Summer Wine Events at Wine Geeks Armonk, in Armonk, NY; Barcelona Wine Bar in Stamford, CT; and Crabtree's Kittle House in Chappaqua, NY

Put down that beer. And drop the icy mojito. Fabulous summer wines can be just as cool and refreshing. We took a peek to find out where you can sample some of the best:

Wines for a Hot August Night at Wine Geeks Armonk
August 17, 7pm
$35 per person for education materials
From “Crisp whites, cool rosés, and chillable reds to see you comfortably through the dog days of summer! Discussion led by Sommelier Derek Todd.”

Wine Time at Barcelona, Stamford
Mon – Fri, 4:30 – 6:30 pm
A selection of $5 wines-by-the-glass
Barcelona’s “Wine Time” is the dirty little secret of post-work bitch-fests, when office mates get together, get liquored up, and crab about the boss, plus the restaurant recently earned a spot in Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 Wine Restaurants. We’ll raise a glass to that.

Crabtree’s Kittle House’s Annual Lobster, Clam, and Oyster Fest (and Wine and Beer Fest, Too!)
Friday August 19
$85 per person, plus tax and gratuity
From the announcement: “It’s hot fun in the summertime as we invite you to celebrate everything summery outside and under the stars in Amy’s Garden. Lobsters, clams, oysters, shrimp—hot and cold—plus lots of other things that are fun and delicious to eat outdoors in the summer. We will have some meat there too, of course, for the die-hard meat-eaters (how about a whole, roasted, bone-in rib eye?) and we’ll have some fantastic vegetarian things as well (truffled macaroni and cheese, anyone?). Oh yeah, I almost forgot—there will be wine, too—lots of wine—and some ice cold brew to accompany this summertime feast and Kittle House tradition. “
