Hunt Cellars Prescribes Wines to Lighten Dark Winters
The weather is dark, wet, cold and maybe even snowy. The holiday spending credit card bills are a few days away. Tax season is right behind that. Yuck! But Hunt Cellars says that wine will cure those winter blues and remind you that Spring, sunshine, and better days are just around the corner and a sip away.
A good wine, good music and some tasty appetizers or a hearty meal can transform a dreary, dull evening into a pleasant evening filled with laughter and light. But the wine world is wide. What wines to choose? Renowned vintner and owner of Hunt Cellars, David Hunt, has plenty of suggestions to make those long, dark winter nights warmer and brighter.
“Wine is magical,” said David Hunt, owner of Hunt Cellars. “The right wine makes any evening better. In the middle of winter try choosing wines with tropical notes to chase the winter blues or choose a traditional wine like a rich Port and settle into a warm evening by the fire.”
Below are David’s top five suggestions:
Hunt Cellars’ 2014 Chardonnay “Moonlight Sonata” is perfect for your imagined tropical escape.
Hunt Cellars’ “Cinq D’Blanc” is a proprietary blend of five white wines and is produced to create a tropical exciting wine experience.
Hunt Cellars’ 2014 Pinot Noir “Imagination” has all the fruit notes of strawberry, cherry raspberry and vanilla and adds a sweet berry kiss on the long finish.
Hunt Cellars has two wines, “Cabovation” Reserve Cabernet and “Rhapsody in Red” Meritage blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Cab Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot that many wine lovers enjoy with a platter of great cheese, charcuterie, salami and cheese spreads.
Hunt Cellars offers two Port wine blends, “Naked Passion” Merlot Tawny Port and the Cabernet Port “Good Vibrations” which taste like a chocolate covered Christmas cherry.
