This summer, we’re saying au revoir to reds, and what’s up to the crisp, the acidic, and the gold. Whether you’re sunbathing by the pool, kicking back by the campfire, or just trying to beat the heat, our eight favorite lighter wines have you covered. From a classic and comforting chardonnay to a refreshing millennial pink French rosé is sure to make a splash at any summer occasion.
If you’re looking for more zest in your life, a bottle of Pinot Grigio can provide that. We included a classic Pinot Grigio in the La Pluma collection because we’re all about light and easy here, which is exactly what this grape from Italy is. It has that dry sense of humor that seems so effortless with a punchy acidity to keep you on your toes, all while offering notes of lemon, limes, green apples, and honeysuckle. Long story short; when it’s been a heavy day and your soul is seeking light things only, you’ll be happy to have this bottle on hand.
A little sweet. A little tart. A little salty? You truly get it all with this white Italian wine. If you're into that biting acidity, Verdicchio will probably be high on your list of most-loved wines from our Andiamo collection. Citrus fruits like mandarin, lemon, and grapefruit are at the forefront, but what really sets this Italian wine apart is its distinct notes of almond. While our Verdicchio can start out tasting a bit tart, the more you sip, the smoother it becomes. In fact, we suggest approaching it as an aperitif (Italian for an alcoholic drink sipped before a meal to stimulate the appetite) to experience its full effect.
You probably know that the Tour de France is held on Ventoux Mountain in France, but did you know that the same area is known for its high-altitude rosé? This is the kind of quintessential French rosé that you don’t need to spin your wheels over—it’s simply delicious, crisp, and perfect for warm weather. Despite its delicate, pale pink color, each sip is lush with flavor, from tropical passionfruit and zesty citrus to refreshing melon. This has the potential to be your new summer go-to, so we’d suggest stocking up.
We knew the only red in the La Pluma collection had to be exceptionally good and exceptionally light. That’s why including a Grenache was a no-brainer. If smooth, fruit-forward, light-bodied reds appeal to your tastebuds, this could be your new favorite. The grape itself is tricky; depending on the climate of where its grown, Grenache wines could be light, dense, or somewhere in the middle. La Pluma’s version has all the airiness and flavor notes we wanted in our Grenache, which is how we know you’ll love it. Get the most of this red by pairing it with roasted meats, spice-heavy vegetables, and Mexican-inspired dishes with lots of cumin.
We couldn't not have a weird white in the mix, right?! The Vermentino grape is native along the coast of Italy on the island of Sardinia (yeah, like the fish). Because of its origin, this grape offers a salty, crisp flavor that's incredibly easy to drink and enjoy. We say it's "weird" only because it's not widely known by name, but chances are you've probably had it before if you've ever ordered white wine in an Italian restaurant. If you love peaches and lemons and get a kick out of anything that reminds you of the sea, our Vermentino is the perfect Italian white to experience on a sunny day outside.

Purchased for our daughter - she has had a few of the bottles and enjoyed each one so far!
She said she has not had a bad one yet!
Loved doing this - it was such a great way to try a lot of great wines and did it with friends, which was great. I gave it to two friends as a gift and we did several wine tastings together. I will definitely try another flight.
This was a great pack, I’m glad I gave it a try. I’m not big into super sweet wines, so they weren’t all a home run for me, but I enjoyed most and glad to have tried them all.
The vermentino was my favorite!!
I am the only wine drinker in my house and these bottles are the perfect size for one. Great quality!
I bought this set of wine for my auntie’s promoted celebration gift. She loves all of them and she told me good size for two of them. I’m happy to chose this.
I loved this selection of summer sips, crisp, fragrant and tasty.
I think my favorite is the Andiamo Verdicchio with the LA Puma Sauvignon Blanc coming in a close second
The 101. The Hollywood sign. The sheer volume of kale smoothies. California is known for a lot of things, but perhaps its most popular product is its wine. Our California Wine Mixer tasting flight has all the greats and then some; Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay are the celebrities you’ll recognize right away, but you might spot some surprises in this flight, too. That’s California for you—you never know what you’ll get!
Picture this: a day trip to Italian vineyards, sampling all the finest wine followed by the same in the French countryside. Sounds like a dream, right? If an international flight isn’t on the horizon for you, this flight of Italian and French wines is the next best thing to actually being there. The collection features eight classic wines from both countries so you can make your way through this pourable postcard from the comfort of your couch!
Unique. Extraordinary. Unexpected. This tasting flight is for those who are intrigued by the more uncommon side of life; those who appreciate a Pinot Noir but want a little something more; those who enjoy a crisp white but with the kind of edge you just can’t put your finger on. Eight less traditional, highly intriguing wines create this tasting flight—it’s up to you to find out what kind of “weird” you like most.
For our Winemakers’ Selects series, our very own winemakers, Matt and Neely, have selected some of their favorite wines from around the world and created a delightful sampler that ranges from crisp whites to full-flavored reds.
