Autumn Equinox: Transitional Wines To Match the Season
As the seasons turn, consider shifting your wine selections to pair with fall’s wonderful harvest bounty. Fall squash abounds, so consider these wine pairings:
Chardonnay from the Sonoma Valley in California, with its creamy texture and buttery flavors along with the toasty notes from the oak, melds perfectly with the creamy texture and nutty flavors of the squash.
Pair fall squash with pinot noir, which complements the squash with its red fruit and spice flavors. Try a pinot noir from cooler regions, like Oregon’s Willamette Valley or California’s Santa Rita Hills, to add more earthy umami flavors.
