The answer to that question depends on many factors: the day of the week, the time of year, or what we are eating at the time. You will find as many different answers to that question as there are staff members.
So I asked the question (again), and made some of your favorite staff members choose just one wine to recommend now. No Harris, you cannot choose two!
Staff Picks for What to Drink Now:
Larry Sharrott, II, Chief Wineaux: Vignoles – Winner of the 2014 New Jersey Governor’s Cup for Best Vinifera (Grape) Wine. Slightly sweet with aromas and flavors of apricot and honey. “A great sipper for a hot summer’s day!”
