My favorite room in my house is my sunroom. On rainy days, the sound relaxes me, and I can feel like I’m still outside, without actually being outside and getting wet. If it’s chilly, a nice blanket and small space heater is all I need.
A few days ago, with that storm blowing in, we had just finished up battening down the deck furniture when I set about enjoying a nice glass of my favorite year round red while curling up with a crossword puzzle. It was the perfect pairing!
Yes, summer is leaving us in the Northeast. It may be close to 80 for the next few days, but the past 2 days reminded me of what is just around the corner — crockpot cooking and pumpkin flavored everything! And as is the custom for many wine drinkers, our wine choices often change with the temperature or the weather.
So, think rain, snow, sleet, hurricane, thunderstorm, or windy fall day with leaves blowing everywhere. Picture yourself on such a day. What would you be doing, and what would you pour into your wine glass while doing it? We’ll just call this “name your favorite weather and wine pairings!”
