Grilled Chicken Skewers

Summer is weeks away and I can’t wait—no school drop off or pick up, Little League playoffs begin and summer grilling kicks into high gear. That means easy grilling and backyard entertaining move to the forefront.

To start things off in that direction, I’m sharing these grilled chicken skewers and Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc. Kenwood Vineyards has been crafting premium wine for more than 45 years in Sonoma Valley. Each varietal is crafted with unique character inspired by Sonoma’s diverse terroir, showcasing the best of what the region has to offer. The Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc is my wine of choice when I want something fruity and light, especially since it has notes of passion fruit, lychee and white peach. This one has all the touches of summer in a sip.  Along with that, to keep things simple, the 2015 Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc is made with a screwcap top, making perfect for dining al fresco. The only thing that would make it better is if someone else could run the grill.

I can’t complain since I’m super picky about how my food is grilled and I’ll take cooking outside over standing in the kitchen any day. There’s just something about grilling that keeps me in the mix when I’m entertaining—everyone hovers and they are great about making sure my wine glass is well filled.
