Hosting a Wine Country-Inspired Outdoor Party

The Arrival

Your backyard banquet should evoke casual wine-country living, so save the table for the main course, and pour everyone a glass of white or rosé wine and savor appetizers while gathered in the kitchen or porch . 

The couple loves to dish wood-fired olives, as everyone assesses the bounty of BYOB wine, strategizing which bottles to open and when. 

The whites they poured  first include Barton Family Wines’s 2011 The River, a blend of Grenache Blanc and Viognier, and Cypher Winery’s 2010 Chardonnay. 

Then, it's  on to the rosés: a L’Aventure Rosé, made from Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache; and Ranchero Cellars’s  Galaxie Rosé, blended from Carignan, Mourvèdre and Grenache.
