Firecrackers. Picnics. Parades. What could be a bigger celebration than the Fourth of July?

This year, plan ahead for an Independence Day that has it all by purchasing wines for your Fourth of July party. After all, you know that nothing goes better with fun than the right type of wine. Here are five ideal Fourth of July wines you should try.

1. The Federalist Lodi Zinfandel

If you know anything about Zinfandels, you realize they can offer as much surprise as a suddenly lit sparkler on a dusky evening. The Federalist Lodi Zinfandel is no exception. Plan to appreciate its snappiness mixed with a bit of sass. This Fourth of July wine is perfect for midday celebrations because of its lightness.

2. Barefoot Cellars Refresh Summer Red Spritzer

Are you into hanging out poolside for Independence Day? Delight your taste buds with sips in between dips of Barefoot Cellars Refresh Summer Red Spritzer. Forget pretentiousness and go straight for flavor with this 4th of July wine option. Let your palate be tantalized by the undertones of summer fruits, including berries.

3. Mija White Sangria

What would a Fourth of July spread be without the choice to drink a little bit of sangria? You can make your own sangria, of course, or you can try a bottle of Mija white sangria. One of the advantages of this particular brand is its use of 100 percent all-natural fruit juice. You can taste the fresh flavors and enjoy a crisp drink perfect for a super-hot day. Be sure to order more than one bottle of Mija white sangria, as its flip-top bottle makes it very easy to go through several during your Fourth of July adventures.

4. Langmeil The Freedom 1843 Shiraz

This is certainly not your everyday Fourth of July wine, but Langmeil The Freedom 1843 Shiraz is ideal if this year’s Independence Day party holds special meaning. For instance, if you’re hoisting a glass to mark a significant anniversary or the birth of your first child, the price more than pays for itself in the complexity of flavors. Langmeil The Freedom 1843 Shiraz is also perfect for heightened gift giving if you want to thank someone in a big way for all they have done for you throughout the first half of the year.

5. Americana Vineyards Apparition White

Raise glasses of only the finest American wines this year for the 4th of July! Start with Americana Vineyards Apparition White or any of the Americana Vineyards favorites. Apparition White boasts pineapple and citrus tones, making it a refreshing addition for your party. Best of all, this wine’s lack of haughtiness makes it a perfect pick if your party includes down-home recipe favorites like hamburgers, hot dogs, salads and ice cream.
