Our 2017 list of top 10 wines for fall (or early spring if you're in the southern hemisphere!)! The smell of falling leaves is here & it's time for a change from crisp, refreshing sippers to something heavier, earthier, and better with warm, hearty food.


Here's the list: 

1. Malbec from Cahors (France)

2. Cabernet Franc from:
Long Island, New York (US)
Virginia (US)
Chinon or Bourgueil from Loire Valley (France)

3. Red Bordeaux (France)

4. Fiano di Avellino, a white from Campania (Italy)

5. Aglianico, a red from Campania (Italy) especially Taurusi

6. Nebbiolo-based wines from Piedmont (Italy) especially Barolo, Barbaresco, Langhe

7. Sangiovese-based wines from Tuscany, Umbria or other parts of Italy especially Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello or Rosso di Montalcino

8. Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc or the WHITE grapes that go into it: Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne from Paso Robles, California (US)

9. Syrah from the northern Rhône or from Paso Robles, California

10. Rioja (Spain) -- Tempranillo only for M.C. Ice, the traditional Rioja blend for Elizabeth
