Drink pink! Make rosé your year-round go-to wine

Every year, a groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil emerges from his burrow and predicts whether we’ll have an early spring or six more weeks of winter. Whether you’re yearning for another snow day or counting down the hours until you can pull your flip-flops out of storage, we’ve got the perfect elixir. Curl up in front of the fireplace, binge-watch your favorite show and grab a glass of rosé. Chances are when you think of rosé, you’re picturing lounging around the pool in your shorts, wide-brim

The nose knows: Why do people swirl and sniff their wine? (You should too!)

If you’ve ever seen someone with their nose buried so far in a glass of wine that it appears they’re trying to snort it, you might dismiss the action as a pompous gesture. Especially if they then start prattling about the aromas of wet dirt, leather and raw meat. Wine is a multi-sensory experience and if you don’t sniff before you sip, you may miss out. That’s because what we describe as flavor is made up of about 75 percent smell and 25 percent taste.
