There’s no season like summer for outdoor entertaining: the weather is warm, the nights are long, and some of the best produce the country has to offer is at peak seasonality. As the season winds down, many Canadians are looking to squeeze the absolute most out of al fresco dinner season – those pre-8 p.m. sunsets are just around the corner! To help you elevate your next outdoor soiree from good to great, we surveyed four entertaining experts from across the country on how they’re setting their outdoor dinner table this season. Plus, pair your outdoor entrees with some spectacular wines, all for less than $15, as recommended by Christopher Waters. A toast to the season!

If you have a question on wine, e-mail it and we’ll answer a selection in the newsletter and on our website. Please share this newsletter, and if it was forwarded to you, sign up for this and other Globe and Mail lifestyle and arts newsletters. – Rebecca Tucker
