White Wines for Winding Down Summer

Savor the rest of the season's hot, sunny days with chilled white wine. Light, crisp, and refreshing, white wines are wonderful this time of year–and the perfect antidote to end-of-summer blues!

Here are our top 5 white wine picks to uncork as summer winds down, along with suggested ways to enjoy them.

Take in Ocean Views

Breathe in salty seaside air while sipping on 2017 Les Anges Muscadet Sevre Et Maine Sur Lie. Made from French Muscadet grapes, this light and dry white has hints of fresh citrus with a lively finish. It's the perfect wine pairing with seafood, especially oysters.

Relax at the Pool

Zesty and wonderfully refreshing, Pinot Grigio just hits the spot on a hot day. Uncork 2017 Cala De' Poeti Pinot Grigio I.G.T., a quintessentially crisp Italian white expressing notes of apple, peach, and hawthorn. Serve it ice cold for ultimate refreshment.

Look up at the Stars

Take in the splendor of a starry night with Abbazia Moscato Vino Dolce I.G.T. This fun and spritzy Italian off-dry white tastes delicious with beautiful floral notes. Enjoy this bottles as a sweet treat or aperitif.

Cruise on the Water

A breeze in your hair and a glass of wine in your hand–what could be better? Sail away with 2017 Starlight Ridge Chardonnay, an easy-drinking Australian white offering fruit flavors of white peach and ripe melon with a creamy texture and crisp finish.

Entertain on the Patio

August is Rosé month, so we couldn't help but include this summer essential on the list! Patio sipping with friends calls for 2017 Racine Côtes de Provence Rosé. This light and expressive French Rosé refreshes with flavors of lychee, peach, and mango.
