Warmer weather has arrived! As we say goodbye to the cooler days filled with sipping warmer reds, it’s time to say hello to white spring wines. Below we put together a few of our favorite white wines for spring:
Ferrari Carano Pinot Grigio
The Ferrari Carano Pinot Grigio is a crisp, refreshing, clean white wine from the regions of Sonoma County perfect for spring sipping. This wine is the exact definition of what a delicious Pinot Grigio should taste like with notes of honeysuckle, lychee, and lemon-lime. A couple of food pairings to consider serving this delicious white wine with are seafood salad or oysters.
Chloe Pinot Grigio
The Chloe Pinot Grigio is also a beautiful wine to sip during the springtime. This white wine has alluring aromas that lead to an intense expression of the Pinot Grigio grape with fruit-forward flavors of white peach, melon, apple, and honeysuckle. Enjoy!
Wente Morning Fog
The Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay is also a lovely choice for spring occasions, such as picnics or warm evenings spent on the front porch. This chardonnay is filled with melon and green apples and complemented by unique flavors of oak and vanilla from barrel aging.
So, which white wine will you choose to enjoy this spring?
The weather is warming up! Do you know what that means? It’s time for picnics and rosé every day. As spring quickly approaches, we wanted to share our favorite rosé for spring picnics – House Wine Rosé Bubbles.
Here’s why it makes the perfect beverage for your next picnic:

Sangria is the perfect drink to enjoy during the summer and winter months. There are lots of different ways to serve sangria; it can be chilled or at room temperature, with white or red wine, and served with a variety of seasonal fruits. Check out these tips to help you elevate your winter sangria recipes this season.
Make Your Own Simple Syrup
Making your own simple syrup is a great way to elevate your sangria recipe and control the sweetness of your drink. Your simple syrup can also be modified to the season you are enjoying sangria in. For example, for winter sangria, you can add cinnamon, cloves, and cozy spices.
Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan, bring to a simmer over medium heat, reduce to low heat for 3 minutes, let the syrup sit and cool to room temperature, add to sangria, and enjoy.
Choose the Correct Wine
When it comes to choosing wine for your winter sangria, it’s best to choose a mid-tier, light, and fruity wine. Red blends or Spanish wines typically pair well and compliment the fruits and simple syrup. Here are a few recommendations:
Gnarly Head Authentic Harvest Red Blend
Bota Box Red Blend
Garnish With Winter Fruits
There are lots of delicious winter fruits that you can choose from when garnishing and adding flavor to your sangria. Here are a few suggestions to elevate your sangria:
Winter Sangria Recipe:
1 bottle Josh Cellars Legacy Red Blend
1 cup brandy
2 cups cranberries
3 cinnamon sticks
1 orange, sliced
1 apple, cubed
1 pear, cubed
1 bottle sparkling apple cider, chilled
Homemade simple syrup recipe (see above)
Combine red wine, brandy, homemade simple syrup, fruit, and cinnamon sticks.
For best results, let sit covered in the refrigerator overnight.
Chips and guac are a game day essential. Light, citrusy beers like pilsners pair perfectly with the taste of guacamole. The Orange and Brew Pilsner is a malt base brewed with traditional German noble jobs creating a crisp and refreshing lager infused with fresh orange peels.
Hot dogs can pretty much pair with any type of beer and still taste excellent. They pair especially well with lighter beers like hefeweizens or Belgian white ales. The Yazoo Hefeweizen is made with mostly wheat malt and uses a true Hefeweizen yeast that gives it a fruity banana aroma with just a hint of cloves.
Creamy pimento cheese is a crowd favorite at a game day party, especially when paired with a hoppy IPA. Before you head into Super Bowl Sunday, make sure you pick up a pack of Wild Heaven Altair. Altair features a bright hop flavor without bitterness.
