Field Days


Kari Cooney Wine Director Brewer's Fork


Regardless of where you land in the pumpkin spice latte debate, there’s no denying fall in New England is something special. And while the foliage, sweater weather, and football games are appealing in their own right, it’s the food that has us waiting with bated breath for the autumnal equinox.

Fall in New England is a season of abundance. Apple picking, cider doughnuts, roasted squash and root vegetables. The crisp air means it’s finally cool enough to keep the oven on for hours of roasting chicken or braising pork loin with hearty seasonal greens. Then there’s the aforementioned football season, when tailgating and backyard barbecues rise to prominence and grilled sausages, burgers, chicken wings, and pulled pork get their greasy due. 

With heartier fare headed our way, a wine with elegance, finesse, and balance is what’s often called for—something to relieve our palates from the earthy depth of root vegetables or the deliciously sticky flavor of barbecue ribs. Enjoy the wines in this month’s curation alongside whatever form abundance takes, be it a candlelit dinner of classic French fare, or during a Hail Mary moment on the living room couch. Wine is for every day—especially this season.


  • Illahe Viognier: Medium-bodied with flavors of ripe apricot, tangerine and white flowers, with fresh acidity. Perfect with roast chicken and veggies or squash.
  • Domaine Santa Giulietta Rouge: The perfect tailgate wine, great with BBQ, burgers or steak. A fuller-bodied Corsican gem with flavors of ripe berries, spice, and earth.  
  • Luis Seabra Xisto Ilimitado Tinto: Lighter-bodied and vibrant, with flavors of red currant, pomegranate, and fresh herbs. You'll love this one with roast pork loin, chicken, or duck. 
  • Col d'Orcia Rosso di Montalcino: A classic with pizza or pasta with bolognese. Medium-bodied with flavors of ripe cherry, warm spice, dried tobacco.
