Summer is the season of entertaining. The perfect time to slow down and unwind with friends over hearty meals and great wine. If you’re playing host, planning an entire menu and more importantly — the wine pairings — can be quite an arduous task to take on solo, so we’ve taken the liberty to list a few great bottles of wine.
Whether you’ve got in-laws to impress or if you’re looking for the perfect accompaniment to a lazy Saturday afternoon by the pool, there’s definitely a bottle of wine for every occasion. We’re giving you more reasons to drink this August with the Amazing Wine Sale, so you’ll be able to pick a vino (or two) that won’t break the bank.
‘Where to catch the deals?’ you ask? Your nearest trip to BJ Liquor Shop, Aung Pyae Sone Liquor Shop, Wine Link and more liquor stores around town.
The one that brings people together
Beringer Founders’ Estate Merlot is the ultimate wine of choice when planning a casual get-together. Assembling a delectable cheese board to accompany this bottle of wine with history from California’s oldest winery would be a natural choice. Beringer’s Merlot embodies everything people around the world love about Napa Valley wines, and it’ll also pair perfectly with the thoughtful conversations you’ll have with your friends as you take down a bottle (or a few) together.

The one that you should bring to the dinner party
At your next dinner party, stand out as the best guest when you pick up a bottle of Penfolds Koonunga Hills Shiraz Cabernet. Recently named the ‘World’s Most Admired Wine Brand 2019’ by Drinks International, Penfolds has earned its place amongst even the most discerning of wine enthusiasts.
Showing up with a bottle of Penfolds — whether it’s a special edition release or a classic — speaks to your friend or loved one that you cared enough to bring something special. You can almost be sure that you’ve secured an invite to the next feast.

The one that should be part of your kitchen arsenal
There’s a reason this wine has been served at the White House for its state dinners. A Beaulieu Vineyards California Cabernet Sauvignon makes for a classy and sophisticated sip — and it’s great used in cooking too! Enriched by hints of violet and mocha, this wine has a medium body and dark fruit flavor — typical of a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
This fruit-forward Cab is best enjoyed with strong flavors like an aged cheese or with a gamey meat dish. Expect a poignant black cherry and plum flavor on the nose, and pats on the back when you use it in a rich beef stew.
