I have always loved the idea of wine flights. When you order a flight in a restaurant or wine bar, you’re served multiple, small glasses of wine. Most of the time the flight has a theme: sparkling wines, red wines from California, Chardonnays from France, etc. Instead of being stuck with a large glass of wine that you may or may not enjoy, flights give you the opportunity to sample many. At Ponte, we offer our own themed flights. In our online store you might have seen collections of wines for Christmas, Hanukkah, autumn…and most recently, for spring. In our new Spring Flights you’ll find wines that represent everything we love about this time of year: warmth, sun, colors and bright flavors. Flights are great for parties, as gifts, or if you’re new to Ponte and would like to get an idea of what our wines are all about.
Spring Essentials: This flight includes our Pinot Grigio, Tempranillo and Juliet wines. Pinot Grigio and Juliet pair perfectly with spring salads, like arugula with tomatoes. And if you’re craving something a little bolder for burgers or grilled pizzas, you’ll love Tempranillo. Order Spring Essentials here.
Sweet Spring Treats: If sweeter wines are more your preference, Sweet Spring Treats is the flight for you. Sparkling Rose Spumante is a lovely rose wine bursting with sweet bubbles. It will take light appetizers, like prosciutto-wrapped melon, to a new level of deliciousness. It’s also great with sun-ripened strawberries. Our best-selling Beverino is a red wine on the sweeter side that is great with anything grilled, especially bbq chicken and teriyaki kebobs. Finally, Isabel is full of ripe peach and apricot flavors that will be delicious with ice cream and grilled fruit. A wonderful Mother’s Day gift! Order Sweet Spring Treats here.
