What to Pour

Refreshing, a great match with food, and with all the charm of traditional Champagne, Prosecco is a less-expensive way to add a celebratory note sans a hefty price tag. We poured Mionetto Vineyards’ “Sergio” Prosecco ($18-$24), an extra-dry and well-balanced expression of the Prosecco grape from Italy’s Veneto region.

A 2004 Four Vines “Naked” Chardonnay was an easy choice for lovers of still whites. It gets its name by way of steel-tank fermentation rather than oak barrels, which tend to overpower the Chardonnay grape. It hails from Santa Barbara County in California ($10-$12).

Red wine with fish? Sure, especially a Pinot Noir, which ought to be soft and well rounded with light, cherry-berry notes. We opted for Jolivet “Attitude” Pinot Noir ($18-$20) because of its provenance — France’s Loire Valley, a place known for its love of trout.
