Open Kimono * Riesling *2014

Getting back into the swing of things after a holiday weekend (week?) is always rough. My holiday weekend may have looked a little bit different than most (trip to Chicago, two long days behind the scenes at a fireworks company, and a celebration on the 5th), my recovery was about the same. I picked up some takeout, cranked the A/C, popped in a movie, and planted myself on the couch for the evening. Luckily, I had the foresight to grab a bottle of wine to accompany my Pad Thai!

The best thing about this wine: a great complement to spicy food or a hot day!

Spring Wine

I know this is an unpopular opinion, but someone has to say it: I love snow. Not winter, not cold, just snow. I’ll tolerate the crappy stuff as long as there is snow on the ground or (preferably) in the air. But if there’s no snow… winter, you are dead to me. So, you can imagine my disappointment at the weather of this last week. I am craving spring weather and a spring wine something fierce.

The best thing about this wine: Medium sweet, a good compromise for non-Chardonnay white drinkers

Pairs well with: an evening on the patio!
