Pizza, burgers, wine: the Las Jaras holy trinity. (If more people subscribed to our religion, would there be world peace?) This is the fourth installment of the Glou Glou series, which was created to be the perfect wine for circle foods (pizza and burgers). This light red tastes like sparkles and bright summer fruits. There is so much finesse and deliciousness here that you can’t help but be surprised when you suddenly realize that you’ve finished the whole bottle . Glou Glou has enough acid to stand up to your favorite tomato sauce, as well as intense berry notes that perfectly complement the char of a burger or perfectly cooked pizza crust. Serve this slightly chilled, and you will be the hero of your next backyard barbecue—this is the most refreshing red wine ever, and the perfect antidote to long summer days and the heat of the grill. Most of the grapes underwent carbonic maceration, the classic fermentation method of the Beaujolais, which means that fermentation happened inside of berries themselves, causing them to explode in happy, boozy ecstasy. That’s how you’ll feel when you drink this wine—it dances in your mouth. It is great, you will love it!
