Happy Friday everyone! We are just hours from the weekend and with the gorgeous spring/summer we’re experiencing, lots of time outdoors! Especially in the evenings when temperatures are a little cooler and the humidity has lowered {yes that is already a thing here in the South}.

Joshua and I have found that evenings are our favorite time to be outdoors during the summer months. After our back deck received a little update, we have spent a lot of evenings dining out there. On our recent trip to the Cataloochee Ranch we experienced the most beautiful weather and wanted to spend every second we could outdoors. Also, to soak up the tranquility of the ranch and the beauty that surrounded us. Our first evening, we decided to set up a picnic in the valley right next to a small pond. The scene was beautiful! We laid out our quilt, pulled out a couple of sweet treats, and Ava Grace Rosé and Ava Grace Pinot Grigio

Both of these wines have recently been launched and are perfect for enjoying during the warmer months and outdoors! 

The rosé, a personal favorite of mine, is fruity, floral, and delicate. Making it a great pairing for light summer dishes or sweet treats. Which is exactly the route Joshua and I went! We both have a large sweet tooth and enjoy drinking a great glass of wine with our desserts. We opted for chocolate chip shortbread cookies during our picnic at the ranch. Which honestly, was a great pairing!

The Pinot Grigio is vibrant with hints of citrus and pear. Another perfect wine to enjoy outdoors with some of your favorite summer meals. If you’re hosting an outdoor BBQ or cookout with delicious skewers, this Pinot Grigio would be a delicious pairing!

While sipping our rosé and Pinot Grigio in the valley at Cataloochee Ranch, we found ourselves in an exquisite life moment. Amazed by the beauty that surrounded us and getting the opportunity to celebrate our time together. All while enjoying the exceptional quality and taste of the Ava Grace wine’s. Life is all about those little pleasures! 

It was one of those moments we’ll always cherish. So if you’re headed on a vacation soon or want to plan a sweet evening with your significant other plan a picnic. Grab a bottle or two of Ava Grace Rosé or Pinot Grigio, some of your favorite snacks, a quilt, and enjoy some quality time outdoors together! With Ava Grace your little life moments will be special celebration, while receiving grace in every glass! Just as ours was during our picnic on the ranch.

      It was wonderful! And thank you gal 🙂 one of my new favorite combos. Couldn’t recommend the hat or tank more – obsessed with both.

    A glass (or two) of Rose is perfect this time of the year! Your picnic looked amazing. You just inspired me to have a sunset picnic!

      Yes girl, so available, which is great! You’ll definitely need to. Especially the Pinto Grigio – I bet Cooper would like that one.

    Well first of all – I sure do love these photos! That picnic looks so fun and relaxing. Your outfit is also gorgeous and I think the skirt needs to be in my life right away! Secondly – the wine sounds amazing! Now I’m craving a refreshing glass of rosé, that’s for sure!

    • May 14, 2018 / 10:14 am

      Aw thank you Stephanie! You 100% need this skirt in your life, I agree. The wine is SO good! I’m a big fan of both of the wines – especially the Pinot Grigio – think that has actually turned into my favorite out of the two.
