Who: Christian Eck, sommelier, Art and Soul in Washington, DC
Why: “Full bodied, slightly dry and high acidity make this a go-to white for me during the cold winter and the heavier meals it brings. I like to open this bottle and enjoy it with a book. It is also a good pair with soups, stews, and roast pork or vegetables.”
