Wine choices for balmy outdoor evenings

Planning a celebratory get together? Milestone birthday, anniversary or Thanksgiving? With the help of Treasury Wine Estates we’ve pulled together nine wines which work well for outdoor parties and gatherings at home. So now the humidity is dropping (yes, it really is), how about turning off the air-conditioning and heading outside? And to make it even easier, we’ve included some food suggestions too.

A soothing little sparkling to get the party rolling 

Sparkling:

Beringer Sparkling White Zinfandel

Tasting notes: Floral with citrus fruit aromas with strawberry, brown spice and citrus flavours.

Food: Enjoy with sweet or spicy barbecued foods, or chicken wings with Thai sweet chilli sauce.

Yellowglen Yellow
