Peak season: It’s show time for veggie gardens and grapevines. Mother Nature, bring it on! Garden tomatoes are bursting with flavor. Sweet peppers are actually sweet. And for California’s winegrapes, the finish line is in sight. Celebrate summer’s bounty and release your inner Matisse with an artful platter of crisp vegetables and two luscious dips.
Every drop counts: Nothing is more precious to a California winegrower than water. In most grapegrowing regions of the state, it’s a commodity that is dispensed to grapevines drop by drop not only to conserve water, but to enhance wine quality. New technologies have done a lot to help growers know exactly when and where to water for best results.
Which wine? Rosé to the rescue. It’s refreshing, zesty, and pretty to boot—everything you want in a summer beverage for your colorful veggie composition. Chill a bottle quickly in a bucket of ice water, a faster method than the fridge.
