Fall Returns To Windham Wines

| Windham Wines News

Where did summer go? Each year, it seems to get shorter. Fall is in the air, and also starting its display in the maples. With fall, Windham Wines begins its seasonal transition away from summer whites and rosés, back to winter whites and reds. The team has continued to taste, exploring producers new to our distributors (e.g., Peay Vineyards in Sonoma and Tselepos in the Peloponnesian Peninsula) and regions or countries newly available to us (for instance, Calabria, Georgia and Croatia). New wines arrive weekly. If you have not been in for awhile, you’ll find lots to explore.

What makes a wine a candidate for the winter list rather than summer? Both the winter and summer lists are meant to suggest high value, i.e., we think that they deliver more for the price vis-à-vis many wines in the same price range. Summer wines are lighter, with an emphasis on being refreshing. They are […]
