As summer’s heat gives way to the coolness of fall, it’s time to make the transition from crisp whites to light reds. Bersano Costalunga Barbera d’Asti DOCG from Piedmont, Italy, shows off Barbera’s electric acidity—it’s the perfect pour on pizza night. On Thanksgiving, it’s hard to go wrong with Pinot Noir. New Zealand’s Villa Maria Private Bin Pinot Noir Marlborough is a fine example, with raspberry fl avours and a touch of spice. Tart, juicy and refreshing, Malivoire Gamay VQA is about as light as red wine gets. Gently chill it and serve with burgers.
The bold spices and slow-cooked dishes of Indian cuisine make it an irresistible takeout option in fall. It’s more commonly paired with aromatic whites such as Gewürztraminer or off -dry Riesling, but if you’re a ‑red wine drinker, try it with Featherstone Cabernet Franc VQA. This complex Ontario red is especially good with anything charred in a tandoor oven, and its floral profile is terrific with vegetable dishes.
