We Asked Somms: What’s the Best White Wine for Winter?

“This time of year, I always find myself going to bright, ripe, and occasionally weighty Chardonnay. Cold weather white wine braises, richer cheese courses, or even just wanting something that drinks like wearing a warm blanket all want wines with mineral tonality, and luscious flavors and textures. Though I love falling back to white Burgundy, cool but sunny places like Santa Rita Hills offer wines with both opulence and tension that make you want to just eat an entire wheel of a bloomy rind triple cream cheese in one bite. Liquid Farm’s ‘White Hill’ bottling has been on my mind constantly and is this racy yet broad, mineral yet generous fruited wine that makes you seek food from the first sip.” —John Kelley, chief sommelier, Atlas Restaurant Group, Baltimore
