Summer is just around the corner, and with the warmer weather come pool parties, barbecues, and plenty of downtime just spent soaking up the sun — and perhaps a drink or two. In the latest edition of’s Quarterly Wine Newsletter, released today, you’ll find the perfect beer, wine and spirits to make your summertime celebrations a success.

While wine has been known to keep many a body warm during the winter, we’ve chosen to focus on lighter varietals that will help you cool down when the temperature’s up. On’s Top 10 Summer Wines and Top 10 Rosés lists, the emphasis is placed upon refreshing flavors ranging from dry and tart to tropical and fruity. And if you’re going to be grilling, you’ll want to check out our’s Top 10 Barbecue Wines for great libations to sip on with steak, ribs and grilled veggies.

Of course, a glass of wine isn’t the only way to beat the heat, and our newsletter doesn’t discriminate when it comes to great drinks. From fine spirits to premium beers to the perfect margarita, we’ve done our best to please every palate — and every size pocketbook.

What’s more, when you feel like getting out of the house, we’ve also got wine events, winemaker dinners and spirit tastings to broaden your horizons. Like a warm summer evening, good wine is meant to be savored in the company of close friends and family. So we say, “Drink up!”
