Celebrating the Fruits of our Labor
Labor Day is dedicated to the achievements of the American worker and honoring the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country. It’s also time to enjoy a well-deserved day off and celebrate with a BBQ or enjoy the outdoors with family and friends. Here are a few ways that you can enjoy GIFFT wines while you wrap up summer and move easily into fall.
Get the BBQ Going.
It’s Monday and there’s no school, no work, nothing you need to do but take advantage of the opportunity of an extra day off to relax with family and friends. Plan a BBQ in your backyard and celebrate the last long days of summer with a lovely bottle of chilled white wine. Keep it simple by grilling up some shrimp skewers that pair well with our GIFFT Chardonnay. Herb-marinated chicken with grilled asparagus is another easy combination that tastes great with GIFFT Pinot Grigio.
Plan a Picnic.
What food makes the perfect picnic? Fried chicken, of course! When you’re loading up your basket, start with some cured meats, soft cheeses and crusty bread, then add a tangy potato salad for a side. With a beautiful blanket, some easy-to-carry, on-the-go stemless glasses and a bottle of GIFFT Red Blend, you are all set. Just choose your favorite picnic spot and treat friends and family to great food, great wine, and most importantly, great company. Remember, it’s not about creating the picture-perfect picnic – it’s about enjoying the moment with family, friendship, laughter and love.
Look at your Local Events Calendar.
If you do an online search or look in the local newspaper for Labor Day events in your area, you are bound to find a bevy of activities. From sand sculpting challenges to concerts in the park, many towns and cities provide events that are free and open to the public. Put aside the To Do list for a day and pick something that’s right up your alley or outside of your norm. The important thing is that you make time to enjoy the company of family and friends while doing something fun. You deserve it!
