Rioja Featured in Southern Living

LATEST NEWS | MAY 5, 2021

Southing Living Magazine writes up the following:

Summertime is perfect for backyard get-togethers, barbecues, and basking in the warm sun with a glass of wine in your hand. Not just any old wine will do, however. The best summer wines pair nicely with grilled food, fresh fruit or veggies, and are as refreshing as a gentle breeze on a hot day. To find out which wines are best for summer, we crisscrossed the South to talk to the experts: certified sommeliers who work in the South’s best restaurants, hotels, and wine shops. These professionals know wine, but perhaps more importantly, they know the food, culture, and weather of the South.

The Best Summer Wines for Sipping Outside, According to Southern Sommeliers

Bodegas Beronia Crianza
Kevin Smith, food and beverage manager at the historic Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club in St. Petersburg, Florida, is all about a certain red blend. “My favorite wine for summer is the red blend Bodegas Beronia Crianza from Rioja, Spain,” he recommends. “It is a velvety, full-bodied blend, though majority Tempranillo, and features mouthwatering wild berry flavors with hints of vanilla. It also has an ever-so-subtle smokey aroma that pairs well with summer barbecue favorites like hamburgers, mac and cheese, pulled pork and barbecue ribs.”
