The snow may have just melted, but our thoughts have turned to Spring with warmer weather, longer days, and more celebrations held outside. So what wines should be on your table at this time of year?

wine in the garden“Now is the perfect time to showcase wines with lighter, fruit-forward flavors – something crisp and chilled,” says Larry Sharrott, II, owner and wine maker at Sharrott Winery.

Dry and Semi-Sweet White Wines are the perfect complement to your Easter dinner, Mother’s Day brunch or Graduation party.

Recommended Wine for early Spring 2014:

Pinot GrigioLight-bodied and dry, the food-friendly Pinot Grigio has flavors of pear and lime with a lingering finish. Great with cheese, chicken, fish or light pasta dishes.

Vidal Blanc – Fragrant and light-bodied, dry yet fruity with strong citrus and layers of pineapple for a tart mouth-watering finish. Delicious with egg dishes, salads and fish.

Unoaked ChardonnayMade from our finest fruit, fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures for natural fruity, crisp flavors. Serve with light appetizers and poultry dishes.

Dry RieslingOur Dry Riesling has a touch of sweetness with a wonderful floral aroma. It is crisp and clean in the mouth. Perfect with poultry, ham or Asian cuisine.

RieslingA semi-sweet aromatic wine that is a delight with food or by itself. Fermented at low temperatures to retain the wonderful fruit aromas. Smooth on the finish. Try with poultry, ham or sausage dishes.

For your Spring Celebrations, try this recipe for Broccoli-Cheddar Quiche. Pairs well with our Pinot Grigio, Vidal Blanc or Unoaked Chardonnay!
