Since a meal wouldn’t be complete without a range of wine colors, this collection includes a Sicilian sparkler from Riofavara, as well as—forgive the hyperbole—perhaps the only rosé you’ll need this summer: Fontsainte’s 2019 Gris de Gris, which is so perfect, I can’t recall what I like about other rosés. Further inspired by poolside lounges and beachy picnics, we’ve included bottles to conjure up the sea, like Punta Crena’s Matàossu from coastal Liguria, or the Bianco Gentile from Corsica’s Antoine-Marie Arena, which rightfully tastes like sunshine tempered by a salty breeze.

Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
