9 Hot White Wines #98

9 Hot White Wines

Summer brings a bevy of options in the world of wine.

We’re eating fresher, lighter foods and running out to the BBQ grill. The fabulous fare begs for the lighter wines to pair with it.

Today we are taking a departure from the safe Chardonnay we all know and most love. Instead, let’s embark on an white wine adventure for the palate! Many of these varietals contain less alcohol so we can sip a little more and offer a light and lively taste that satiates and truly compliments the divine flavors this season brings.

During this episode, we are going for an adventure down the road of the nine hottest whites you should be drinking right now!
