The temperatures are rising, grills are fired up and your farmers market is about to explode with summer produce. Whether you’re entertaining a crowd or putting together a simple weeknight meal, we’ve got tips on how to pair the entire lineup of NASTY WOMAN WINES with your favorite summer flavors. Read our guide to grilling and wine here.

Progress Pink, Unapologetically Refreshing Oregon Rosé

What pairs best with rosé? This is almost a silly question because rosé is made for summer food and warm summer nights. We love it with grilled eggplant and peppers and pork sausages right off the grill. It's also fantastic with grilled bread, a hearty glug of extra virgin olive oil and perfectly ripe summer tomatoes. Trust us, you cannot screw up this pairing this classic summer wine.

$15 a bottle, $13.50 for wine club members

Pave the Way Chardonnay, Unapologetically Engaging Oregon Chardonnay

Our flagship Chardonnay is racy and bright with a zip of acidity running through lush fruit. This wine calls for grilled fish tacos with a hearty squeeze of lime and a generous dollop of guac. Taco Tuesday will never be the same.

$20 a bottle, $18 for wine club members

Boss Lady Bubbles, Unapologetically Vibrant Washington Bubbly

Boss Lady is not your typical bubbly. She's crisp and floral from her Riesling backbone. We could sip this poolside all day long but it pairs beautifully with spicy Asian dishes, fruit tarts and hammocks. And you cannot go wrong with a simple cheese and charcuterie plate with these bubbles for those too-hot nights when cooking just ain't in the cards.

$20 a bottle, $18 for wine club members

Pantsuit Pinot Noir, Unapologetically Tasty Oregon Pinot Noir

Our Pantsuit Pinot Noir will stand up to some of your summer grilling mainstays. Juicy, backyard burger oozing with cheese? No problem. Ribs sticky with sauce and perfectly spiced? Done. Our favorite pairing might be a sweet and smoky chicken leg in one hand and a glass of Pantsuit Pinot Noir in the other.

$25 a bottle, $22.50 for wine club members

Inaugural Pave the Way Chardonnay, Unapologetically Complex Willamette Valley Chardonnay

Shellfish, shellfish, shellfish. Whether you're slurping oysters on the half shell with a zingy mignonette or you're serving up steamed mussels and clams with crusty bread, our Inaugural Pave the Way Chardonnay is the perfect shellfish pairing. Cold shrimp salads, crabcakes, or seared scallops, this wine is your summer seafood go-to!

$30 a bottle, $27 for wine club members

Represent Red Dolcetto, Unapologetically Vibrant Eola-Amity Hills Dolcetto

This old vines Dolcetto has layers of dark fruit, vibrant acidity, all wrapped gently in notes of spice. She is as lovely paired with glazed pork ribs as she is with grilled portobellos stuffed full of summer veggies.

$36 a bottle, $32.40 for wine club members

Represent Red Sangiovese, Unapologetically Adventurous Washington Sangiovese

This might be our quintessential summer red. Our Sangiovese's classic ripe, red fruit and earthy notes are the perfect match for warm, summer nights. Pair with sliced tomatoes from the garden, fresh mozzarella, basil and top notch EVOO for a light summer meal or serve it up with your best burgers and dogs from the grill. This wine is versatile.

$36 a bottle, $32.40 for wine club members

Represent Red Syrah, Unapologetically Sassy Umpqua Valley Syrah

This wine greets you with a punch of flavor. Her silky dark fruit gives way to something unexpected, a hint of pepper and spice. Pair this sassy Syrah with equally bold offerings from the grill. We like a balsamic-marinated flank steak with crispy, peppery edges and a juicy pink center. 

$36 a bottle, $32.40 for wine club members

 2015 Inaugural Pantsuit Pinot Noir, Unapologetically Expressive Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Pull this beauty out for your finest summer entertaining. It is lovely and meant to be shared with only your favorite people. You want balanced, earthy dishes like duck with fresh summer cherries, grilled wild mushrooms with crusty bread and burrata, or that gorgeous side of salmon that you were eyeing at the fish market that is begging to be cooked on a cedar plank.
