Winter Warmers

By Lisa Mesa on Dec 06, 2020 in The Good Life
Winter Warmers

There are images that instantly bring us comfort, a warm fire, a soft chair, a heavy blanket, now add to that, sipping on something delicious.  All of these things feel like a warm hug which I think you would agree, we could all use right now.  Winter is just around the corner and this is the time of year we retreat inside, light a fire, find that soft chair and get cozy.  We have some amazing suggestions for winter warmers and especially for your upcoming holiday celebrations so let's get to it.

Hamming it up!

If your having a sweet and salty glazed ham this year consider wines that are fruit forward with a bit of sweetness and lots of acid.

What we suggest:

2018 Lo-Fi Dry Riesling, Santa Barbara Co.

2019 Final Girl Chenin Blanc, Santa Ynez Valley

2018 Seagrape Rose of Grenache, Los Olivos

2016 Arndt Cellars McFrink Vineyard Zinfandel, Paso Robles

Laughing Monk "Third Circle" Belgian style Tripel, San Francisco

2017 Seagrape Pinot Noir, Santa Rita Hills

2017 J. Dirt Grenache/Syrah Blend, Edna Valley
