Wine Tip of the Week - Springtime Means Fresh Fruit...Wine me Please!

Springtime is upon us again. One of my favorite parts of spring is the abundance of fresh fruit at the grocery store and Farmer's markets.
Need a wine that pairs well with fresh fruit - either solo or in a fruit salad?  Some great white wines to accentuate fresh fruit are:
  • Riesling
  • Gewürtztraminer
  • Viogner (especially with peaches).
  • Moscato
  • Chenin Blanc
Also, keep Rosé in mind for savory dishes that include fresh strawberries. If you are going for a sweet dessert made with some wonderful fresh fruit- you will need to go to dessert wines for your pairing. Remember, the wine needs to be sweeter than the dish served with it. Enjoy!
