The season calls for refreshing, light, crisp, and sparkling wines. Let us help you find the perfect wine to sip and share this spring.
A new season means new ingredients, it’s time to flex your culinary skills and try new recipes with this season’s freshest produce. Whether you’re cooking for one or a group of friends and family be sure to serve a pre-dinner wine like Greenhouse Sauvignon Blanc. The acidity in this vino will actively make your guests' mouth water, stimulating their appetite.

Planning your first outdoor party of the season? Satisfy all levels of wine enthusiasts with a medium-bodied wine like Fioretti Pinot Grigio. This crowd-pleasing selection has more depth than the average Pinot Grigio. It has a smooth and bright palate showing juicy tropical and apple notes balanced with the perfect touch of acidity and freshness.

When your guests are gone and you want an easy-drinking spring wine that’s perfect for an evening of peace and quiet, look no further than Wakefield Bay Sauvignon Blanc. This New Zealand wine is fresh and inviting with a pale yellow color and enticing bouquet of ripe tropical fruits and zesty citrus notes. The fruit-driven palate is balanced by mouth-watering acidity, which ends in a long finish. Enjoy a glass as you relax on your patio or try pairing with seafood, white meats, or cream sauces.
Nothing says spring quite like brunch and mimosas. Create a sweet and bubbly cocktail with your favorite fruit juice and Cielo D'Or Brut Cava.
