Spring is a time for rest after battling all that the winter season gives. One of the best ways to enjoy the promise of warmer weather is by cracking open a bottle of wine and enjoying some fresh sunlight. Spring also brings some exciting holidays that go best with friends, family, and wine. Located in Katonah, New York, and serving Westchester County, Cask Fine, and Rare Wines offers our spring guide on the best wines for spring, as well as the ideal foods to pair with them.

Wines for Spring

If you find yourself wondering which wines go best with the coming sunshine, Cask Fine and Rare Wines has our spring guide to help you. The following wines are the most popular varieties in the springtime:


Spring is filled with bright, beautiful pastel colors as plants revive themselves and flowers begin to grow. Rosé evokes that same sense of cheer with its pale, pinkish coloring.

Rosé is also best served in temperatures that aren’t too hot or too cold. Because rosé is a mix of red and white wine, you must keep it at the right temperature. White wines are usually stored in 50-degree temperatures, while red wines require a warmer environment. Rosés are stored at a happy medium – around 60 to 65 degrees. This makes rosé the perfect spring drink.

Lighter Red Wines

Just like rosés, lighter red wines give off a transparent, light red color perfect for the spring season. But red wines can work with approaching warm weather in a way that rosés cannot. It can give you the deep, rich notes you want in a refreshing, low-alcohol beverage that keeps you cool. Customers should look for red wines with a low alcohol level, high acidity, and low tannin.

Sparkling Wine

Celebrate longer days and warmer weather by popping open a bottle of sparkling wine. This wine is great for adding a light alcoholic beverage to any occasion. It can also be ideal for celebrating springtime holidays, like Easter. Try out a delicious Prosecco during the holiday season this year.

Delicious Spring Pairings for Food and Wine

Those looking for inspiration for their next spring gathering can find it at Cask Fine and Rare Wines. Our experienced team offers the best food and wine combos for any Easter or springtime party, including:

  •  Lamb stew: This meal tastes best when paired with Mourvedre from Bandol or Syrah from the Northern Rhone. Consider adding some spring vegetables for a healthy touch.
  •  Smoked trout: An ideal springtime meal, customers can grill some smoked trout with a delicious horseradish sauce. Pair your meal with White Burgundy.
  •  Grilled salmon: Warmer weather means it’s time to fire up the grill for some grilled salmon with a side of asparagus. Serve your dish with Gruner Veltliner or Provencal Rosé

If you want a classic Easter holiday pairing, lamb dishes can go great with a Syrah or Pinot Noir, depending on how you plan to cook your lamb. Our knowledgeable staff is here to offer advice on the best lamb and wine pairings for your family and friends.
