Tomorrow is National Wine Day!! Otherwise known as the best day of the year, when nobody needs to feel guilty about ordering that extra glass (or more).
Whether you’re opting for a fun and fruity Rosé or sultry Cabernet Sauvignon, Llano Estacado offers something for every palate. Llano Estacado Winery is now the largest, best-selling winery in all of Texas. Llano is licensed to ship to more than 20 different states and is available online or at nationwide retailers.
Some of the most popular wines include a Sauvignon Blanc – a dry white wine displaying aromas of passion fruit, guava and lemon peel. It’s a great wine to pair with meals like herb rubbed grilled chicken, seafood and salads. Llano’s Pinot Grigio is a fragrant wine with hints of melon, lime and ripe apple. It’s perfect by the pool or at your next gathering.
But, my favorite of the bunch, Llano’s Signature Rosé is a must-have this summer! This wine is grown in the high elevation, sandy sites of their best vineyards – it’s both fruity and aromatic, and food friendly. I’ve put together the perfect summer picnic salad to compliment Llano’s Rosé wine that’s ideal for any warm Texas day.
