Spring is a transitional season for wines. When the weather gets warmer and the mercury in the thermometer starts to climb, we start sipping on the patio and dining alfresco looking for light, elegant, and fresh wine styles. Look to zesty, dry, high-acid whites like Albariño, Txakolina, and Gruner Veltliner for a refreshing culinary treat. These tart and crisp whites are low-alcohol and are incredibly versatile and food-friendly. Pretty pink rosé, especially the light salmon-colored styles from Provence, are also ideal for the season.
