My pick for summer? It’s almost too easy! Claiborne & Churchill’s Gewürztraminer is the perfect wine for a warm night with friends and family. Claiborne & Churchill, an Edna Valley winery, have been making this wine for years. The nose on it alone will make you want more. My parents passed down their love for this wine to me and I’ll pass it on you now.

I picked up a bottle at my favorite wine shop in San Luis Obispo, the Monterey Street Wine Company. My family hosted our end-of-the-season bocce ball party last night (it’s true, I play in a local bocce ball league) and I figured it was the perfect opportunity to spread some Gewürz love. And wouldn’t you know everyone absolutely loved it? I had a secret grin all night knowing my addition had been a huge success.

As it was a bocce party, it wouldn’t be complete without at least six more bottles open! Here are some of my favorites from last night…
