Wines for sunny days

Sun's out, no time for cynical, snarky stuff. Go forth and enjoy. Enjoy the Banfi Rosa Regale at Cascadia, a sweet, fragrant sparkler (Brachetto grapes) that makes a great accompaniment to summer desserts. Go forth and buy as much of the Arroyo Joven as your cellar can handle; a yummy Spanish red (Tinta del Pais grapes) that's only $7 a bottle, half-off, at Seattle Wine Outlet.

And while you're at it, check out Lisa Pettit's playful new labels for Vin du Lac over on Lake Chelan. You won't have any trouble spotting these on the shelf, and you don't have to worry that the neighbors will think you're some sort of wine snob when you bring a couple of bottles to the picnic. Kudos, kudos!

Ronald, I just found the blog and am enjoying reading through your posts.

I'm a big fan of Vin du Lac and totally approve of their new labels. It works in a French twist on summer in Lake Chelan kind of way.
