Summer is the perfect time for outdoor shenanigans with our friends, and it seems like we never see the insides of our homes — which is a good thing, of course! So, before it gets too chilly for fun in the sun, we’ve teamed up with Ecco Domani wines to showcase cool ways to amp up three summer events — starting with a tailgating party. Why settle for run-of-the-mill when it’s just as easy to make things oh-so-chic?

The whole point of tailgating is to catch the game while it's happening, so invest in a stylish, retro radio that’ll give you the play-by-play straight from your smartphone. Once you’ve nailed down the sound system, look into a portable grill that won’t take up precious cargo space in the trunk, but still cooks the perfect burger. Foldable bistro chairs will turn the parking lot into your personal, outdoor ristorante, while acrylic cups keeps thing chic and colorful. As for the finishing touch, stash a few bottles of Ecco Domani wines into a sleek, steel cooler, and you’re ready to go!
