If you open my fridge, you’ll also get a good clue of the changing seasons. I feel wines are also a barometer of these changes in nature and in our moods. In summer, we all gravitate towards simpler, easier to drink wines like rosés, sparkling wines and quaffing whites. When fall arrives, we need more serious wines for contemplation and more formal dining. These are wines that accompany the more complex flavors of fall like wild mushrooms and squash.
That’s why for this month, my wine choice sits exactly on the line of summer and fall.
