The 4th of July is all about the colors of the American flag – red, white, and blue. Picking out an outfit that matches that theme may be a no-brainer, but what about wine? Today we're here to recommend a 90+ Cellars wine that fits each color. Yes, even blue!
Red: Lot 106 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast, CA, 2012)
A delicious American red, on the lighter side for the summer weather, and at a price that's certainly worthy of more than a few fireworks. This wine practically screams 4th of July! After all, summer is not exclusively for whites, bubbles, and rose. When we asked 90+ Cellars Facebook fans what they plan to sip over the long holiday weekend, we heard from Tina, a wine lover who definitely doesn't discriminate based on the weather.

White: Lot 103 Cotes du Rhone Blanc (AOP France, 2012)
What, you ask? A French white? Why discuss that when we've got some American whites we could bring up? Well, because where would we be without the French! They were after all the ones who swooped in during the Revolutionary War and helped us win our independence! So enjoy some FRENCH fries during this 4th of July and raise a glass of Cotes du Rhone Blanc, because how much more French can that name get?
Blue: Lot 77 Moscato Dolce (IGT Italy, NV)
Don't worry, we aren't trying to convince you to buy some weird new blue wine. Instead we're focusing on the color of the label on our Lot 77 Moscato – a lovely summer blue. Plus these sweet bubbles are perfect for pairing with your 4th of July desserts (strawberry shortcake anyone?) or your barbeque's fruit bowl. You can thank Facebook fan Sara for this recommendation, and she even provided us with a photo:
Of course there are plenty of other options for your 4th of July wine, so be sure to browse our online store (you can do so by price or by type of wine) or visit your local retailer to pick out your favorite 90+ Cellars wine for the holiday.
