The next time you gather around with friends this summer, reminisce about days gone by over a shared bottle of wine. Each wine captures a moment of time with hints of sunshine, the terroir of the land, and the people that came together to harvest and produce the vintage. There’s a wine that complements every moment of the summer day, from dawn to dusk.

As the coolness of the night leads to fire light, a Beaujolais is a light red wine perfect with vegetables or seafood. Grown in France, dream of walking through the streets on Bastille Day with French baguette in hand.
