Planning a Picnic? Pack These Three Local Treats in Your Basket


Posted on May 28


If the recent warm weather is turning your thoughts toward picnicking, there’s a few items you should consider packing in your wicker basket. Locally-plucked fruit abounds in the region’s farmers’ markets and grocery stores right now – you’ll find everything from fresh strawberries and apricots to cherries, blueberries and early peaches. Pair this sweet bounty with McConnell Estates’ blush-pink raspberry sparkling wine, an ebulliently effervescent, perfumey and delicately fruity quaff. The perfect picnic wine, this berry-infused Blanc de Blanc is also excellent with cheeses and dessert. And if you don’t have time to whip up a batch of homemade snickerdoodles, drop into Ettore’s for a dizzying selection of beautiful cookies - don't miss the almondy, flower-embellished petit fours or vivacious lemon bars.
