Beat The Heat With White Wine:

Have you noticed that this summer has been hotter than normal? Then sit back and let me help you cool off.White Wine

The Cure For The Summer Blues:

This summer has been a hot one, but that is no reason for you stay cooped up in the house. Everybody has a favorite activity that they love to do. Perhaps you like go boating, or pitch a tent in the woods. Whatever it is that you like to do. don’t let the heat of summer stop you.

Go to the local liquor store and grab a bottle or two of your favorite white wine. Find a comfortable place to park your but, and pour a glass of chilled white wine for yourself and a friend. Just picture it, the two of you sitting on the deck of a boat, or stretched out in a lounge chair somewhere in the woods. You do not even have to leave the house. You can sit in the back yard and enjoy some nice chilled white wine. I know that this weekend I will be enjoying some with the wife in our back yard.

No Place To Go:

Listen, I get it, I really do. This year has been a tough one, with the pandemic. Some places are still restricted, we are not able to travel. But that is just fine, you do not need to go far. You can have a stay cation. I know it is not what any of us wanted for the summer, trust me I had plans of going out of state with the wife for our anniversary in September. Now, our plans have changed. We will be staying somewhere in our home state.

The wife and myself have been looking in the lake George region. We went there a few years back, when we renewed our vows for our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. It was a little place called The Blue Lagoon. Although it is not a resort, just a hotel on the lake. We still were able to sit in some Adirondack chairs and share some wine, while we watched the sun set.Lake Sunset I think this year we are going to stay at an all-inclusive resort on the lake. It all depends on if they offer dinning service at the time we want to go. So, we will see. Wish us luck,won’t you?

Keep The Wine Chilled:

Now, if you want to beat the heat with white wine, you need keep it chilled. Drinking warm wine is not going to help you cool off. How do I keep it cold you ask, if you are staying home keep it in the refrigerator. It only takes one of you to walk back inside for refills.

The other way to keep the wine chilled is to keep it in a bucket of ice. Personally this is my favorite way of doing it. Not only do I not have to get up, and go inside for another glass, but, it looks more romantic. Can you picture it, a bottle of wine nestled down in a bucket filled with ice cubes? That is the stuff that movies are made of. I know now I sound like a sap. I am after all a hopeless romantic. If you ask my wife this, she would more than likely laugh and say not my husband. However, I can be a die hard romantic when I have the urge to be so.

Which Wine To Choose:

This can be a tricky situation. Depending on who you talk to. It seems like everyone is an expert on wine these days. My solution to this problem is simple. Try several kinds, then stick with the one you like the best. I am tired of listening to so called experts. No matter what, it all comes down to taste. What you like, not what someone else likes.

I am not saying,don’t’t listen to other people, by all means talk to your friends. See what they like for white wines, and give it a try. If you happen to like it, great. If you do not like it, give another one a try. Keep tasting different white wines until you find one that you enjoy drinking. In today’s market there are so many brands, as well as flavors to try. You could be testing a different white wine every night of the week.

This is what the summer is for, hanging out with friends, kicking back and drinking some ice-cold wine. White wine is made for the summer months. Red wines are more for the colder months if you ask me. So, stop hiding in the house, sitting in front of the air conditioning. Get up, go out, and share some chilled white wine with your friends or family. I know for a fact that they will pay you back ten-fold. You know that Christmas is not far off, if you treat your friends well now. They will treat you well at the holidays. Perhaps they could be showing up on your doorstep with a bottle of something to warm you up, on those cold winter nights. Like a bottle of a nice brandy, but that’s for another story, another time.

Keep Some On Hand:

Since it is summer, we know that eventually someone is going to show up on our doorsteps. It is a good practice to keep some white wine in the ice box. We do not want to disappoint our friends or family, do we? Due to the pandemic this year most of the local bars and restaurants, are still closed. Or are operating at half capacity, but does not mean that we can not get together. I served this great nation of ours, so I will be dammed if they tell me I can not have friend or family over to my own home. I will invite someone who I do not know to have a drink with me. That is just who I am, a giver.

I would like to thank you for stopping by today, I hope that I was able to help you in some way today. Let me know how you make out with your search for a way to, beat the heat with white wine. What wine did you choose? Maybe I would like that one. How did your friends like the wine you chose?

Remember to drink responsibly, and never drink and drive. Love John D.

  1. I really love a chilled carafe of white wine on a hot day.  I enjoy wine in the back yard.  I enjoyed a good amount of wine in Italy.  In Italy I mostly drank half-bottles called ‘piccolo’ which are nice for a hot day.  Not too much; not too little.  I made it to Santa Margherita, Italy in my travels.  Yes, I ordered a bottle of Pinot Grigio. I requested the waiter steam the label off the bottle so I might keep it as a trinket and also compare it to a label in the states.  The labels are the same and the white wine was delightful. Cheers!

    1. Some day I hope to travel to Italy with my wife. I  had the opportunity to travel the orient, as well as Australia and Hawaii,  while I was in the United States navy. Thank you for the review. Sincerely: John D.

  2. Hello there! this is an amazing review you have got here. I am sure this quality information in this post will be beneficial to anyone who come across it. I always prefer my wine it in a bucket of ice especially when chilling under the canopy in my compound. For me, that’s the best way of “beating the heat”.

    1. I am very happy that you like the article. The fact that I touched on a point that 5ou already do, make me feel like I have done a good job. Thank you.

  3. Thank you so much for this excellent article, John! As someone who enjoys the occasional glass of white wine, you have done an excellent job of explaining the benefits of white wine. I began drinking white wine for the taste of it, but I’ve also discovered that white wine can help to prevent heart disease. Heart disease, COPD, and heart attacks run in my family-if a cup of white wine (along with eating well, exercising, and not adopting unhealthy lifestyle habits, of course) can help improve one’s heart health, I consider that to be a win. Great read! God bless you!

    1. Thanks a bunch, but if you are looking for health benefits, red wine is a better choice. Wite wine has more carbs than red. Perhaps you should read the article I wrote about red wine.

  4. Hi John,
