August in Missouri can be downright sweltering. A chilled glass of Missouri wine is just the ticket for a refreshing break from the heat. One of the easiest and quickest ways to chill your wine without watering it down is to use frozen fruit as “ice cubes”. They keep your wine cool as you sip, don’t dilute the flavor, and when you’re finished with your wine, you have a delicious snack waiting for you.
Beat the heat of August with these frozen fruit and Missouri wine pairings:
- Pineapple + Vignoles (*August is Vignoles Month!*)
- Melon + Vidal Blanc
- Strawberries + Catawba
- Peaches + Chardonel
- Mango + Traminette
- Blueberries + Seyval Blanc
- Grapes + Concord
- Blackberries + Sparkling Wine
- Raspberries + Dry Rosé
You don’t have to color inside the lines on these pairings. Mix and match to find your favorites. Savor summer with a glass of perfectly chilled Missouri wine paired with delicious frozen fruit!
