Summer is already in a full swing. On Northern hemisphere, most of the grapes are getting ready for harvest and while we are waiting for new vintage to come, warm weather calls for a refreshment. During hot summer wine lovers are usually reaching for more light wines; white, rosé and this year hit orange wines. But summer is also a time for ice cream 😀 so why not to combine ice cream and wine?
