10 White Wines for Spring Spring has definitely sprung around these parts and while I am fully cognizant of the fact that I'm going to get caught in a trap, I'm thinking of my wines for spring already!

I know, I'll be out sipping summery whites and Mother Nature's going to dump a whole load of snow on all my spring time aspirations, but so be it. That's the price to pay these days for enjoying the transitional seasons.

Spring seems to last about a weekend here in New York, maybe an entire week if we're lucky, so you have to be prepared for it or all of a sudden you’ll be sitting in sodden shorts like it's August! With that in mind, it's time to look for white wines that make the transition from snappy spring days to the crisper nights that follow them!

    I love the arrival of spring too and I think you are so right, you have to be prepared. A moment too late and you will be in the scorching summer. I am very interested in your selection, I will tell you how I celebrated Springtime last year was by spending Easter in the South of Burgundy and we discovered a marvelous producer called Jean-Pierre Michel a stone's throw from where we were staying, we loved his Viré Clessé "Terroirs de Quintaine", and his Macon Village just a touch greener that was such a perfect pre-dinner drink.

  • Why not a Muscadet to your shellfish, a Gruener Veltliner to your trout or a Sauvignon Blanc to your asparagus -- and a semisweet Riesling from Mosel or Rhine in the golden sunlight of May!!
