Sitting on the patio and sipping a chilled glass of wine is exactly what we want to do come spring! Here, Jamie from the H-E-B Montrose Market in Houston shares her lighter wine picks perfect for sunny days.
First, we have the Chloe Pinot Grigio. It’s crisp with bright peach and citrus aromas. This will pair well with many light dishes like green salads and seafood. $13
Rosé season is upon us, so we’re pouring the Esprit Gassier Côtes de Provence Rosé from France. This has a lovely mineral backbone and is crisp and delicate. Compared to other Rosés, this doesn’t have as strong of a strawberry aroma – it’s more floral. $15
Red fans, we didn’t forget about you! Pinot Noirs are a great lighter-bodied option for spring and you can even drink them with a bit of a chill. Our pick? The Angeline Pinot Noir Reserve. This Sonoma wine is higher quality as it is made in smaller lots with better grapes. It has a great fruit-forward profile that is elegant and complex. $17
