It seems the weather and the calendar haven't quite synced up this year, but alas the cold climate has finally caught up to us and it's time to drink accordingly.
In the colder months we reach for bold, full bodied red wines that we can wrap up in and pair with hearty seasonal dishes. But don't rule out the white wines that can deliver the calming reminder that it will get warm again one day. We've put together a small guide for you of what we'll be uncorking this season.
A classic for a reason. The most planted grape in the world can be grown in a wide range of soils and is known for being tough against the elements, which makes it perfect to give us the thick skin needed to bear the frigid cold.
This zippy Spanish red is full of rich, fruity flavor and pairs perfect with beef bourguignon. Rioja is Tempranillo hailing from the Spanish region of its namesake.
The sweet, dry profile of Riesling is a refreshing alternative to the big wines of the season. A new generation of winemakers from Mosel, Germany are making us rethink this ancient drink.
Elegant and balanced, Smoke Tree Chardonnay is a Minibar staff favorite and offers aromas of apple, pear and stone fruit. The palate is creamy with fresh fruit flavors and a hint of oak.
