With temperatures spiking, many imbibers (including all of us!) are simply looking for a refreshing, cooling glass of wine. Mia Morelli and Lynda Paulson joined the hosts to discuss their favorite summer wine sippers and careers in the wine industry. Hosts Marcia Macomber, Misty Rodebush Cain and Lisa Adams Walter chose some of their favorites to enjoy the summer weather.
Misty’s summer go-to sipper is St. Supery’s Dollarhide Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, a bright, crisp and thoroughly refreshing wine to improve long, summer days and night. Marcia enjoys the Seghesio Vermentino, from the Russian River Valley, a wine she’s drawn to due to its tropical fruit aromas and flavors. Lisa reached out further afield to the dry, but refreshing Sorelle Bronca Prosecco, from Italy. Listen in to hear more about their comments on the wines.
As to our guests, Mia and Lynda, they both hail from years in the wine industry. Mia Morelli is a Freelance Marketer. She previously served as Senior Director of Marketing at Foley Family Wines, Brand Manager at Jackson Family Wines and recently returned to wine country from the East Coast after finishing up her Master’s Degree in Business.
