There’s much ado about barbecue this time of year. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the hype—there’s something festive about enjoying a sizzling plate in the warm evening air. These days my fridge is bursting with weekly CSA box bounty, and I love the simplicity of cooking an entire meal on the grill: just a little seasoning and a few minutes over the flame, tada! My partner would gladly eat grilled steak and zucchini for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if he could, but I have to admit, I’m getting a little burnt out. Lately I’ve been craving crisp dishes to refresh and reinvigorate my palate. Accordingly, I now find myself reaching for lithe rosés (instead of my go-to chilled reds) to pair with an array of char-less bites: mixed green salads loaded with nourishing toppings, shrimp or red snapper ceviche over salty chips, creamy avocado and cucumber gazpacho… Here’s a simple recipe so pretty it’s worthy of a Bon Appétit cover: juicy watermelon salad tossed with thinly sliced radishes, snap peas, fresh mint, crumbled feta, and a zesty vinaigrette. Pair it with a glass of Marquiliani’s ethereal vin gris and the effortless dish will suddenly feel très gourmand. Our 2020 rosés have finally begun to arrive on our shores. These ultra-fresh and inviting new arrivals are the perfect match for lighter, warm-weather fare. Giacometti’s pomegranate-tinged rosé will dance a jig alongside raw fish. Tavel with green olive tapenade on garlicky toast is a must-try. For hearty salads, Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup’s rosé is so versatile at table, it’ll complement just about anything you throw at it: caesar, orzo, wedge, niçoise… heck, even potato! With wholesome ingredients and bright, flavorful wines, it’s hard to go wrong.
