Wildflowers and Wine
The blossoming Bluebonnets and Indian Paint Brushes seen along Texas highways have indicated the change in season. With spring in full bloom, what better way to fully appreciate the beautiful wildflowers than by picnicing amongst them with some of your favorite Messina Hof wines!
While enjoying a nice picnic this spring, choose crisp light white wines filled with fruity flavors such as: Pinot Grigio, Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc, these wines will be most enjoyable with your picnicfoods. These white wines will help replenish your palate and truly bring out the flavors in your food.
For warmer weather, a glass of chilled Rose wine fits perfectly. It is acidic, but still fruity and is a perfect fit for spring and summertime!
Picnicing with red wines can be a challenge, however a lighter red wine such as Pinot Noir is more suddle and will not overpower any of the foods you bring to the picnic. The less alcohol content the wine has, the more suitable it will be for your afternoon amongst the beautiful Texas wildflowers.
