How to Plan a Picture-Perfect Beach Picnic

As heavenly and blissful as they may appear in meticulously filtered Instagram posts, beach picnics have their perils. Sand is inevitable and will find its way into your food. Seagulls are also inevitable. They will crowd around you and will caw for food scraps. But don’t let those environmental hazards stop you! Meals at the beach are easier to accomplish than you think, and they’re so worth it. If you want to have an Instagram-worthy beach picnic that will also be relatively simple to put together, read on.

My Favorite Picnic Wines: Landmark Vineyards

August is here and summer is almost over. Let’s take advantage of the warm weather for only a few more days and it’s time to rouse ourselves off the couch, quit the TV-and-takeout routine, and head outside with friends for a picnic, sipping something refreshing and cool. Bringing the right bottle of wine not only enhances the taste of picnic foods, it adds a pinch of European sophistication to outdoor eating. But choose well! If you’re going to drink all day, you have to plan accordingly.

Day drinking is a delicate art; the wrong wine will have you napping under a tree before the fun day even begins. You’ll want to bring a bottle of wine (or two) that is crisp and fresh, especially when the full heat of summer hits. I have been trying a lot of affordable and summer-friendly wines of late, and today I want to share my two favorite picnic wines: Landmark Vineyards 2016 Overlook Chardonnay and 2016 Overlook Pinot Noir.
