Summer’s heat calls for lighter fare and garden fresh ingredients.  I have spent many a summer evening making these lamb burgers topped with Feta or my fresh coleslaw for friends and family, without wasting too much time prepping, cooking and heating up the kitchen.  A great take on watermelon starts the party off with an Italian twist.  The name of the game is creating dishes that allow you to spend more time mingling with friends and family.

Suggested Wines:


As vivacious as Doris Day, these wines may be sparkling, white or rosé, but are always on the lighter and brighter end of the spectrum and never feature oaky flavors. These tangy wines of refreshment make ideal aperitifs and are remarkably versatile food partners.

As sensuous as Eartha Kitt, these mid-weight reds are ripe enough to offer plump fruit flavor but not heavy or tannic. The category includes most Merlots and our softer red blends, but also the ripest California Pinot Noirs and the lightest Cabernet Sauvignons. These crowd-pleasing reds are thoroughly modern – low in both acidity and tannin.
