Refreshing Summer Wine Pairings: Preview for Wine Pairing Weekend

What wine is in your glass when the summer temperatures rise above 90? What foods do you like to pair with that refreshing summer wine? Refreshing Summer Wine Pairings is our theme for Wine Pairing Weekend 2 coming upon Saturday. Stay tuned for some great blog posts for refreshing summer wine pairing ideas, and join the conversation in our live Twitter chat.

Refreshing Summer #Wine Pairings is theme for Wine Pairing Weekend 2 on July 12.

As I explained in my post introducing Wine Pairing Weekend, I find plenty of online events focusing on food and wine separately, but not too much looking at the interplay of food and wine. Wine Pairing Weekend (#winePW for short and on Twitter) is a monthly event featuring bloggers posting about a pairing in response to a particular theme, along with discussion on social media about the topic. This will include a live #winePW Twitter chat at 11 a.m. Eastern time on Saturday July 12. Anyone interested in the subject can jump into the conversation on Twitter at that time, which can also be accessed on our Twubs page for easy viewing and tweeting.

Below I'm linking to the bloggers that have let me know they plan to participate. Thanks to the early responders to this second #winePW! If you're reading this before July 12, you can still jump in with a blog post of your own. Just check out the July intro post for more of the blogger details and email me at winepairingweekend AT If you've come to us after July 12, consider joining us for #winePW 3 on Saturday, August 9, which will have the theme "Wines for Summer's Bounty".
