Heather Barmore is a blogger and avid watcher of C-SPAN. Her personal blog, No Pasa Nada chronicles her life as a recent college graduate and first impression of adulthood. Seven years later, she is yet to be convinced that she is a ‘real’ adult. She’s working on it. She also writes about public policy, current events and the intersection of women and politics at Poliogue: The Art of Political Dialogue. She has been a speaker at BlogHer, Blogalicious, the AMP Summit and Mom 2.0 covering everything from being a ‘digital diarist’, the relationship between PR companies and bloggers of color and, of course, political engagement. She is currently a lobbyist living in her hometown of Albany, NY just five miles from her parents. It’s awesome, except when it’s not.
I love wine.
There. I’ve said it and now I can go on with my life having gotten that off my chest. I really, REALLY, love Malbec. So much so that it’s on my Twitter profile because given a choice between pretty much any wine ever and Malbec, I’ll choose malbec. My second choice is Tempranillo, in case you were wondering what to gift me for my birthday.
But it’s summer and the last thing I’m craving when it’s 95 degrees is red wine. The thought of a glass of Shiraz right now makes my stomach churn. I am anti-red wine in the summer. So, what is a wine lover to do? I explored and looked beyond the deep, plummy reds and went to the lighter, sweeter side of things. And it has been good.
Below are a few of my favorite wines that I’ve been enjoying this summer. Let me know what you think and definitely let me know what you’ve been drinking. Cheers!
Barefoot Refresh (my favorite is Summer Red) is Barefoot Wine's new summer beverage. This stuff has been my jam since the temperature rose above 75 degrees. It's light and well,...refreshing and it's the most perfect thing to have by your side when your wondering if this is what Hell feels like. Bonus! It's really cheap!
