Summertime Wines: Sangrias, Sparklings, and Sunshine.

All right, it's summertime (at least to this Oregon native it is). When I open my car door and could fire pottery in the heat blast I'm met with, I know we've arrived.

I suppose oppressive heat and blistering sunshine are not the ideal conditions for drinking a big, earthy, tannic red wine (for some). Maybe at the end of the night red wine is an option, but it's certainly not meant for poolside. Poolside needs a light, crisp, refreshing, and thirst quenching beverage.
