Celebrate International Pinot Noir Day


Meiomi Pinot Noir Tinto de Verano

International Pinot Noir Day will take place this year on Aug. 18. To mark the occasion, Meiomi Pinot Noir has partnered with Canadian designer Brunette the Label to create limited-edition Pinot Please sweatshirts.

Too hot for a sweatshirt this weekend? Then cool off with this simple Tinto de Verano recipe. Similar to sangria, this wine-based cocktail is simpler to make and literally translates to mean "the red wine of summer."

Ingredients

1 bottle Meiomi Pinot Noir

750 mL lemon-flavoured pop (Sprite or 7-Up) or equal parts lemonade and soda water

100 mL grape juice

1 orange

1 lemon

1 cup ice

Combine one bottle of Meiomi Pinot Noir, lemon pop and grape juice in pitcher. Wash and slice orange and lemon; add to pitcher. Add ice. Stir to chill. Cheers to patio weather!
