Top Ten White Wines

Here's our Top 10 White Wines That We Are Loving Right Now!

10. Nieport Docil, Vinho Verde (Portugal)                                                                              $12.99
A perfect everyday white wine. Light and refreshing but with flavor that lingers. If your looking for something impressive in whites under $15, this is your new go to.

9. Berger, Gruner Veltliner (Austria)                                                                                      $12.99
A very unique grape that is native to Austria. Similar to Pinot Grigio but with a great  minerality that will win you over instantly. Comes in a 1L bottle (more bang for your buck!).

8. Chateau de Bonhoste, White Bordeaux (France)                                                               $10.99
This mostly Sauvignon Blanc based white wine is delicious! It has clean lime zest and grapefruit flavors that are perfect for Summer. Try this one with fresh seafood such as mussels or clams with garlic butter and parsley for a real treat.

7. Calea, Fiano (Italy)                                                                                                                  $9.99
Not your boring old Pinot Grigio! This Italian white is made from the Fiano grape. Flavors of apricot, melon and an almond nuttiness that compliments the crisp citrus notes perfectly! 

6. Chateau Ste Michelle HHH, Sauvignon Blanc (Washington)                                            $14.49
A top 100 Wine Spectator Winner! Intense flavors of citrus and tropical fruits with a bracing lime acidity that will wake up your taste buds. See why everyone is talking about Washington wines!

5. Pepi, Chenin Blanc/Viognier (California)                                                                              $6.99
This is our new house favorite! Don't let the crazy price fool you. This is an amazing blend of Chenin Blanc which is crisp and refreshing with Viognier to give it rich floral and tropical notes! I almost passed this one up before I tried it, but I was glad I gave it a shot.

4. Chateau L Oiseliniere, Muscadet (France)                                                                         $13.99
The perfect shellfish wine. This Muscadet comes from the Loire Valley where they eat alot of mussels, clams and lobster. A light salinity and melon flavors go great with clams casino!

3. Morgante, Bianco de Morgante (Italy)                                                                                $16.99
A white wine made from the red grape Nero d'Avola! Another great wine from Sicily in Italy. Complex flavors come from the red grape but it still has a refreshing finish. Very cool!

2. Bench, Chardonnay (California)                                                                                            $19.99
Your classic Russian River Valley Chardonnay but with a restrained, balanced finish. Up front you get the familiar butter, vanilla and toasty oak but it never overpowers the palate.

1. Richter Zepplin, Riesling (Germany)                                                                                   $12.99
A hard won victory for the Number 1 Spot. This wine is just amazing every time I try it. This is not a sweet Riesling, but neither is it dry. Filled with rich flavors of peach, apple and apricot flavors followed by a citrusy acidity that cleans you palate on the finish. Awesome!
