Aerial opera, in the mud of Glastonbury, or folded --
Sitting in a chair in the back garden and finding the right wine to serve and drink during the various celebrations of the season can pose challenges-especially with so many options.

Underestimate the village of Stophan (£11. 24)
It was produced in our own Southern Hills.
"British wines still don't get the attention they deserve, but that goes against any kind of wine from the continent," Petrassi said . ".
Unlike chardonnay, this Pinot Blanc is not as full as its French competitors, but has a strong stone fruit flavor such as apricots and peaches, while (helpfully)
It's like eating strawberries and cream at home.
"The logo of British wine is lemon flavor, but it is not overwhelming at this point.
In fact, the opposite is true.
During the course of an afternoon, you will want to sit there and have a glass of lingering wine, intoxicated with its spicy.

Hungry Chicks often wander on the ground, which will be a perfect friend of the camp.
"Traditionally Picpouls used to be considered dry and didn't taste much, but this dance has the flavor of citrus and apple blossoms," said Petrassi.
It's fashionable and a little outdated.
There, it is still very complicated for charming people-ideal to match with seafood.
"Since it is unlikely that there will be oysters on Glastonbury's menu, there will always be fish and chips on the way to the Pyramid stage.
In August 5-21, it was a big task to capture the carnival atmosphere in Rio at home.
There is a reliable way to save the Olympic spirit when your fivoda recipe has disappointed you, or the jewelry bikini you ordered doesn't arrive in time: Brazilian wine.
Grapes that are often overlooked
More and more countries are supporting Argentina and Chile's neighbors, and this year's host country produces a lot more wines of all colors than people think, this is largely due to European immigration to the south.
One is Brazilian Chardonnay. £6. 59).
Petra believes that it may come from the new world, but the taste is closer to home: "This wine is very crisp, more European-style, almost Mexican-style, compared to white people in Australia or California, it has a lovely acid seam.
"A bottle of crisp and dry white will never be disappointing at a party, and the source of this particular bottle will surprise you.
When: until the 28 th, if you find yourself participating in the annual opera festival at the exquisite venue of Glyndebourne Manor Park, it is essential to wrap your interval basket with the appropriate elegant wine selection
Petra said that just look at the dry roses and you can see the whispering Angels from Provence (£12. 74).
"In the past few years, with the rise of rosé in this country, sweeter wines from the new world tend to dominate, but people have begun to realize that there is more," he said.
Whispering Angel "very pale, very elegant, very dry"-the sign of Rose in Provence, which has changed the market in the UK.

La giio SA domdocg Superiore (£10. 12)is one.
Compared to regular sparkling wine, La giio SA is made with better grapes and is flexible enough to handle any light finger food, so Petrassi says it's a perfect endof-
Picnic in summer.
He admits, "the sirloin steak may not be available anymore, but it will cover anything you might be able to fill up your basket, mainly pears and Quins.
"It also has very tight bubbles, which means it really bubbles on the tongue.

Maybe there's another one.
