What comes to mind when you think about wines for spring dining? Bright, young, light lively? How about white peach and wild flowers, soft effervescence, crisp structure. Vivid, alive, blossoming.
The Wine: Müller Thurgau Alto Adige D.O.C. Kettmeir
The Food: Pasta at lunch then dinner of a roasted root vegetable tarte tatin
The Place: Casa Gialla, Hudson Valley
I drink by the season and think you should to. Deep rich wines in the fall and winter, lighter and brighter in the spring and summer.
Müller Thurgau an exciting grape grown predominately in the Alto Adige region of northern Italy is a spring sipper, summer quaffer.
Paired beautifully with a pasta carbonara that I had for lunch to test the wine. I had a few sips and new it would be perfect for dinner a Bon Appetite recipe from 18 Savory Pies to Make for Dinner Tonight

One of the most respect vineyards in Alto Adige, Kettmeir carefully nurture their vineyards in both the hills around the majestic Lake Caldaro and other areas of the region taking full advantage of the unique, Mediterranean and Alpine, soils and climate to give their wines exclusive personality.
Wonderful, try it.
