Grüner Veltliner. It’s the perfect complement to spring—and spring veggies—like radishes, haricot verts, and fiddlehead ferns, which can be difficult to pair with wine.

Sancerre. Super fresh and aromatic, it nicely complements après snacks.

Chablis. Premier Cru Chablis is probably the best value drinking in the world. Super minerally, drier, and with amazing structure, Chablis is my favorite type of white wine.

Chenin Blanc. It’s the unsung hero of the Loire. A dry Chenin is a structure powerhouse. It has great acid and ripe fruit.

Rosé, Rosé, Rosé! My affinity for any rosé has more to do with the tradition of patio drinking than the flavor of the wine itself. No one has ever had just one glass of rosé. Drink as often as possible!
