You might not realize it, but wine pairs with a lot of things in Cambodia. Watching the sunset on the riverside, chilling on the picture-perfect beaches of Koh Rong, or simply enjoying a glass at home while you unwine-d. So, for all Phnom Penh dwellers out there, here’s why it’s wine-o-clock all August long.

Bring your friends together with a gift of great wine
Nothing beats a nice bottle of wine with close friends overlooking Phnom Penh’s salmon-colored cityscape. Bring a couple of bottles (or more), point that fan directly at you, and clink glasses on the rooftop. For a crowd-pleasing gift, choose a wine that embodies bold and complex notes like Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet. The ambiance and conversation will complement the rich dark berry taste. Good thing the Amazing August Wine Sale makes those rooftop nights last longer.

Start your evening with a glass of wine before heading out on the town
Before you head out to Bassac Lane to meet your crew at The Library, break the ice at home with Beaulieu Vineyard California Merlot, a fruit-forward red with dark berries and smoky oak on the nose. This quality merlot from one of the oldest historical vineyards in Napa Valley makes for sophisticated, but easy drinking — the perfect way to start a night out in Phnom Penh.

Make it romantic with a bottle of Bordeaux on Tonle Bati
Remember that sunset we mentioned earlier? Well, it’s even more beautiful over Tonle Bati, a lake 30km south of Phnom Penh. It’s a favorite sunset spot for locals and those escaping from the city. Bring a picnic and be sure to pack a bottle of Maison de Grand Esprit L’être Magique Bordeaux. Nothing says romance like French wine, right? This Bordeaux is modest with a silky mouth-feel and approachable — much like how you want to seem to your date!
