Most years I would be headed out of town for a spring getaway, admiring bright flowers or exploring farmers’ markets. This year, however, I’m focused on my recent purchase of a new (i.e., used) house and I’m worrying about sewer cleanouts, paint rollers, and missing shingles. But once all the patching, painting, and pruning are done, I’ll finally have room to garden, and to have friends and colleagues over for a leisurely Sunday brunch, perhaps bribing them with a magnum or two to help with the weeding. I’m probably not alone in needing a bit of spring-cleaning help, either. But absent an easily enticed group of friends, you might have to buckle down and do it yourself. Ah, but consider a lively glass of sparkling Petit Royal while you transplant those tender lettuces; a bright, peppy rosé before reorganizing the garage; or a lush, juicy red while painting the fence. I encourage you to mine this collection to enhance your spring bounty, and know that when the trowel and rake need to come out, you have my sympathies. But hard work has its rewards—at least one of them should be good wine.
If you’re like me, you’ll get a thrill not just from savoring the tried-and-true classics over and over again, but also from trying novelties that open our mind to the never-ending possibilities the wine world has to offer, all while stimulating the palate with new flavors.

Here at Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant we don’t believe in selling anything mediocre, and we would certainly not put our name on a wine we didn’t believe in. So our values are just that, wines that are full of value and quality.
There are hundreds of wines in our portfolio, but not nearly enough space in our monthly newsletters to feature them all. Here you’ll find recent arrivals and new additions to our site, from half-bottles to Jeroboams, across France and Italy.
