ALL WHITE WINE CLUB

JANUARY 2022

THERE’S SNOW IN THEM THAR HILLS

 

Deep and seemingly endless dumps of snow, like what’s just been experienced in Tahoe, are worthy of celebration for so many reasons. Clearly, any moisture in the state of California this year is an incredibly welcome sight, but when it comes in the form of snowpack that can more slowly feed our aquifers come spring melt it is far more fabulous. 

 

Secondly, just the sheer excitement deep snow evokes in the middle of a winter where there is so much distraction and apprehension can only be seen as extremely cathartic. Get out and play in the snow, whenever you have the chance. 

 

Showcased this month are four fabulous wines from the French Alps to the Italian Dolomites that are the perfect accompaniment to your winter frolic, wherever it may be.
