In 2016, I was moving out of my apartment in Shaw and casually asked my roommate if it was cool to have an art show there. A few weeks later, he returned to find vinyl on the walls, dozens of MICA students in his bedroom, and a sweltering DC apartment-cum-art gallery.

The show was called summer bummer and it in no way made an impact on the art scene in DC. "Interesting, hmmmm, and is that a water bottle?!?" would be the gentlest review. However, the title stuck with me. The curator and artist, Claire Felonis, was Greek and tan, and didn't mind a 90 degree apartment in July. We crushed LaCroix, Lily Stockdale helped me make a punch, and it was summer, so how big of a bummer could a lame art show be?

This pack is made for the most brilliant summer after a bummer, or maybe a just another summer bummer. Playful, messy, and meant to be shared with sweaty friends. - Rebekah

 

THE SUMMER BUMMER PACK INCLUDES

Capriades 'La Bulle Rouge' NV: A rich, ripe sparkling that's closer to Gragnano than your typical Loire valley pet nat. Made of 100% Gamay Teinturier, a red fleshed Gamay that gives wines a noticeably darker color and richer fruit profile. A wine that engulfs you with fruit and a velvety loose-ness. 

NoLem 2019: This wine is really cool, because it's Muscadet that goes through malolactic fermentation (i.e. it's creamier, rounder). And it's from Manu Landron, son of Muscadet legend Jo Landron, and Marion Pescheux. They set up their small estate in 2013 and make parcel-specific Muscadet. A tiny bit of barnyard on the nose, a creamy body. 

Bulle Ton Body NV: A ridiculously delicious sparkling from Marnes Blanches. 100% Chardonnay from negoce fruit and the leanest of their bubbles. You won't feel too guilty drinking this out a plastic cup, but it will definitely stand out in the group. 

Sammay Negre 2020: I just spent three days in the car with Jose Pastor rep Nick Africano, driving around Buffalo and occasionally talking wine. The Sammay was created by Oriol Artigas to have a more (price) approachable wine in his lineup. The wine's name comes from a mashup of Jose and Oriol's children's names -- intended to reflect the playful/youthful nature of the wine. Zero sulfur (drink in a day).
