The year is long and with it comes all fours seasons. Summer, fall, winter, and finally spring all rolling over the course of the year. Finding the best wine to accompany the changing seasons can seem like an impossible challenge for many people. We know of a few wines to enjoy during the changing season. They’ll help to liven up the spirit of the season and see you through the year.
White wines are excellent during the summer months. Once they’ve been chilled, they’re excellent for quenching a thirst on a hot summer day. Red wine with a full bodied flavor is another favorite during those hot seasons. Drinking a mixture of each over the course of the summer accompanied with summer treats will help to cool down even the hottest day.
When serving whine outdoors during the summer, keep a mix of water and ice available. This will help to keep the wines chilled during a hot summer day. Keep the wines out of direct sunlight as well so they don’t ‘cook’ while in the bottle.
Spring ushers in warm weather and a chance for new beginning to start taking place. Light dishes are served during the spring months to help usher in the summer time. Light and aromatic wines pair well with these dishes and encourage people to enjoy the spring season. Moscato, Chenin Blanc, and White Blend are a few excellent summer wines to enjoy during the springtime.
The changing colors of the fall season are beautiful to watch. The fall season calls upon wines that are full bodied, but light tasting. Red wine complements many of fall foods served during this cooler weather. The full bodied white wine is also an excellent wine to go along with the harvest foods of the fall season. Sparkling wine, Merlot, and Pinot Noir are just a few people drink during those cool winter months.
Winter brings with it a deep chill that can be hard to fight back. Winter is a time of celebration and heart-warming comfort foods. Full bodied red wings have been hailed as the kings of winter for their flavor and excellent accompaniment to comfort foods. Sparkling wines are an excellent addition too for those looking for something a little different. Oaked Chardonnay, Malbec, and even Cabernet Sauvignon are just a few winter wines everyone can enjoy.
There is a wine to fit every occasion and each season. Even when the year is passing by to blend in with a new one, there’s always a time for a celebration. Why not try one of these wines when you feel a need to celebrate the season?[Image Credit]
