Fresh Fruit And Wine Pairings For Summer
Chilled wine and frozen fruit epitomize summer, so we thought, why not put the two together? We've teamed up with Club W, a wine subscription that makes finding your new favorite vintage a breeze, to give you the ultimate guide to wine and fruit pairings. We're here to help you look like a sommelier at your next summer gathering.
Before we jump to the pairings, here's a little host-with-the-most tip—create your very own fruit ice cubes and serve them as a delicious side or use them as a garnish.
