We would like to preface this by saying we understand that you need more for a summer soiree than just wine—although we don’t want to believe it.
We love the summer in San Francisco, the morning fog, the afternoon sun—it’s the best of both worlds. There is also nothing better than a summer kickoff party to get the season started. Here are some of our essentials for the perfect laid back summer soiree.
Obvious choice. If there is one thing we love as much as wine, it’s cheese. The San Francisco/Bay Area has fantastic local cheese. One of our favorites is Cowgirl Creamery out of Point Reyes. And our favorite place to find it? The Ferry Building, AKA: Cheese heaven
There really doesn’t need to be an explanation. Raspberries are the perfect summer fruit (especially if they are grown in California). If you’re allergic, we’re sorry. The upside—watermelon!
3. Good Music
No judgment from us for what you classify as “good music”. Whatever makes you get down with your bad self is okay by us.
4. A sweater/blanket
Real talk. It’s San Francisco. It’s going to get cold.
And for the main attraction . . . wine! We don’t (always) like to toot our own horn—but our Free Reign white blend and Thrill rose are the perfect addition to any summer party—or fall, winter and spring for that matter. It’s made in San Francisco right in the heart of the Mission, and in our opinion, California wine is the best wine.
