Embracing Springtime...

As the cold grip of winter loosens it’s hold and the first buds of new life start to appear, there’s an undeniable sense of anticipation in the air. Springtime is a time of renewal, of blossoming flowers, longer days, and feelings of freshness. It’s also a perfect opportunity to indulge in beverages that complement the seasons mood and flavours. From light and crisp wines to refreshing spirits, here at Wine and the Wood, we have produced a guide on what to drink during this delightful season.



Pinot Grigio

With the arrival of Spring, there’s nothing quite like sipping on a glass of chilled wine as you soak up the sunshine. Opt for wines with bright acidity and floral notes that perfectly capture the essence of the season.

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc, with its zesty citrus flavours and herbaceous undertone, is always a classic choice. Alternatively, consider a refreshing pinot grigio, which pairs beautifully with Springtime salads, seafood dishes and light pastas.

Rosé wines are synonymous with Spring and are the perfect bridge between the lightness of white wines and the complexity of reds. Their vibrant hues mirror the colourful blooms of the season, and their crisp, refreshing profiles make them ideal for outdoor gatherings and picnics. Look for rosés with notes of strawberries, watermelon, and citrus. Pair them with grilled vegetables, fresh salads, or creamy cheeses for an excellent springtime experience.

Gin, with it’s botanical-infused flavours, one of our favourites at Wine and the Wood, is an essential springtime spirit. Crisp and refreshing, a well-made gin and tonic is the perfect drink for enjoying sunny afternoons or mild evenings. Experiment with different gin varieties, from classic London dry gin to floral and citrus-forward options. Pair your G&T with a slice of cucumber or a sprig of fresh mint for an extra burst of freshness and enjoy the simple pleasure of this timeless cocktail.

For those who prefer spirits with a lighter profile, an option like vodka is an excellent choice for Springtime sipping. Mix up a refreshing vodka soda with a splash of lime or try some flavoured vodkas to spice things up a little. These beverages are perfect for outdoor gatherings and barbecue parties, allowing you to kick back and enjoy the vibrant energy of Spring.
