Spring is here with its warm weather, the trees are blooming, and all this puts us in a celebratory mood. So naturally, we all like to enjoy a good gathering with excellent food and good company, but we cannot leave out an excellent wine to liven up the atmosphere.
Wine is the protagonist in the spring. After spending a cold winter resting and waiting, the vineyards come back to life, which is the best time to take advantage of the excellent temperatures and taste all the best products.
How to know which wine to choose?
The best wines are always accompanied by good food, so it is essential to know how to pair them and maintain harmony between acidity, flavors, textures, and aromas. It will also depend on the type of celebration you are planning. For some, the most refreshing wines go better during the day and those with a stronger flavor at night. The best options to enjoy this spring:
RED AND ROSÉ WINES
Red wines will always do for any celebration and accompaniment to any of your dishes, and rosé wines, besides being very fresh, have a lot to bring to the table with their unique aromas and flavors.
