It’s officially summer in Chicago, which means it’s time to chill the white wine!! To help kick off this lovely season, Ecco Domani has partnered with fashion designer Christian Siriano to create the most beautiful wine bottle EVER. Seriously, it’s so pretty – I almost didn’t want to open it!
If you’ve never had Ecco Domani wine, it’s worth opening no matter how pretty the bottle is. ? For the past 20 years, Ecco Domani has represented quality Italian winemaking and the culture of Northern Italy. After all, their signature Pinot Grigio is (and has always been) 100% Italian! It’s also incredibly easy to drink, especially with all our favorite summer foods… AND it’s affordable! Win!
But more about this BOTTLE! Didn’t Christian Siriano do a gorgeous job?! He was inspired by the florals and bright patterns in Palm Springs (swoon!). In fact, the combination of green and bold pinks were also featured in his Resort 2016 collection, too! This limited edition label + the Pinto Grigio inside = summertime entertaining GOALS.
As I read about all of the inspiration from Palm Springs and Northern Italy, I knew this lemon print dress was the perfect thing to wear for this picnic. There’s something about a lemon print that makes me want to stroll through a vineyard… or just have a glass of Pinto Grigio in Italy ? It’s romantic, light and summery – just like this wine!
And because a picnic isn’t a picnic without food, I brought along one of my favorite easy salads! Just combine mixed greens, quinoa, tomatoes, red onion, cucumbers, feta and a simple homemade dressing. I also love this vinaigrette if you don’t want to make one yourself. So simple and easy – and easy to transport to the park!
