Red Hot Summer Wines

While it’s easier to sip Red wine siblings, Rosé and White during the summer months, Red is not to be cast aside as it definitely has its place, be it with a grilled ribeye, on the beach in New England at sunset, at a summer barn fire in Virginia; the warmth of a Red hug is always amenable even in the summer. Below are our fab four red hot summer picks.
