Cheers

During these days of Celebration, it’s important to have the right wine to make a toast, during a barbecue, pic nic, lunch in the garden or dinner at home, you must choose the right wine to pair every dish.

To start, for aperitif, you can prepare sparkling wine sangria.

Cheese and vegetables are perfect with a white wine, fresh and light as Vernaccia di San Gimignano.

During barbecue, you may prefer a strong red wine as Chianti Classico, and for dessert what about a meditation wine, to sip at the end of the meal.
