As we move further into the spring season and say goodbye to the long and cold winter, many look forward to long days of warm and pleasant weather. There are so many ways to enjoy the warmer weather of spring, whether it’s going for a simple walk, or having a picnic. If the latter interests you, and you’re of legal age of course, why not indulge in some wines that are appropriate for the season? In today’s blog, we’ll be taking a look at perhaps the most ideal wines to enjoy during the spring season, Prosecco and Chardonnay! If that sounds interesting, keep reading below for more information!
Chardonnay, a white wine, has been the preference of many wine drinkers for its versatile yet agreeable taste. Dry and full-bodied by nature, this wine is nearly perfect for virtually any occasion or scenario, and this includes springtime festivities. Chardonnay often has a fruity aroma and taste to it, rendering it appropriate for the warmer weather of spring, though you could argue it as enjoyable year-round. Like many other wines, chardonnay pairs excellent with food, but more particularly mildly seasoned bites. Universally applicable, and a certain crowd-pleaser, chardonnay is an excellent choice for any and all of your spring festivities.
While the seasons are far less polarizing in Italy, prosecco continues to be a favorite amongst Italians, and we would argue that there is just something about this wine that just suits the warmer weather and sunshine. Particularly with fruity iterations of the drink, the playful and bubbly nature of prosecco renders it to be simply a fun wine to drink – which would explain why Mimosas have become a staple of countless brunch outings amongst friends and family. Especially when citrusy flavors are present, prosecco is a reliable hit for any occasion in the spring or summer – we would encourage you to consider it for your next outing! If you’re considering serving it with food, prosecco tends to pair well with smaller bites such as cheese, grapes, and other staples of a charcuterie board.
