Alto Adige for Summer - It's all about the "S's"

In the throes of summer, we change our daily living. Things aren’t so formal, as we relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of everyday life. This carries over into the type of wines we drink as well, as we generally dispense with the “serious” full-bodied whites and reds, and turn instead to lighter offerings that pair beautifully with the more delicate foods we enjoy during this time of the year. 573 more words
