Five Fine Wines for Autumn Time

Patch speaks with the aficionados at Vintage Fine Wines for fall-flavored wines to complement the incoming season.

Temperatures are falling and it is darker earlier in the evening; signs of autumn are upon us. Welcome the season with a bottle of fall wine suggested by owners of Kristi and Frank Lugossy and the shop’s wine director Rick Eadie.

  • If wild mushrooms with grilled salmon or game meat are on the menu, Kristi suggests Norton Ridge Russian River Pinot Noir 2009.  
  • How about a Tuscan red? Vintage Fine Wines carries Crociani Vino Noblile Reserva 1999, which Kristi says pairs perfectly with pasta and sauce.
  • French grapes really are spectacular. The Guenoc Claret 2009 North Coast is from the Bordeaux region of France. Pair with meat dishes or while sitting on the patio on a crisp fall evening.
  • If you’re a pinot grigio fan, Kristi suggests giving Acrobat Pinot Gris Oregon a try. It pairs well with pork or sesame chicken.  Kristi said this wine with layers of apple, pear and lemon zest is “extraordinarily yummy”.
  • For authentic German meals such as onion pie or sauerkraut Kristi recommends an Alsatian wine. A bottle of Trimach Riesling is a classic of the region and also pairs well with sushi or fish.
