the other night, tom & i sat down at the bar of a local restaurant. i ordered a sauvignon blanc & really relished that first sip. the evening sun was hot on our skin as we walked in & as i drank that wine, i thought to myself, “white wine season is here,”.
not that we ever stopped drinking whites during the cooler months, it’s just that when there’s a chill in the air, the tannic reds & big zins just warm your soul. now that things are warming up, there’s something very refreshing about crisp, acidic flavors.
this is one of our favorites under $20.
a blend of several white grape varieties like chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, gewürztraminer, viognier & more, this wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks to maintain its bright fruit flavors.
the ferrari-carano winery was one of our first stops on our honeymoon, although we didn’t taste this wine then. we sampled some at a tasting once we got back home & it’s been an everyday staple of ours ever since.
