My life recently has been nothing short of chaotic with three trips back to back which involved seeking babysitters, pumping for the baby and getting ready for school to start back up. Trying to come up with spontaneous activities or a summer bucket list is hard to do let alone complete everything on it.
This past weekend my nephew and I headed to the Farmer’s Market for our first time this season. I had fresh cheese, bread, tomatoes, squash, zucchini and watermelon on my list of MUST GET items. It starts at 9 and by 9:30 we had our basket full of goodies.
I had just received The Seeker Wines in the mail and had been wanting to test them out with a little picnic outdoors. After setting up our outdoor table on the grass I laid out the freshly sliced bread, prosciutto, salami, grapes and various cheeses. We were now ready for an outdoor adventure in our backyard. It was nothing special but to all of us it was great because we got to have our first picnic as a family with great food and drinks. Of course, the wine was just for the adults while the kids sipped away on “fancy” apple juice.
I’m a huge red wine drinker and prefer just about any type of Cabernet that I meet. However, for the past couple of months I’ve been trying to acquire the taste for whites especially Pinot Grigios and Sauvignon Blanc. The Seeker Wines has these wines plus Chardonnay, Riesling, Rose, Pinot Noir, Malbec and a Red Blend. “The Seeker” is a lively line of wines from all over the world. It is a carefully curated collection of the best wines from where they grow best, each wine lovingly crafted by a different family winery. They use lightweight glass, recycled and recyclable locally-sourced packaging materials wherever possible and their winemakers are committed to sustainable practices in the vineyard and winery.
For our picnic, I actually preferred the Sauvignon Blanc when paired with the bread, cheese, and meat. However, later that night we devoured some pasta and the Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile made its way to the table. I’d recommend looking for this brand the next time you’re shopping for a new wine.
