Essential Long Weekend Sippers


Labour Day is the last long weekend of the summer. To celebrate all your moments and end the sunny season on a grape note, here are some refreshing sippers that are perfect for hosting a family barbecue or a dinner party for close friends.  

Cru Select New Zealand Style Sauvignon Blanc, a renowned New Zealand wine, is deliciously crisp with intense flavours of grapefruit peel, freshly cut grass, and light oak on the finish. Enjoy a glass alongside fresh seafood, like oysters and scallops, or soft goat cheese.  

For dry and light-bodied, there’s En Primeur Italy Pinot Grigio! It opens with notes of citrus, floral, and pear. There are hints of green apple on the finish and the palate is elevated by a harmony of fruit and crisp acidity. Pair it with grilled fish, such as halibut, crab salad, or buttery garlic shrimp. 

Made in the style of one of Germany’s most renowned whites, this Cru International German Gewürztraminer Style is wonderfully balanced and crisp with bold tropical fruits on the palate. Tastes great with Vietnamese-style shrimp or Thai red curry chicken.  

Keep the essence of summer alive as you transition into the fall season. Craft the perfect white wine this month to pair with your lighter meals and special occasions – we can help!
