May Long Weekend with Sumac Ridge Wine

May Long Weekend with Sumac Ridge Wine

May Long Weekend is here!!! What are your plans? For us, May long weekend has always been about spending time with friends. It’s a reminder that summer is just around the corner, and the season full of sun and socializing begins! This May long we will be hanging out with friends ( like my dear friend Jess ), laughing, playing games, and sipping on Sumac Ridge wines!

May Long Weekend with Sumac Ridge Wine

Scott tends to drink red wine, as well as many of our other friends. However, I prefer white!! So when we host, we always like to have both on hand!! This weekend we will be enjoying the Sumac Ridge Cabernet Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc – two delicious wines offered by Sumac Ridge that are perfect for drinking with good company. This long weekend we are hosting a games night. I love moments like these because it is a chance to put phones away, and interact with friends in a fun environment. As parents we are always so focused on our kids – making sure they are healthy, safe, happy and having fun. It’s important to remember that parents should also take the time to have fun too!

Our door is always open to friends. Scott and I LOVE to host!! The best times are the impromptu visits where a casual glass of wine can lead to an entire evening of fun and laughter. You do not need to go out to have a great time. Our wine fridge is always stocked for this reason 😉 We are so thankful that Jess lives in our neighbourhood and that we can have these moments often!!
