Warmer temperatures are on their way in many parts of the country, and many of us are looking forward to sharing the sunshine together after spending months inside and away from friends and family. This guide to the best white wines for summer 2021 will help you choose varieties and vintages that will suit both your tastes and the warmer temperatures.
When temperatures dip, many people want to cozy up by the fireplace with a bold, full-bodied red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah. These rich wines are comforting this time of the year and often pair beautifully with hearty winter meals. But full-bodied red wines aren’t the only beverage of choice for the chilliest winter months. Opulent and creamy white wine can be just as warm and comforting in the cold seasons. In fact, bolder white wines like Chardonnay, Viognier, Champagne, and Sauternes pair even better with some traditional winter foods than red wines do.
