Best wines of 2013 just before summer begins.

New Hampshire's best wines of 2013 just before summer begins, represents what I consider to be the very best value in red and white wines tasted in the first five months of 2013; so much so is the case, that these are wines I've bought (In New Hampshire), tasted, and have or would buy again without a second thought; in fact I have eagerly done so. They take into account as primacy, flavor and then cost (Low price listed in the review), but I present them as "links" in no particular order (I'll leave that up to your wallet and will), except Red Wines are listed separate from White Wines.

Food and wine? These are wines you will easily enjoy without food, but most of us are thinking barbecues and pick nicks!  Need some help pairing? Check-out What wine goes with what food? (WineIntro)

  1. Dennis,

    A very nice list and beautiful photos!


    1. Nick, I suppose I should have had some of these glimpses into NH landscapes before now, but it never dawned on me that people would like them.
      As for the wines, I found a trend of exceptional value developing, and with the recent sales making these wines more accessible I didn't want to wait too long, even though I hadn't had that many White Wines thus far into the warmer season.
      NHLS now has 15% off American wines, and with their on-line 10% coupon, it's time to stock-up!
      Having finally tasted that Groth Res. I'm needing one for the Euro-cave:-), and that can only happen after tasting, what for me is, the best American red-wine I've ever had.
      I know, TMI, but I just want NH wine shoppers to understand that inflation is on the march when it comes to certain wines, one French Bordeaux I intend to review has increased in price by a whopping $30 since I bought it not a year ago.
      So, to NH wine shoppers, GET out there!

  2. Thank's a lot for sharing this type of important information. It's a very useful information about the Wine Providing services...
