Tracey Thompson of Vine Lore, a local brokerage specializing in boutique wines and craft spirits, recommends refreshing wines for end of summer sipping.

Gruet Blanc de Noirs

This New Mexican sparkler has the body to pair with grilled fish and poultry and the bubbly enthusiasm to stand on its own. $17

Lorenza Rosé

Four Provence classics—grenache, cinsault, mourvedre, carignan—come together in a dry rose with the charm of the grapes’ origins. $18

Alpha-Zeta Soave

Alpha Zeta wants to revive the popularity of Soave, a Veneto favorite, in the U.S. And why not? Its crisp fruitiness, balanced by citrus, is a great nice weather glass. $10

Il Faggio Montepulciano

A simple—but not too simple—well-rounded red, that complements Italian foods with similar qualities. Like pizza. $11
