While in Florida, I've been drinking beer and rum over wine, with anything from Brewery Ommegang, Kalik, Presidente, Żywiec, PBR, and Schlitz, and even some Narragansett Beer at Boston’s on the Beach. But the one wine that I was happy to bring with me was the Barren Ridge Vineyards Traminette. I picked up this wine while visiting the winery on the drive down. And it works well in the Florida heat. Its off-dry at 1% RS and has a lemon-grapefruit flavor that fits the climate. We drank it while having a picnic at the pool - perfect choice.
