Longer days and warmer nights provide the perfect excuse to enjoy a relaxing summer wine night at home. Whether you need a chance to unwind after a long day or an extra reason to look forward to the weekend, we realize that sometimes staying home can be more fun than going out. What could be better than reminiscing over past vacations, catching up with friends, and soaking in the summer sun without having to fight the crowds.
However, a perfect wine night cannot be accomplished without all of the necessary essentials: the ideal ambiance, delicious food, a great playlist, friends, and of course, wine. Here is the BOXFOX guide to host your very own wine night.
The ideal ambiance // The perfect wine night requires the perfect vibes to set the tone of the evening. To us, this means twinkling lights surrounding our deck, comfy blankets and pillows, and a view of the sunset to top it all off.
A great playlist // With portable speakers and a hit playlist, any wine night is bound to be a success. We made sure to have Summer Friends by Chance the Rapper, Be Alright by Ariana Grande, Walk to the One You Love by Twin Peaks, and Real Love Baby by Father John Misty on our summer list of songs.
Delicious food // No gathering is complete without a meal. Fresh salads, a charcuterie plate, and a homemade flatbread will be a sure hit. Check our favorite choice: Gjelina’s mushroom and goat cheese flatbread.
Friends // Most importantly, don’t forget to invite your best buds to enjoy this wonderful evening with you. Surrounded by great company, the evening is guaranteed to be a night filled with good conversations and lots of laughter.
Wine // The perfect wine night cannot be completed without, well, of course, wine! We enjoyed a tasty bottle (or two) of Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc.
