Transitional Wines from Summer to Fall


It’s hard to believe that summer’s actually over…especially since the weather’s still in the 80s. While most people reminisce about their summers and hope to relive the warmer days once fall comes, it’s hard to imagine curling up near a fireplace with a glass of wine at the moment. But we promise that time will come. And whether you still can’t believe rosé season is officially over or just are looking for something tasty to transition you into fall, we’ve got you covered with some of our favorite transitional wines that are great in both summer and fall!


Over the summer New Zealand’s Invivo Wines made its debut in the US with three of their wines. Having recently traveled to the country and falling deep in love with their distinct Sauvignon Blanc’s I was excited to try Invivo’s. And it didn’t disappoint. Their 2017 Sauvignon Blanc ($18.99) is not only affordable, but also extremely palatable. It’s acidic, fruity and is the perfect Sauv to take you into Fall.


Stay on the rosé train through the Fall with Stella Rosa‘s Stella Pink Aluminum ($4.99). This light, semi-sweet and semi-sparkling rosé makes it easier than ever to enjoy wine by serving it up in easy, single-serve cans. The wine has sweet strawberry flavor, along with rose petals, making it a perfect fall sip.


Everyone needs a classic Prosecco in their wine rotation and we are currently loving Mionetto‘s Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG ($19). This affordable bubbly boasts flavors of apple, pear, citrus and spring wildflowers, and its dryness makes it easy to drink. This is great to pop open for a special celebration or just for a nice night in.


Wölffer Estate Vineyard is a prime destination for New Yorkers to go wine tasting, especially in the summer. Their Finca Wölffer Rosé ($17) is the perfect addition to your wine rack this Fall. Utilizing their vineyard in Argentina, the grapes in this wine ooze flavors of cherries, raspberries and lime zest, with a fine balance of minerality and acidity. It goes wonderfully with seafood.
