Wines (+ Accessories!) for Spring & Summer
It’s a smile, it’s a kiss, it’s a glass of wine… it’s (ALMOST) summertime. And nothing says *summer* like crisp, chilled white wines and rosés perfect for sipping poolside or on the patio.
In honor of sunny days and alfresco sipping ahead, we’ve compiled our list of favorite products to take wines on-the-go; our must-have list for toting wines to the beach, picnics in the park, or over to a friend’s pool.
- The Essentials: GoVino Glasses come in a variety of shapes and sizes for sparkling wine, whites, red wines and more. The flexible, shatterproof, BPA-free wine glasses are a must-have all year round, but especially for outdoor sipping in these warmer months.
- Feelin’ Fancy? We’ll never say no to a Corkcicle Stemless cup. Stainless steel and insulated, these keep your chilled glass of wine cool for hours— looking great along the way with gorgeous designs. (Pro tip: the Corkcicle Classic Stemless in Rose Quartz is the perfect match for the Olema Provence Rosé).
- For the Mountaineers: A Yeti Rambler with Yeti’s signature lid is made for what we’ve coined a “wine hike,” AKA a leisurely walk without *too* much elevation gain but beautiful views along the way— an ideal outdoor activity for sipping a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or sparkling wine.
- For the Beach Party or Family Picnic: fill up the Corkcicle Bucket Cooler Bag with 3-4 bottles of wine, add cold packs or ice, and be on your merry way. We’re particular fans of the backpack straps that make carrying the cooler bag as ergonomic as a twist-off wine enclosure (we’re looking at you, Olema Sauv Blanc).
- For the Whole Package – a foldable wine picnic table with space for a bottle and four wine glasses solves the problem of where to set your wine + cheese board… though if you choose to wedge your bottle and wine glass in the sand at the beach along with your toes, there’s no judgment here.
- Set the Stage: A few of our favorite picnic blankets include this Oniva blanket tote, LL Bean’s Sunbuster, or Pendleton’s Roll-Up Blanket. They’ll provide the perfect layer of comfort atop the grass at the park or sand at the shore.
Don’t forget the wine! We’ve put together an Olema Wines of Summer Six-Pack with our favorite spring and summer wines, INCLUDING ice packs and 2-Day Shipping to avoid the stress of warm-weather shipping.olema wine, unconventional pairings.
