What Wines Are We Drinking this Fall?
We’ve put together a list of our favorite fall wines so you can pick the perfect accompaniment to your meal, dinner party, movie night, or any other occasion!
Fall Wine #1: Blanc de Blancs
You really don’t need a special occasion to crack open a bottle of bubbly, but our Blanc de Blancs is the perfect way to start a holiday meal or romantic date night. You’ll taste crisp apple and pear with aromas of toasted brioche. The creamy texture of the bubbles and bright acidity compliments a wide variety of foods, but can also stand on its own. We recommend trying our sparkling on your next movie night! It goes great with salty snacks like buttered popcorn and chips.
Fall Wine #2: Pinot Grigio Ramato
If you’ve never tried orange wine, also known as skin-contact wine, this is a great place to start! This wine uses familiar Pinot Grigio grapes, made in the style of a red wine by fermenting on the skins. This gives the wine its beautiful copper color, and a full, yet refreshingly vibrant texture. With notes of papaya, candied orange and earl grey tea, this unique bottle stands well on its own or with gamey lamb, hard cheeses and smoked vegetables.
Fall Wine #3: Unoaked Chardonnay
This refreshing, crisp version of Chardonnay is one of our most popular wines, and you’ll quickly see why. It’s bright, light and packed with citrus flavors and a refreshing minerality. It’s great on those warmer fall days, but it also cuts through rich, creamy cheeses, fried foods and seafood soups like a classic clam chowder. This is a crowd pleaser you’ll want to keep on hand all year long! Find it in our fall bundle.
Fall Wine #4: Barbera
Our Barbera is full in body and texture, with a softness that balances the powerful fruit. You’ll taste juicy raspberry and cherry, with refreshing acidity that clears the palate every sip. Our Barbera is sourced from the sunny Suisun Valley in California, providing rich, ripe fruit. Pair this wine with pot roast, earthy mushrooms or a classic pasta and meat sauce. Find it in our fall bundle.
Fall Wine #5: Reserve Merlot
This bottle is truly something special, as it represents one of the best vintages in recent years for the Merlot grape. It’s full-bodied with flavors of juicy plum and black cherry, with an herbaceous finish. It’s blended with 3% Cabernet Sauvignon for balance, and the result is an easy-drinking, food-friendly crowd pleaser. Pair it with rich, meaty stew, creamy soups or luscious, triple cream cheese.
