Georg Albrecht Schneider, Blanc de Noir Trocken, Rheinhessen, Germany 2017WHITE STONEFRUIT & QUINCE, GENTLE FLINT & FOREST BLOSSOMS While white Pinot Noir might not be foremost on the radar for most of us, the red grape variety has a wealth of experienced being vinified without skin contact in order to produce clear-ish (aka white) wines. In fact, France’s Champagne began utilizing this technique even before exploring sparkling wine!

Serving Suggestion: Pork chops w/ baked apples & halved boiled potatoes w/ dill. Savory beet salad w/ citrus, chèvre, & quince/sherry vinaigrette.
