Summertime Spritz

Woodbridge Summertime SpritzWith an early heat wave blazing through Long Island, respite from the outdoors with a refreshing beverage is no longer an option, it’s a necessity. If you’re not into a cold beer from the cooler or want something a little stronger than a backyard lemonade, turn to the adult classic: the wine spritzer. 

Summer’s favorite drink, spritzers are both deliciously refreshing and sinfully sweet. Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Chardonnay has the perfect drink to help you cool down at any dinner, party or backyard gathering this summer.
