Newsweek: Fall Equinox Means Red Wine Season: 9 Bottles to Celebrate the Official End of Summer – Featuring Kumeu River
“Fall equinox may be the official end of summer, but the seasonal entry marks yet an even more special time—the start of red wine season.
If you enjoy all varieties of wine as much as I do, then you’ve likely had a sip of Pinot Noir and Cabernet on even the hottest of days during the summer. Nothing, however, brings out the beauty of the colorful changing of leaves or the crispy cool weather conditions quite like red wine. Not to mention the many at-home chefs who will finally break out the crock pots and Dutch ovens to cook up hearty stews and soul-warming soups, which are even more fulfilling when paired with a glass of full-bodied vino.
Below you’ll find a list of 10 red wine contenders that will surely bring the celebration on any day this fall.
