Spring Is Here – Some Wines To Try

Windham Wines Tasting

The hummers are back, rhododendrons and azaleas are in bloom, Walker Farm has opened and the Brattleboro Farmers’ Market is underway. Perhaps most importantly to those of us here for it, mud season 2019 has ended. Spring has reluctantly, but finally, arrived in southern Vermont.At Windham Wines, that means that our collection of wines is shifting to more whites and rosés than reds. The rosé rack offers many choices, at least twenty at last count, from France, Austria, the US, Italy and Argentina so far. New rosés arrive regularly. This week, we expect another few from France, the US and one from Lebanon. Please come in to begin exploring for your favorite rosé for summer 2019.

Spring Wines

As you can see from the images above, spring has finally sprung. Two weeks ago, with a day around 80 and another in the low 70s, the trees got the message and sent out little green buds which last week unfurled. We have reasserted the “green” in the Green Mountain state. And, . . . the hummers are back! Did anyone say rosé? We did. Speaking of weather and rosés, we have our final tasting of the fall-winter-spring 2017-2018 tasting season on June 2nd– rosés.
