Succot is early this year and as a result there is a good chance there will be some warm days for those Yom Tov lunches. Although many people prefer red wine, especially at a Yom Tov meal, In invite you to consider a deliciously refreshing white. The Carmel Kayoumi Riesling is a dry and incredible refreshing version of an old sweet favorite. It was my summer go to wine and I enjoyed it with so many friends and with readers on GKC too with recipes that pair well with it, check out the post.
If you insist on red during the warm weather, consider something that does well when slightly chilled. Big tannic red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon don’t do as well chilled and can taste metallic. Try a lighter red such as the Tzuba Pinot Noir or Shiloh Legend. Whatever you choose, pick wines you enjoy and that pair well with your menus.
