WHITNEY’S MONTHLY WINE PICK: ALWAYS UNDER $15, AND ALWAYS DELICIOUS
Choosing a wine can be an intimidating task for the uninitiated, but any seasoned wine drinker knows that good wine doesn’t always mean expensive wine. That’s where Whitney comes in. She’s here to help you pick a delicious bottle at an even more delicious price.
If you don’t already know her, I’d like to introduce all of you to my dear friend, Whitney Adams. A fabulous sommelier living in Los Angeles, she just launched her wine accessories brand and online shop, Bottle Stock, and blogs about wine and other drinking adventures at Brunellos Have More Fun. We make silly videos together and she’s basically the best.
WHITNEY’S APRIL PICK:
2013 Domaine de Fontsainte Gris de Gris Rosé
$15, Domaine LA
Spring has sprung! This time of year is always exciting, but I really jump for joy because this is when all of the new rosé starts to arrive. The Fontsainte rosé, from France’s Languedoc region in the south, is one of my favorite affordable pink wines year after year. It is aromatic, with bold watermelon and strawberry fruit, but a clean, dry finish. Perfect to accompany a weekend brunch and delicious with Claire’s Salmon Lemon Herb Ricotta Crostini.
