Spring is here: Drink it in!

Screen Shot 2016-03-19 at 10.33.34 PM

Happy first day of spring! While summer might be the traditional kickoff to rosé season, I see the world through pink-colored (wine) glasses all year long, but most especially in spring as the weather warms up.

Last year, I learned I was pregnant right around the the start of the season so I had to go without. In the end, I got my own little “Whispering Angel” but now I’m ready to drink in pink.

I’ll be guzzling (ahem) taste-testing different varieties over the next few weeks to make my picks in time for Summer but in the meantime, here are a few of my solid standbys (in no particular order):

  1. Whispering Angel – Provence, France
  2. Weingut Jäger Zweigelt Rose – Wachau, Austria
  3. Domaines Ott – Provence, France
  4. Bastianich Rosato di Refosco – Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy
  5. Wolffer Estate Rose – Long Island, USA

Need help pairing with food? Enjoy this cute infographic to help you make selections. And for those of you celebrating Easter next weekend, remember rosé is a great pairing with ham!
