Hijo de Rubentis * Sparkling Rose * 2016

Finally, a patio night for me!! The past two weeks have been rather hectic. Family visits, taxi duty for the kids, the never ending yard work (well the hubs does that, I mostly “oversee” the process)… After a busy day, I grabbed my bottle of the Hijo de Rubentis sparkling rose, reheated some jambalaya, made a salad and headed to the tranquility of my magical back patio. I had been hoarding this wonderful bottle of Spanish sparkling rose for a while now and it was the perfect night.

Best thing about this wine: it’s a fun and interesting sparkling rose wine that is a must try for the summer

Optima * Rose * 2016

Life. It gets so busy and time flies by without giving it another thought. I swear last week I was buying winter coats and this week it was already time for a bit of spring cleaning. I could lie and say that meant sprucing up the house for spring, but it really means that I was putting my reds in the cool basement storage area and filling up my wine fridge with my whites and rose. I couldn’t resist breaking open the Optima Rose. The cleaning could wait.

The best thing about this wine:  fresh, crisp and the brilliant color will steal you away.
Available at: The Winery Omaha
By the bottle: $29
Pairs well with spicy foods, and sunny patios
