The weather’s getting warmer, the drinks are getting colder, and summer’s getting closer—can I get an amen?
Whether you’re drinking in, on, or near the water, I think we can all agree that nothing beats a good summertime buzz. At the risk of sounding like an alcoholic, day drinking in the toasty sunshine is one of my most favorite things to do. A bikini and good book, a chilled, crisp glass of wine, a palm full of tanning lotion, a light breeze, and some refreshing water to dip into as needed—that’s my idea of paradise.
This summer I’m sitting poolside with B Side. B Side wines are crafted right here in sunny California (obviously), along the North Coast. Their range includes a Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon. B Side’s reds are fantastic once the sun goes down, but for warm summer afternoons by the pool, a chilled glass of white (or rosé) wine is my jam. B Side Chardonnay is equal parts silky and refreshing, and I’m all in.
So, join me in a toast to summer with your favorite wine(s).
Cheers to palm trees, an ocean breeze, and salty hair. Cheers to your favorite bikini that makes you feel like a supermodel (rock it, who cares what anyone else thinks). Cheers to tan-lines, sun hats, and sunglasses so big that you don’t need makeup. Cheers to laughing so hard with your friends that your cheeks hurt. Cheers to melted ice cream cones. Cheers to longer days and sunsets at 8pm. Cheers to walking barefoot at a family BBQ. Cheers to Maui Babe and aloe Vera (because you’ll likely need it). Cheers to a long shower and a good nap after a day in the sun. Cheers to every graduate, everywhere. Cheers to summer love (or flings). Cheers to road trips and staycations. Cheers to seasonal fruits and fresh vegetables. Cheers to live country music. Cheers to summer. And of course, cheers to B Side Wines.
