As short and chilly days slowly make their way to longer and warmer ones, you’ll find yourself looking away from the bold, comforting wines of winter, and instead reaching for crisp, thirst-quenching choices. This makes springtime an incredibly fun time to explore new wine styles across many categories.
Sunny weather and the new season’s delicate flavors will beg for crisp and lively whites. As accompaniment to food such as fish tacos, grilled asparagus and seafood risotto, consider wines made from the delicately aromatic, fresh and citrus-driven Albarino, Assyrtiko or Vermentino grapes.
Rosé is a natural choice and makes a great alternative for red wine on a warm spring day. The white berry and zesty citrus flavors of rosé wine make perfect matches to spring dishes such as grilled salmon, soft cheeses or feta and mint salad.
