Top 5 Summer Red Wines
Discover the Best Summer Red Wines
"I only drink red", no problem!
There are plenty of red wine options for warmer weather, with of course Pinot Noir being an obvious choice, but certainly not the only contender. Other varieties with lower tannins and moderate alcohol such as Gamay, Tempranillo, Grenache and Merlot can work well. Often a lovely blend of lighter red grapes will hit the mark too, such as the Yangarra Noir or the Rosnay Beau Joli.
Make sure you give them a bit of a chill before serving if "room temperature" is above 25 deg.
