Bargain Sippers for Summer's End

Summer is slipping away, but there's still time to enjoy the season with a Labor Day picnic or poolside get-together. Your food and wine pairings will help make the day an event. Grilling a savory rack of ribs? Think about Zinfandel. Indulging your guests in a plate of succulent oysters? Rosé is an ideal pick.
