Summer is still going strong and school is just around the corner! Ralph “My Wine Guy” set me up with a few vino picks for August…
Five different grapes come alive in the Esteio ($8), a spirited white that serenades your lips with flavors of peach, lemon and lime. Its slightly effervescent nature makes it a splendid choice to pour over crushed ice with freshly squeezed lime juice…try with sushi or this asparagus salad.

Plush is a smooth red blend that’s semi-dry and has a higher fruit concentration, but well worth it for just $10! The plum undertones make it a great companion for saucy burgers or BBQ. The Italian Gabbiano Moscato shows a sweeter side that’s also very refreshing. Keep all three in mind when browsing for bargains. And speaking of which…six or more bottles gets you an additional 10% off!
