An Autumn Picnic


    Oh, picnics…the one thing about summer I dread parting ways with! When I saw a bump in temps this week and clearing of rainclouds, I thought I would try and squeeze in just one more before it’s too chilly to enjoy a good spread outdoors. Awhile back when walking through the Presidio, I noticed a few wooden picnic tables I had never seen before, so decided to pack up my picnic basket and met a friend for an afternoon to catch up in the sun. If you know me at all, you know that I love setting a scene, especially when it involves a rich a moody tablescape and a delicious bottle of wine…


    With the nice weather, Belle Ambiance Chardonnay was an easy choice (and also around $10…picnics can get expensive, so I appreciate this price point!). If you’re a lover of Chardonnay, this one is unique and delicious. Nothing says fall happy hour quite like a wine with aromas of lemon zest, honeysuckle, and hints of toasty oak, set off by flavors of orchard-fresh green apples, pears, and creamy marshmallows. It was SO good paired with blue cheese and a rustic baguette. If you like a crisper white, their Pinot Grigio is perfect for picnics too–and it has a screw-off cap, to boot. Also, tip for you fellow picnic lovers–if you freeze grapes they make for perfect wine chillers!


    This afternoon was just lovely. No winds, blue skies, just a slight crispness in the air–glasses were half full to say the least!

    Thank you Belle Ambiance for collaborating on this feature!

      LOVE that top! I’ve been meaning to plan a nice fall picnic before it gets too cold. Weather here in DC has been close to 80 and it’s throwing me off!

      What a yummy spread, I am going to have to put together another picnic too while it’s still 80 in Dallas. Going to try this wine this weekend! Thanks for the inspo!

      • Oh good, I hope you enjoy it! Have a great weekend xx

    • Love their label, which is kind of the most important thing sometimes haha.

      • Haha, I am so guilty of buying a bottle because of the label and I have to say, I am rarely disappointed!
