Summer means picnics, relaxing and enjoying good food and wine outdoors with friends and loved ones — safely, of course.

And because wine (or your favorite spirit) is the main event to Saturdays spent day-drinking, it’s important to choose the right ones to pair alongside your picnic fair. From baskets filled with rich and fatty foods to tart and fruity flavors, there’s an art to sipping on your favorite summer wine.
