While all of the wines on this tasting list are totally crushable for the glorious weather to come in the next month or two, they are all also wines geared to surprise and delight, ranging from less common varietals to less common growing regions to unexpected flavor profiles from familiar grapes. While some of the wines may be unexpected, they have several things in common: their origin on small family owned vineyards, the use of sustainable growing and production methods, and the fact that they all scream spring.
