At Parker Payless We look forward to summer because it means firing up the grill and popping
corks with Our favorite “chillin and grillin” wines. Nothing beats hanging out with family and friends
over a long meal under the Colorado sky. Here are My picks below made for a perfect summer
evening meal.

2016 La Cappuccina Soave Italy
Soave is always one of My go to wines. Aromas of meyer lemon, orange zest and melon on the
nose with a bright juicy mouthfeel make for a very versatile wine. You could pair this with grilled
shrimp and vegetables with lemon zest and white pepper. Best buy $9.99

2017 La Provencal Cotes de Provence France
Le Provencal Rose has been produced for almost ninety years. The bouquet is inviting with
strawberries, melon and red currant. At once delicate and also flavorful, this wine is perfect for
grilled trout served over a salad of baby lettuces and lightly dressed with citrus vinaigrette.
Only $13.99

2015 Ecker Eckhoff Zweigelt Austria
Don’t be intimidated by the exotic sounding Zweigelt grape, as it produces delicious wine!
Bright juicy cherry dominates the bouquet followed by spice and a touch of fennel. The mouthfeel
is fresh and elegant. Best served slighty chilled with grilled sausage served on a bun and dressed
with a fancy mustard to kick it up a notch. On sale $12.99

2016 Domaine Roman Pinot Noir Pays D’OC France
Classic aromas of cherry, currant, and raspberries burst out of the glass. The mouthfeel is delicious
with the fruit flavor wrapped around a silky long finish. Perfect with grilled and sliced portobello
mushrooms served over a parmesan flecked penne pasta. On Sale $12.99

2016 Terra d’Oro Barbera Amador County California
The team at Terra d’Oro has really knocked it out of the park this year! Barbera is indigenous to
the Piemonte region of Italy and in California it found a perfect climate in the rolling hills of Amador
County. The American take on this varietal leans to the darker fruit spectrum with dark spicy cherry,
blackberry and blueberry. The mouthfeel is vibrant with the zesty fruit persisting through the bright
acidity on the long finish. Serve this with Italian style burgers dressed with garlic mayo, lettuce, basil,
red onion and tomato. On sale $11.99

Here is to a great summer!
