July’s pack contains a globe-trotting selection from South Africa to the Similkameen. Italians have elevated relaxing to an artform, and this laid-back, crisp Vernaccia will help you live la dolce vita. South Africa’s winelands are jaw-droppingly beautiful, and The Tea Leaf Chenin Blanc is a testament to the Cape’s 350-year-old wine history. Rooibos bushes grow hug-a-mug with old vines in mountainous Piekenierskloof, inspiring the name of this shapely white. Little Farm Winery is about love, dreaming, and yes, back-breaking labour. Made from Cabernet Franc, Little Farm’s Rosé is properly dry and evokes the Similkameen Valley. Don’t hesitate to throw any of the three reds in the chiller for 20 minutes—they’ll offer maximum refreshment when cool. An easy-drinking Monastrell from Spain props up a juicy grilled chorizo sausage in a crusty bun. Domaine de Cristia is a celebrated Southern Rhone producer, and their all-Grenache country wine is sensational with a lamb burger served on rosemary focaccia. Taste the Black Swift Syrah and you’ll be convinced that Syrah is a truly great grape for B.C.
