It's HERE, Folks!
My FAVORITE season of the year...FALL! It's time for cashmere sweaters, leaf peeping and pumpkin spice EVERYTHING (yes, I'm one of THOSE people) - what's NOT to love about that!?!?
It's also the time of year we say buh-bye to the light, refreshing whites and rosés of Summer and start embracing wines with a little more heft. Wines like Viognier, oaked Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are all excellent choices which really embody the Fall spirit. They also pair brilliantly with the delicious dishes we all love to enjoy this time of year like Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms and Lamb Ragu with Tagliatelle Pasta.
I recently had the chance to visit WPTV, our local NBC affiliate, to share some Fabulous Wines for Fall with the wonderful Roxanne Stein and John Favole (pictured above). I’ve got both whites and reds at a variety of price points that are sure to suit your palate AND your budget.
