Spring is coming! Are you ready for a change?

Up in Toronto, where the winter had been long, Beppi Crosariol is finally uncorking a Soave. Spring officially begins on Saturday and many of us are ready to embrace it–enologically speaking.

Beppi also happens to the be wine columnist for the Toronto Globe and Mail. His column today is about changing what’s in your wine glass with the seasons, which is the heart of my book, A Year of Wine: Perfect Pairings, Great Buys and What to Sip for Each Season. It’s a really good article that is part book review, part profile and part wine picks. Be sure to check it out!

Which wines are you looking forward to having in your glass as the weather warmer, the days get longer and more vegetables become available?

  1. I like Rose, White Burgs(Bourgogne variety, price is always a factor),Viognier,Arneis,Prosecco and Loire SB’s.
    I can’t really say that I start drinking them when spring comes. I always drink what I like and I’m in the mood for.
    Having said that, I thinks it’s fair to say I drink more of them when it gets warmer as I like the cool refreshing aspects that a glass of white brings.
    I also enjoy Lemoncello that I make myself. That is very refreshing from the freezer and works great as a digestivo!
    Hope you have a great spring/summer.

  2. That’s the first time I saw the abbreviation “fwiw (for what it’s worth)” thanks for expanding my internet abbrev vocabulary, Tyler.

    I am so excited for everything that Spring will bring. Life thaws and the air sings with aromas from the dirt, grass, and newly opened buds–and this is coming from a person with pollen allergies! More than anything, Spring also means Summer is around the corner, and I’ll finally be able to taste a bottle of the Dark Rosé I worked on at Tin Cross. Fwiw, It will be a great feeling to have my work come to life the same time the world does.

  3. Although I’ll drink a nice rosé any time, they all seem to taste better when the sun is shining and the weather is warm.

    Here in the Pacific Northwest, it’s been a cold, wet winter and we’re really looking forward to Spring weather and sipping wine on the patio!

    Beaujolais-Villages, Lambrusco, Pinot Gris–here I come!
