The weather is heating up and the Shanghai spring has arrived, so it’s the perfect time for a spring picnic in one of the city’s many parks. Dust of your picnic basket and grab your blanket – spring has sprung!
If you’re wondering what bottles to take with you, fear not. We’ve put together a list of six wines that are perfect for a lazy, warm afternoon outdoors.
Hecht & Bannier
CÔTES DE PROVENCE ROSÉ
Ca’ di Alte
The Hecht & Bannier Côtes de Provence Rosé is quite simply spring in a bottle. Pop it open to enjoy a fresh and fruity flavor directly from the south of France. The higher altitude of this region allows the development of sugary, fruity notes that add something special to this bottle’s crisp flavor. It doesn’t get better than a beautiful pink Rosé against the backdrop of a beautiful sunny picnic.
Las Cepas Costalarbol
RED LUBERON CLASSIQUE
One of our 100% organic wines, the Costalarbol White Rioja from Spanish winery Las Cepas completely embodies the heritage and terroir of its legendary region. Made from indigenous Maturana grapes and aged in French oak barrels , every bottle is bursting with rich fruit flavor. Ideally enjoyed while laying on fresh grass in the spring sun.
Frank & Serafico
The L’Altro Chardonnay from Italian winery Pio Cesare is a deliciously light yet complex white wine with slight notes of vanilla and ripe fruit. It will pair perfectly with a light salad or white fish. A rich heritage is ingrained in each sip of the wine – it comes from an ancient, family-owned vineyard in Italy’s lush, northwestern Langhe region.
Meticulously produced in small batches, this red wine from Tuscany is sure to seriously elevate your picnic. The Frank & Serafico Montalzato features an intense bouquet of red cherries and vanilla that linger on the palate. It conjures the unique location of the vineyard in its taste, including the hot Tuscan days and cold nights that allow the grapes to develop uniquely delicate aromas. It’s a red that is plenty complex but not too heavy, and can complement a fresh salad on a sun kissed spring day.
Whether it’s a light rosé or a scrumptious red, all the wines above and more are available on the BottlesXO app now, to be delivered straight to you chilled and ready to drink! Click here to download it.
