Well, hello there!
Long time no see!
I promise we're not dead. We've been a wee bit busy with the book part of our world, launching a new book you might've heard us mention one or twice.
Or a million times.
But we're finally back in the wine saddle, thank goodness!
A couple things you might wanna know:
1. We're going to be posting new wine every Friday, just in time for you to hop over to your favorite wine shop and stock up for your weekend!
2. We're on Instagram! And by "on Instagram," I mean we'll be posting via J.T.'s account using #thewinevixen on all our wine posts. Use that hashtag to follow the fun.
Alright, back to our regularly scheduled programming!
Ahh, it's springtime!
Longer days, warmer nights, lots of budding trees and the return of the color green.
'Tis the season for white wine!
Today I've brought you a value wine that's got some bang for its buck. You'll want to pair this one with your spring dishes: anything with chicken, asparagus, mild cheeses, or something light and fresh.
Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Riesling 2014 is a medium-dry Riesling—it's not too sweet, lending itself as a delicious apéritif (but it drinks well by itself, too!). It's lightly floral, tasting of apple blossoms, peach, and lime, and offset by slight minerality, giving the wine a nice balance.
And guess what?
