White wines are often shunted into the same category as white pants once the cold weather kicks in after Labor Day. Red wine gets top billing for anyone sitting by a crackling fire.
But for those of us who enjoy seafood year-round, it's a self-defeating rule. So we spoke to Jason Ferris of The Sea Fire Grill, who assures us that if we go beyond convention we can find some pretty satisfying whites even when it's cold outside.
His biggest tip is to not serve your white wines chilled. He believes that many white wines are better at room temperature and even decanted. One of his stand-out choices for winter is pinot gris. "It's a little fatter in texture, it has rounder, richer notes. It has some of the fruit flavors you would associate with winter-style cuisines. But I also really associate texture with it. It has a warming effect to it."
For the rest of Ferris' tips watch the video above, and if you want his tips in person you can always head over to The Sea Fire Grill.
