A taste of what’s on the menu for June – lobster tails in ginger butter on squid-ink pasta, for National Lobster Day on the 15th. A quality California sparkler in the glass enhances the sweet/spicy lobster and all that buttery richness.

Welcome back, my friends!

Hard to believe it’s June already, and summer is just a couple of weeks away.

Hope you enjoyed #NationalWineWeek during the last week of May, from #NationalWineDay on. (Just click to catch up on the posts.)

I’ve got an exciting lineup for you this month, between Wine Country festivals and other doings, Food and Wine Holidays (Did you take advantage of #NationalCheeseDay on Monday?), and some fun new plans for DrinkWineWithDinner.com.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

World Oceans Day on the 8th celebrates Sustainable Seafood. Any excuse to slurp down some wonderful, briny Pacific Northwest oysters with a glass of crisp, citrusy, unoaked Chardonnay!

Not to spoil any surprises, but we’re going to be adding Guest Bloggers this summer – winemakers and winery owners, chefs and restaurateurs, and other prominent pros in the wine and food world – to bring you their unique perspectives.

And as for the Food Holidays – well, there’s lots of great stuff on the menu to enjoy together.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We’ll celebrate National Rosé Day on the 10th. There’s some really delicious pink stuff out there – versatile, too!

We’ll definitely trot out everybody’s favorite crustacean (well, mine at least!) on National Lobster Day (June 15), and venture out into the Wine Country for International Picnic Day (June 18).

You can expect some fun original recipes, of course, with wines to match.

And we might even swing through Spain – virtually, at least – on World Tapas Day (June 21), and Peru on National Ceviche Day (June 28).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For June 18th, National Sushi Day, get ready to see my “Sushi – Ultimate Food Porn” Pinterest board!

Don’t worry – we won’t go thirsty!

June 10 brings National Rosé Wine Day, just right for these long, warm, relaxing June evenings.

And for fans of fun cocktails, we’ve got International Cachaça Day (June 12) and National Mai Tai Day (June 30).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ahhhh yes, the Mai Tai. Pure tropical fruity goodness that packs a lethal wallop. It’s the ultimate “umbrella drink” for a taste of the islands, anytime and anywhere…

Who knows – I might even invent a recipe or two to match the cocktails.

How? Well, my *foolproof* guide – “Rosina’s 5 Non-Rules for Pairing Wine with Food” (Click to download your free PDF) works for beverages other than wine, too.

I’m really looking forward to what this new month has to offer. One promise: I will *not* write about Kitchen Klutzes of America Day on June 13th. (You’re welcome!)

Stay tuned – and let’s enjoy June together!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ll be back soon, my friends, with more “Drink Wine With Dinner®” recipes, pairings, and Wine Country happenings to share with you.

Until then,
Cheers and happy tasting –
Rosina
