One litre of perfect, chuggable white, crunchy Ontario rosé and fizzy red Piquette? Pass us the veggie tray, it's picnic time!

Azal, Arinto, Avesso & Friends, Bairrada, Portugal | Cracking open this lightly effervescent Vinho Verde-inspired white feels like the zest of life itself spritzing us in the face! Dirk Niepoort’s cooperative project Nat’Cool takes regional Portugese grapes and turns them into invigorating, chuggable wines that we ALWAYS want to drink. Whenever we get ‘em, they go fast and for good reason! With a sneaky extra glass at an unbeatable price, no wonder the Nat’Cool wines have quickly become fan favourites. Bottled with a touch of extra sugar to create a dry, refreshing spritz, expects some fizz on first pour, propping up aromatics of key lime, petrichor, green apple & rosemary-infused sparkling water with an herby, green finish. Perfect for a cheeky afternoon bev!

Gamay Noir, Cab Franc & Pinot Noir, Niagara, Ontario | If you’re the type to not wear a shirt under your overalls, here’s a dry, fleshy & perfectly fruited rosé for you! This deckside staple brings us back to our youth, when scented markers were all the rage – remember Scentsations? – and red smelled like strawberry pie! And just like a scented marker, you can practically smell this wine just by looking at it, all iridescent red fruit in a perfectly snappy ‘lil package that you’ll want to tote around to every BBQ you’re invited to. Juuust dark enough to qualify as a featherweight red, this crusher spends five months in tank and is bottled unfined and unfiltered. Fresh-forward with a touch of spritz and notes of sweet strawberry, pomegranate punch, wildberry tea, Swedish berries, a touch of florality and an earthy, slightly mineral finish. Perfect with pink pants & a hot summer breeze.

Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon & Zweigelt, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia | Sunday in August is one of our ultimate faves, a joyful project that paved the way for natural wine in BC. While their skin-contact Pinot Gris is forever *chef's kiss* we can't get enough of their Piquettes for a refreshing, tasty change. Piquettes are perfect for those moments when you’re sick of wine (it happens!) and need the grape-equivalent of a Coors Light to invigorate your spirits. Made from grape pomace (the used clumps of skins, seeds, stems & pulp) and a touch of organic northern BC honey to kickstart fermentation, this old-school approach to sparkling wine produces a featherweight wine with light fruit, lower ABV and tons of easy drinking freshness, perfect for splashing around a backyard kiddy pool OR a good ‘ole game of Mario Kart with your pals. Raspberry shrub, sour cherry, Italian plums, freshly cut grass, rose petals & cranberry cocktail without the cocktail. Drink me ASAP!
