The warm weather is
almost here! Below are a number of vibrant and refreshing wines to enjoy throughout the spring and summer months. Whites like the chardonnay and albarino featured are ideal for warm weather, but don’t hesitate to enjoy any one of the following reds. Fresh, fruit driven, and lighter bodied, all the following reds can also be enjoyed with a slight chill.
No category in wine is hotter than rosé! It’s a great choice for those seeking something more than a white, less rich than a red, and more suited for the spring and summer months. And roses are the IDEAL wine to enjoy with the warmer weather and the grilled meats/vegetables served during this time. Below are the latest releases, ready to be enjoyed tonight or this weekend!
Spring has sprung and we’re so ready for a tall glass of adult grape juice. From Sauvignon Blanc to Pinot Grigio to Pinot Noir, check out a few of our favorite wines to relish in this spring.

Nothing says summer like a big pitcher of sangria. The best part of mixing up sangria is that you can make it completely your own. Kiwi? Sure! Honey? Go for it! Brandy? The more the merrier. We like to mix ours with a splash of pineapple juice and Cognac. As for the wine, we like to use grenache because it adds a nice light, fruitiness to the mix. Check out the recipe below and let us know what you think!
The start of summer means another fantastic day for Binny’s Taste at the Track at Arlington Park. Guests sampled from hundreds of domestic and international wines, including special high-end, allocated selections. Some favorites included Faust, Miraval Rose, and Pingus PSI. This event featured an expanded craft beer selection with 20+ beers and food tastings from top Chicagoland restaurants including Jake Melnicks, Bar Toma, Café Spiaggia, Cowboy Grille and River Roast. You can view all of the pictures from this event on this Facebook album. Check it out, and tag your friends!
