There’s just something wonderful about that extra hour of daylight that comes just before spring. Sure, it’s dark in the morning, but it’s not like you’d be out on the porch with a glass of wine at 6am…right? It’s the fact that you can drive home in the sunshine and spend some time relaxing in it when you get home.
Shake off the remnants of wanting to call it a night by 6pm and invite a few pals over to share a glass of wine instead!
As the warmer weather begins to envelop us in its embrace, our palates shift to yearning for lighter wines that match the tingle of spring in the air.
We’ve got five of our favorite spring wines that pair perfectly with a sunny evening on the patio.
1. Casalfarneto Fontevecchia Verdicchio Dei Castelli Di Jesi Classico
