trying new wines from different regions and it’s safe to say that a Verdejo white from Rueda is now in my rotation because it’s easy to drink (oops) and so very refreshing on a hot summer evening; I enjoyed it on my mom’s patio with my family over the holiday. And the best part? Most bottles are under $20. Next time you’re picking up a bottle of wine for your favorite BYOB spot (with a patio, of course) or headed to your friend’s summer BBQ, be sure to look for the Rueda logo–you won’t be disappointed and your guests will love it, too!
