20 American Wines for Summer
Discover how delicious the American Dream tastes with these 20 craft wines that play well at the picnic table.
Armed only with a vision and a belief in their talent, these 20 producers put it all on the line and came out on top. They overcame the steep odds small-batch wine outfits face—from the sheer economies of scale and surviving those first few years of waiting, hoping and praying what they barreled wasn’t a bust, to selling the stuff themselves on the web and often out of the trunks of their cars. There may be no tastier testament to our nation’s entrepreneurial and creative spirit. Bonus: These bottles—handpicked by our editors—will pair perfectly with your summer feasts.
