Dear Bacchus, March 1, 2013

It's March, so yes, spring is around the corner! Keep those warm, happy thoughts as you shop for some of my top wine picks in tomorrow's wine picks. I've also recommended great wines for March 16.

Want to find out which mouth-watering dishes will pair beautifully with those wines? Our team has launched a new section with more than 100 food and wine pairing articles, from chicken and cheese to pizza and pasta. You'll also find pairing videos on those topics.

Mother's Day, Father's Day and weddings are also on the horizon. Here are three terrific wines to give as gifts from my column in More Magazine.

Finally, here's an inspiring video story about how you can do good by drinking well. The founders of The Little Grape That Could share some moving stories of kindness that have flooded in since the launch of their non-profit wine brand.

Have a great weekend!
