Rosé the day away with this pairing.
Nothing screams Summer quite like a chilled glass of rosé. This Pinot Noir rosé from Gran Moraine has quickly become one of my favorite summer wines and its cleansing acidity pairs nicely with succotash. Succotash is a summer corn dish that can be served as an easy side dish or main meal.

Wine: Gran Moraine Rosé
This dry rosé is bursting with aromas from pineapple to tangerine to cherry. On the palate is a combination of watermelon, grapefruit, and strawberry. Fruity, dry, and picnic-friendly.
Gran Moraine Wines are produced out of Yamhill Carlton AVA, which is located in northern Willamette Valley. This area mimics Mediterranean weather patterns and is a perfect setting for creating Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Succotash is a Native American dish that comes in many different variations. It typically consists of corn and shelled beans and is a great side or main dish for a summer picnic.
