Spring Is In The Air!
April showers may bring May flowers, but they can also mean lazy weekend afternoons spent at home keeping dry. Don’t let a little rain cancel your spring picnicking plans, though! Have a carpet picnic with that special someone by spreading out a comfy blanket and dining together on the floor. And what’s the best part? No two-part, plastic picnic wine glasses! Take down the crystal and serve up a bottle of Hofer Gruner Veltliner, a food-friendly, refreshing Austrian wine, perfect for picnics both indoors and out!
Besides rain, April brings Easter and Passover this year, both holidays during which people reflect with family, rejoice, and celebrate miracles. Do your part to make a modern miracle happen by enjoying a bottle of Good Karma from Red Tail Ridge. This charity wine is another refreshing spring treat with honey, orange, quince, and citrus notes and a bouquet of grapefruit and apricot. With 10% of the gross profits per bottle going to Foodlink food bank, this is a bottle to rejoice with.
With spring, it's time to break out the rosé so enjoy a budget-friendly yet refined bottle of 2011 Château d’Oupia - Les Heretiques Vin de Pays de Herault. Light-bodied and refreshing with tangy red currant and bright strawberry aromas overlaid with hints of orange peel that makes it easy to pair with lighter fare.
