Somm Kit: Hot Weather Wines


THE MORE YOU KNOW, THE BETTER IT TASTES. That’s what the Somm Kits are all about.

Six AWESOME wines for hot weather, a 30+ minute video of us stepping through the selections, cellar tags, and more links for learning in this fun Somm Kit. Two whites, two rosé (one sparkling), and two distinctive and awesome reds.

A $103.94 value for only $88.15 plus tax when you pick up the wines at North Loop Wine and Spirits (or have them delivered or shipped for a small charge). The $12 cost covers our work on the educational aspect, and is offset through the discount offered by North Loop Wine and Spirits. In the end, you learn AND you save!



The Somm Kit! Independent sommelier-picked gems of the wine world to keep you stocked up with exciting juice. 


The value of the Somm Kit: INSTANT access to tasting notes, cellar tags, food pairing ideas, articles, links, and a video of sommelier Jason Kallsen and Angela Kallsen tasting through these wines. Buying the wines through the Somm Kit is cheaper than going to the store and finding them yourself.

This particular pick:

  • Six perfect wines for when the temperature and humidity take over the summer! Two whites, two rosé, and two reds.
  • A porch pounder Vinho Verde (can’t have a hot weather kit without Vinho Verde!).
  • A stunning white from Savoie, France from the rarely seen Jacquere grape.
  • An AMAZING rosé from Spain, our favorite rosé of the year thus far.
  • A super duper Rosé Lambrusco Brut sparkler, which is only available in Minnesota (!!).
  • A Sonoma County natural red blend that also contains a bunch of Chenin Blanc. Sound strange? It kinda is, but in a most awesome way. This was Jason’s favorite wine of the kit.
  • A Pipeno from Chile, made from Pais vines planted in 1870!

Only $88.15 plus tax, through North Loop Wine and Spirits wine shop in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Regular price on the wines is $103.94. You always save money by buying a Somm Kit!

Easy delivery options in the metro area. If you live outside of Minnesota, shipping is often available.
