I do, however, believe that Gluhwein should only be consumed in the bitterly cold winter months - preferrably after a long day spent skiing in the Alps or walking through a Kristkindlmarkt.
The hard cider. Good Hard Cider.
Oh, and a warm fire.

Agreed, our wine pick is based on dinner that is being served or guest preference when they are over.

Definitely not a seasonal wine drinker here. Barely a wine drinker as it is - we have a large backlog here of gifted wines that we haven't gotten around to trying. Where's the option for "the next one on the rack with a fun label"?

Sauternes feels like fall to me, but I don't drink it often.
