Happy July guys! I don’t know about the rest of you, but in Miami these page few weeks the heat has been brutal. I mean brutal as in you walk outside to your car and get a sunburn. It’s rough! My husband and I love living here but between our two crazy jobs (aka opposite schedules) and the weather, it gets hard sometimes to find the time to do the things we love. So this week I’m excited to share that I’ve partnered with Wente Vineyards to show you one fun way that James and I have come up with the make the most of our moments together. The J&M Indoor Picnic!
One of our favorite things to do when we have a night off tougher, is to pack up our grill, picnic kit, and pup and head out to the beach. We love to cook outside. He cooks, I setup the cheese plate and take the pictures. It’s the best of both worlds and it’s an activity that involves both of our passions. So to combat this insane Miami heat we’ve started doing indoor picnics and on tonights menu is Tacos!
Everything looks so good, even Bo wants a taste! We went with a Wente Vineyard 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon for this meal, which ended up being the perfect blend of flavor and spice. You may remember me posting about the Wente Family years ago, I used to live near their winery in California and attended many dinners and concerts there. I can’t wait to get the chance to head back some day! Making memories with family is one of the best things in life, so teaming up with them this week has been such a pleasure.
If you’re like James and I and live off the Trader Joes cheap wine selection, do yourself a favor. For your next date night or foodie adventure grab a bottle of this Wente cab. It was such a nice change of pace to drink such a fantastic wine and it made our night even more special!
Thanks to the Wente Family for continuing on such amazing work year after year. I look forward to drinking many more bottles of your wine and hopefully making it back out west for a visit soon!
