When the leaves start to turn and the air becomes crisp, it’s a sure sign that Fall is here. Just as the season changes, so do our preferences for wine. While Barefoot Wines has an extensive collection to suit any season, here’s my personal list of the top 5 Barefoot Wines to enjoy this Fall. These wines are perfect for cozy evenings by the fire, festive autumn gatherings, or even just a quiet night in.
When you think of Fall, deep, rich flavors come to mind, and Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception. With notes of dark cherry and blackberry, it complements hearty meals like beef stew or a good old-fashioned Thanksgiving dinner perfectly. Its full-bodied nature makes it a prime choice for those looking to bring warmth into the chilly season.
For those who prefer white wine, Barefoot Chardonnay is a must-try this Fall. Its creamy, vanilla-infused aroma will instantly remind you of your favorite autumn desserts. The flavors of green apple and peach make it an ideal choice for lighter fare like chicken or fish. Light a pumpkin-scented candle and enjoy a glass to truly relish in the season.
If you have a sweet tooth, the Barefoot Moscato is your best pick. Its lightly sweet profile is a crowd-pleaser, particularly for gatherings and celebrations. With flavors of juicy peach and ripe apricots, it’s a great wine for dessert pairings. Try it with an apple pie or pumpkin cheesecake for an unforgettable Fall experience.
Merlot is another red wine that pairs exceptionally well with autumn’s flavors. Barefoot Merlot is plush, smooth, and incredibly versatile, making it a fantastic option for various occasions. Whether you’re cooking up a mushroom risotto or a meaty spaghetti Bolognese, this Merlot, with its cherry and boysenberry notes, will elevate your meal to a whole new level.
Last but not least, the Barefoot Pinot Grigio offers a more refreshing option for those warm early Fall days. With notes of green apple and white peach, it’s a crisp wine that goes exceptionally well with seafood and salads. If you’re planning a weekend picnic amid the fall foliage, this wine should definitely make it into your basket.
Barefoot Wines offers a diverse range of options for any wine lover, but these five picks are my top recommendations for the Fall season. Each has its unique character and flavor profile that pairs perfectly with autumn’s hearty foods and festive occasions. So, go ahead and enjoy a glass (or two) as you watch the leaves change color and fall gently to the ground.
Cheers to a flavorful Fall season with Barefoot Wines!
