For Molly Sims it’s important that her wine, just like her food, be as natural and responsible as possible. Sims raves about Club W and their biodynamic wine making, the process that puts an emphasis on doing what’s best for the soil and the surrounding environment. Because of this focus on natural processes and the total lack of pesticides and chemicals, the health benefits are similar to organic wines.
On her website, the beautiful mom shares what makes a great springtime white wine. As Sims states, it’s a light to medium bodied wine with the right mix of bright, juicy flavors and floral notes. See Sim’s choices below.
2015 VINYASA MUSCAT CANELLI
Muscat Canelli grapes are traditionally on the sweeter side but the winemakers harvest the fruit early for a natural acidity. As a result, it ends up producing a light, easy-drinking white with just a touch of sweetness. Described as having the flavor of pear, white tea, and orange blossom, a glass of this wine chilled is perfect on a spring day.
2015 PORTER & PLOT GRENACHE BLANC
This wine comes from Santa Ynez Valley–a California region that these grapes love best. Porter & Plot is so smooth and refreshing—it’s hard not to have more than one glass! If you’ve never had Grenache Blanc before, it’s usually used in white blends to add weight and texture. But it still offers the aromatic fruit flavor. So, the best of both worlds!
2015 ONE FROM THE QUIVER TORRONTES
Torrontes, Argentina’s signature white grape, is everything you look for in a white wine. It’s crisp, dry, and a refreshing tropical aroma. Club W’s Chief Wine Officer, Brian Smith, crafted this bottle himself in the first winery he ever worked in which sits on La Rioja in Northern Spain. It’s the perfect bottle to open while relaxing on the weekend!
