Picnic Wines

When I think of Picnic time it makes me think of fresh air, sunshine, summer, romance and getting together with friends.

Who doesn’t like a picnic? Picnic season is here, so pack up your picnic basket your checkered table cloth your french baguette, some delicious cheese and don’t forget the wine glasses, that’s very important. After all, whats a picnic without wine.

When I’m choosing a wine for a picnic I like to stay with lighter style wines that are not too expensive. Check these wines out from our wine department here at Nino’s.

Hopler Gruner Veltliner 2015- Austria

Try this crisp dry white, Gruner Veltliner from Austria. Bursting with flavors of apricot, lime and peach.


Gerard Bertrand Cote Des Roses Rose 2016- France

Rose’s are hot and this Rose from the Languedoc Region of France is very popular. Full of fresh summer fruits, cassis and redcurrant ending on the palate with slight sweetness.

Just Peachy Bubbly- France

Fresh sparkling and Just Peachy, and only 75 calories per glass. Try it with fresh brie on crackers.

Kentia Albarino 2015- Spain

A fresh and fruity white wine with lemon, peach and lime zest on the palate.

Copa Di Vino

The Copa Di Vino wines are perfect for picnics or boating and are bottled right in the glass and ready to drink and come in a variety of grape selections.

Happy picnicking,
