Let's Get Ready For Spring
When you think of March, what do you think of? March Madness? Daylight savings? St. Patrick’s Day? The first day of Spring? Easter or Passover? A lot of fun and exciting things happen in March! While we love March Madness and St. Patrick’s Day, we wanted to share a few suggestions to get you into the spirit of Spring. Lighten up your taste buds and get ready for the change of season with these rosé wines and cider!
Hecht & Bannier
Hecht & Bannier Languedoc is from Southern France, bordering the Mediterranean Sea and made with mainly Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault. This rosé offers floral and spicy expression with ripe raspberry, a round palate with flavors of cherry and lifted by bright pineapple. Strawberry, watermelon and pomegranate nuances abound in this delectable crispy and dry wine that pairs with just about anything.
Domaine de Nizas
Domaine de Nizas is located in the South of France near Pézenas. Les Pierres Blanches is made with 100% estate grown grapes. This wine is expertly blended from three grape varieties grown in three different terroirs: limestone, villafranchian (river pebbles) and basalt. Les Pierrese Blanches is named after the limestone terroir which gives it its fine red fruit aromas, roundness and vitality.
You’ve tried Angry Orchard's Hard Cider, now try their Rosé Cider! Made with red fresh apples from France, this cider offers an irresistible rosy blush and apple forward taste with a refreshing, dry finish. It's a perfect beverage to enjoy outdoors with friends this spring and summer or at the dinner table.
