Here at Wine Library, we are proud Mets fans. How proud? Let's just say that one of us seriously considered naming his first child Mookie (suffice it to say, that one didn't make it through). So now that the new season has started, here are some wines that we'd like to recommend to our fellow fans.

Wine you'll need when yet another pitcher needs Tommy John surgery

2013 Nals Margreid Pinot Grigio Alto Adige

Jacob deGrom, Jenrry Mejia, Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler… who’s next? Maybe you? Better buy a case just to be sure.

Wine for learning the new outfield dimensions now that the fences at Citi Field have come in yet again

Les Rocailles Boniface Brut De Savoie

Hearing that it’s even closer to the original dimensions of Shea Stadium gives us the warm fuzzies… Which is the exact same thing sparkling wine does.

Wine to maximize your amusement while Bartolo Colon does this:

2013 Casta Salvajes Famas Malbec

After something that disjointed, you’ll need a wine that’s well-integrated and composed. The Casta Salvajes is perfect for that.

Wine to save for (hopefully) celebrating a playoff berth!

2005 Marques Del Puerto Bentus Rioja

Let’s face it, the inevitable wildcard game is going to literally take years off of our lives. Better drink something old, then...

And finally, you can enjoy this when The Mets finally stop paying Bobby Bonilla

2009 Wild Duck Creek Springflat Shiraz

This Shiraz oughtta be showing great by 2025… sooooo.
