Hello Everyone!New England was surprised with record breaking heat over the
weekend for the month of April, and after the winter we had to
put up with, it’s about time the sun became our friend again. My
partners in California are not complaining about the weather
they’re having either, so I thought I’d take a peek at our
food and wine pairing stats to see what’s cooking.Something cool is happening…in comes the nice weather,
and out came the grills!Top pairings on Hello Vino over the weekend:What wine goes with steak ?
