Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to summer — a time to head to beach, relax at the pool, finish up the spring yard work, and fire up the grill.

At the Terroirist global headquarters, we’ll be barbecuing tonight and opening up an assortment of wines from across America — a Reisling from Michigan, a Tempranillo from Texas, a Viognier from Virginia, a Sangiovese from Arizona, and several others.

Last year, the Wine Curmudgeon marked the holiday by writing about how much he enjoys Rosé. This year, James Laube suggested opening up some off-dry Riesling, as it’s “a great go-to wine for those occasions where you have a smorgasbord of food.”

So what will you be having? Let us know in the comments!
