It's already sweltering outside, so why would you want to sweat cook in front of a fire on wheels? Instead of a grill, opt for a fire pit that'll earn you major style points and still get the job done. Your guests can take turns flipping veggie burgers, giving you more time to actually sit down to eat them, sip on a glass of Pinot Grigio, and play miniature bowling with adorable penguin-shaped pins. Fun in the sun never looked chicer than this — guaranteed.
Now, let's crack open the Ecco Domani wines and get the BBQ started!
